Bellator featherweight champion Patricio Pitbull recently issued a $1 million challenge, stating that he can beat any UFC champion.
A UFC champion did answer the challenge, with that person being UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski, who said the following on Twitter:
Pitbull doesn’t like being called “easy money” and has promised to knockout Volkanovski if they were to ever fight each other:
@alexvolkanovski just so u know U are fighting Pitbull the fighter not the rapper. I'm glad u recovered from ur cauliflower pussy. @danawhite it wud be my pleasure 2take ur $, I'll even pay 4 Alex The Average’s hospital bills. It wud B an Honor to wear Max Holloway’s Belt. #LFG— Patricio Freire (@PatricioPitbull) August 26, 2020
Between what is going on between Volkanovski and Pitbull, plus what Dana White said about the Bellator light heavyweight division, it seems like the rivalry between the UFC and Bellator is growing with each passing day.
