Although Freitas (122), the 32-year-old brother of Acelino, came out throwing punches as if there was no tomorrow and actually hurt the champion with a solid right to the head, Barrera (122) quickly assessed what he had to do by immediately getting down to work. Backing Freitas up against the ropes, he smashed in a battery of big punches before a vicious left hook to the liver led to a count out after just 87 seconds.
