Patricio “Pitbull” Freire (25-3) is said to be seeking to avenge his brother’s loss to Lightweight Champion Michael Chandler. In order to get a shot at the champ it looks like the promotion is giving both him and Benson Henderson (23-6) a shot at Chandler by having them face each other at Bellator 160 as the main event.

When Henderson made his debut at Bellator 153 he aimed high for the welterweight title and fell short. Now he is looking to see if he still has what it takes at lightweight in the match against "Pitbull". If Patricio gets a shot at Chandler on the condition he beats Henderson, it would seem the same goes for the former UFC champion.

Patricio put a bulls-eye on Chandler just after his brother’s defeat; if you missed it you can see it in the Vine below courtesy of MMA Gifs:
