Bellator 172 Salaries: Patricky Freire Tops List With $80,000

Patricky Freire is $80,000 richer after starching Josh Thomson.

Freire and Thomson were originally set to compete in the co-main event of Bellator 172. Instead they took center stage as the event’s headliner when Matt Mitrione was pulled from his heavyweight bout with Fedor Emelianenko due to kidney stones.

“Pitbull” was in enemy territory inside the SAP Center in San Jose, California. Freire shined with a second-round knockout over “The Punk.” He caught Thomson coming in with an uppercut as he was shooting in for a takedown. A couple of followup strikes and Thomson was out.

Cheick Kongo snagged a cool $75,000 for his dominant decision victory over Oli Thompson. While Josh Koscheck’s return to action ended in a TKO loss to Mauricio Alonso, he did nab $80,000 for competing.
