Louis Taylor on Why He Left Bellator, Where He’ll Fight Next


Louis Taylor

Chicago Fight Team’s Louis Taylor had just finished his main event victory against Eric Hammerich at APFC 11. As he left the cage to go celebrate with what seemed like a small city of fans and family, he kindly gave us a minute to address some issues: MTC fighter Mike Pitz, why he left Bellator and where he’ll be fighting next.

On Mike Pitz: “Pitz you’re a coward, stop wasting my time. We can be friends on Facebook, birthdays, but get off this ‘I wanna fight him, I don’t wanna fight him crap'”.

On Why he left Bellator: “Contract dispute. They don’t want to show me, they don’t want to pay me. I’d rather be on my own, getting it in at home. Then when I grow here, I’ll rep here on the big stage: the UFC.”

APFC promoter Rich Seldal said Taylor will again be the main event on in October 5. “If that’s what they want, I’m here,” Taylor said.
