Curran-Freire next, Straus to receive winner

After a “Fight of The Year” contender which saw Pat Curran submit Daniel Straus to reclaim the Bellator featherweight belt, the promotion already knows what will come next in the division. Curran, now a two-time holder of the featherweight title, will see another rematch, this time against former title contender Patricio Freire, though CEO Bjorn Rebney did not say whether or not the turnaround for Curran could see him and Freire compete on the promotion’s May 17 pay-per-view event. Nevertheless, Straus will receive the winner of that bout, even if Curran should defeat Freire again.
