Daniel Straus avenged a 2009 loss and won his first world title in the process, after earning a unanimous decision victory over Pat Curran at Bellator 106. The win over Curran was his sixth in a row, including victories over Jeremy Spoon, Mike Corey, and Marlon Sandro in the season six featherweight tournament.
