Patricio “Pitbull” Freire holds both the Bellator Lightweight and Featherweight Championships and currently stands as the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the league. The 34-year-old Brazilian boasts a record of 32 wins and four losses and is widely considered to be the best combatant on the Bellator roster (something that’s reflected in his pound-for-pound ranking). His featherweight title, which he reclaimed at Bellator 178 in April 2017 after losing it in 2015, is on the line tonight.

Pitbull’s challenger has a tough fight ahead of him, but should hopefully prove to be a worthy opponent for the two-division champ. A.J. “Mercenary” McKee may not have the pedigree of Freire, although, with 17 wins and zero losses to his name, he currently has a perfect professional record. The 26-year-old Californian joined Bellator in 2015 and has ripped through the ranks to become the number one fighter on the featherweight roster (other than the champion himself). He won the Bellator Featherweight World Grand Prix Semifinals last November, finally earning his first title shot after more than five years with the league.

Showtime costs $11 per month, and after you sign up, you can watch Bellator 263: Pitbull vs. McKee live tonight along with all of the other content the platform has to offer. New subscribers get a 30-day trial, too, which is a fine way to watch Bellator 263 free.
