Tofiq Musayev calls for title shot with Patricky Freire after 27-second KO at Bellator 283

Sidney Outlaw took a risk staying on the Bellator 283 card when his lightweight title fight against Patricky Freire was canceled. It’s safe to say that risk did not pay off. “Pitbull” Freire pulled out of the 155-pound title fight with an injury. But rather than wait for him to heal, Outlaw (16-5 MMA, 3-2 BMMA) remained on Friday’s card in Tacoma, Wash., in a co-main event slot against Tofiq Musayev (20-4 MMA, 1-0 BMMA).
