Patricio Freire reclaimed the Bellator featherweight championship in decisive fashion Friday night when he defeated longtime rival Daniel Straus once again in the Bellator 178 headliner.

Freire (26-4 MMA, 14-4 BMMA) became a two-time 145-pound champion when he caught Straus (24-7 MMA, 11-4 BMMA) in a second-round guillotine choke submission in the Spike-televised main event at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

With the win, “Pitbull” improved to 3-1 in his four-fight series with Straus.
