Who were the parents and siblings of Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire
The Bellator superstar has had his fair share of bad days and even worse experiences before the fame he has earned in present times. The fighter, native to Natal, Brazil, grew up in very stringent conditions in a two-bedroom apartment. Pitbull shared his room with his seven siblings, his parents occupying the other room.
The locality they lived in, was far from the main city. Hence a hotspot for bandits and other extreme criminals. When Patricio was five, his family suffered a bandit attack which left the kid traumatic for life, as it involved extreme violence with bloodshed and gunshots.
“At that moment, I became a man. I saw the bandit with part of his head crumbled by the shot,” said Patricio. “I can’t sleep alone after this episode, But I have no fear of living beings. It was a night of terror. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.”
Hence, however frightening the incident might be, it surely made him a tough man and an even tougher fighter to compete with.
