Pitbull should be a much bigger star in MMA than he is. Rooting for Pitbull to win the GP.
Archuleta just won the BW title but Pitbull just handled him in Sep up at FW.
Patrico Pitbull is 3x Bellator tourny finalist, a 2x tourny champ and he has won the FW world title 2x and defended it 5x. He also won the LW championship from Chandler... the greatest LW in Bellator history. Now that Archuleta captured the BW title that makes it three weight of Bellator champs that Pitbull has beat. He has also beat Wilson Reis (who has challenged for the UFC FLW title) 2x.
He has to beat Carvalho and then the winner of the Sanchez/Weichel quarter final to make it to the finals of the current GP. In the finals he will have to beat the Caldwell vs McKee winner to win the GP.
After the GP he has said he wants to go down to BW and capture a title in a 3rd Bellator weight He wanted to go after the BW title while fighting in this GP but Bellator won't let him do it.
Of his four career loses, two were split decision loses and one was an injury/tko that required surgery in a fight he was winning up at LW vs former UFC LW champ Henderson. The fourth loss was a UD to a fighter he is 3-1 vs and Pitbull has finished him twice.
With things going a little different Pitbull could be 34-0 right now instead of 30-4. Nobody has ever finished him.
Coker said the GP should start again in November.
