The above picture is not the results of a fighter who just stepped out of the cage.

It is the alleged aftermath of an altercation between reigning Bellator lightweight champion Will Brooks and the “Pitbull” brothers, Patricio Freire, the Bellator featherweight champion, and Patricky Freire.

The entire incident took place in a hotel in St. Louis, the host city of Bellator 145 this weekend.

Brooks took to Twitter shortly after to give his perspective on his scrap with the two Brazilian brothers. It should be noted Brooks has deleted the original tweet with the image of the shirt.

Freire would quickly jump to Twitter in attempt to give his side of he story while claiming it was actually Brooks that had initiated the violent exchange.

Bellator official later revealed they are currently looking to obtain surveillance footage of the allege altercation in order to figure out what actually happened.

Brooks and Patricio Freire are both scheduled to defend their Bellator titles against Marcin Heldand and Daniel Straus, respectively, this Friday, Nov. 6 at Bellator 145. The entire event will live on Spike TV.
