PostSubject: Bellator Lightweight Champ Will Brooks claims he was assaulted by Featherweight Champ Patricio Freire and his brother, claims to have video evidence   Wed Nov 04, 2015 4:39 pm

Quote :
With just 48 hours to go until Friday’s Bellator 145, lightweight champion Will Brooks is accusing featherweight champion Patricio “Pitbull” Freire, Patricio’s brother Patricky, and others in their camp of attacking him.

Shortly after the alleged incident, Brooks, who is preparing to defend his belt against Marcin Held on Friday, claimed that the Freire brothers “jumped” him while he was on the phone with his mother. He posted his accusations on Twitter.






The accusations were initially met with a heavy dose of skepticism, considering that Brooks and the Freire brothers have a past of not getting along, and with many questioning why Brooks would immediately use Twitter to air his grievances if he had just been assaulted. Brooks, however, indicated that someone in his camp apparently has video footage of the incident, and that he intends to make said footage available after authorities have had a chance to review it.




Although Bellator officials did not confirm the incident itself, they appear to be taking Brooks’ allegations seriously, telling MMAWeekly.com, “We are looking into the situation and gathering surveillance footage at this time. We have no further comment at this time.”

What the hell!? Why, what's the damn point? You make the sport look bad, you make your selves look bad, and you could very well lose your job... I just don't understand, wonder what started it all. I can't wait to see the video.

Being a Diaz fan, I'm reserving judgment until I see the video.
If this was just some trash talking that got out of hand and a bunch of guys came to blows, eh, shit happens.
But if they legit grabbed him out of nowhere and laid into him then helll yeah; ban the bitches.

Apparently at least 3 of us care, given the responses to the thread.

Shouldn't this just be a criminal matter? Or even civil?
I don't really care what Bellator decides to do.

^^^

I agree.
I thought the same thing; If this happened outside of Bellator's jurisdiction, yeah- maybe it could fall under fighter code of conduct guidelines, but it seems that they should let the authorities sort it out first before "looking into the situation".
