Bellator 286 Results: Patricio Freire defeats Adam Borics (Highlights)

Patricio Freire put his featherweight title on the line against Adam Borics in the headliner of tonight’s Bellator 286 event.

Freire (34-5 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since April’s Bellator 277 event, where he reclaimed the promotions 145lbs title with a unanimous decision win over A.J. McKee. ‘Pitbull’ had gone 8-1 over his past nine Bellator appearances ahead of tonight’s event.

Meanwhile, Adam Borics (18-2 MMA) entered tonight’s Bellator 286 headliner sporting a four-fight winning streak, his most recent being a unanimous decision victory over Mads Burnell. The Hungarian’s lone career loss came by submission against former bantamweight champion Darrion Caldwell back at Bellator 238.

Tonight’s ‘Freire vs. Borics’ title fight proved to be another strong showing for the champion in Patricio Freire. ‘Pitbull’ was able to frustrate Borics for the majority of the fight and used his veteran IQ to tactically outpoint ‘The Kid’. While Adam did have some moments in the fight, it wasn’t enough to sway any of the judges in his favor.
