  4. 'He's kept this promotion going'

    Josh Thomson

    Former Bellator lightweight on BBC iPlayer

    He and his brother have been the pillars of this organisation. To see him finally get this is amazing. As a fighter you want him to win.

    He's helped keep this promotion going.

    But as one man's dream comes true another is crushed. I feel so sorry for Peter Queally.

  5. 'I want to thank my brother'

    BBC iPlayer

    Patricky Pitbull says on BBC iPlayer: "I do my team's strategy exactly.

    "[Facing the crowd] it doesn't matter, I'm the warrior, I'm the king, the champ.

    "I won't to thank my brother for helping me be the champ.

    "Now I stay here, enjoy the place. Enjoy the beer, I love it, let's go!"

    Patricky Pitbull

    The crowd is stunned and silent once again. These last two fights have not gone to script but that was an incredible finish by Patricky Pitbull.

  7. 'A good stoppage'

    John McCarthy

    Former MMA referee on BBC iPlayer

    He's in trouble, wobbly legs, he's not in control.

    There's no movement, no exchange and the referee stops the fight.

    A good stoppage and a big win. We have a new lightweight champion.

    Patricky Pitbull lands a strong right that sends Peter Queally to the floor. Queally scrambles to his feet but a vicious combo sends him down again and Pitbull moves in to land a flurry of hits before the referee steps in.

    Pitbull wins!

  9. Round Two

    Oh wow!

    Patricky Pitbull is not only able to continue but he comes flying out aggressively and has Peter Queally on the ropes!

    Nice to see the referee Kevin MacDonald giving a fighter time to clear up. This fight is too big not to.

  11. Round Two

    Patricky Pitbull is caught by an eye poke and he's being checked out by a doctor to see if he can continue...

    BBC Sport combat sports editor in London

    I think Peter is trying to tire Patricky out. Letting him offload and keeping his lead leg up so not to take much damage from low kicks.

  13. Round One

    Peter Queally

    Aggressive start by Peter Queally as he looks to land a kick to the body. Patricky Pitbull stays on guard, looking for opportunities of his own. He throws a couple of punches to the body, trying to lower Queally's guard.

    Both connect with a couple of punches to the face before Queally attempts a sweeping kick but Pitbull responds with a nice combo before the bell.

    Not much between them in round one.

    Peter Queally is a zombie. You'll have to take his head off to stop him.
