Enrique Barzola declared that he’s interested in being a participant in the upcoming Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix and he’s waiting for the call from the promotion officials.
‘The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America’ Season 2 winner had a successful Bellator debut in January when he defeated Darrion Caldwell by third-round TKO at Bellator 273. Now he aims for an alternate position in the upcoming tournament.
In his recent interview with MMA Junkie, Barzola said that indeed he wants to be in the Grand Prix. He’s 32 years old and he feels that he’s in the best shape of his life. His main focus is the bantamweight championship belt, and even if he will not take part in Grand Prix he will fight whoever Bellator wants him to and still make his way toward his goal.
Brazola is training in the American Kickboxing Academy to stay in shape and make the best of the opportunity that may come. He stated that he will be ready for April so he will not have any excuses when that will happen. The Peruvian fighter stated that many things can happen like COVID or injury, which will make a spot in the tournament open for him. He’s willing to take full advantage of the opportunities presented to him and become the next champion.
The aforementioned Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix is scheduled for the later part of the year and the participants are as follows: division champion Serio Pettis, Magomed Magomedov, James Gallagher, Raufeon Stots, Kyoji Horiguchi, Juan Archuleta, Patchy Mix, and Leandro Higo.
