Injuries have kept Pat Curran out of the cage since winning Bellator’s featherweight championship over Joe Warren with a stellar third round knockout in March. Curran won the 2011 Summer Series featherweight tourney with three consecutive wins over Luis Palomino, Ronnie Mann, and Marlon Sandro.
Patricio Freire gets his second chance at Bellator gold, after losing a highly controversial split decision to then-champ, Joe Warren in June of 2010. He participated in season four’s featherweight tournament, defeating Georgi Karakhanyan, Wilson Reis, and Daniel Straus to earn another chance at the belt.
