Curran vs. Straus 3 to headline Bellator 112


Pat Curran defeated Daniel Straus early in both of their careers, and Straus recently defeated Curran in Bellator. That could only lead to a rubber match and it has been booked for March:

The Bellator Featherweight Title will once again be on the line in one of the biggest rematches of 2014 as reigning Bellator Featherweight Champion Daniel Straus defends his crown against former Bellator Champion and Crystal Lake, Illinois native Pat Curran on Friday, March 14 from Chicago’s Horseshoe Casino at Bellator 112.

Boasting a 22-4 record including a dominate 8-1 record inside the Bellator cage, Straus enters this trilogy looking to make his mark in the featherweight division and cement his place as one of the best fighters in MMA.

“Whenever you fight, each win means something different and I know this one is incredibly important,” Straus said. “I want to continue to be a top notch fighter, and earn that respect I think I deserve. I know this is going to be a different fight than the last time. Each time we have fought, Pat and myself have been different fighters, and this will fight will be no different.”

@DanielStraus: My perception is that Bellator wants him as champ so bad not only does he get immediate rematch but gets it in...

Hopefully Pat comes prepared with a better gameplan. The guy was a great champion and I hope to see him reclaim the gold. Not to take anything away from Daniel, he's a work horse and deserved that oppurtunity that he seized.

Pitbull is pissed."Where title shots are earned, not given." Really??? / "Onde disputas de cinturao sao conquistadas, nao dadas." E mesmo??? Bellator just disrespected my right to fight for the belt. O Bellator acaba de desrespeitar meu direito de lutar pelo cinturao.

I know Daniel wants to fight and it doesnt matter who, he wants to stay active.

Easy way to avoid these kind of problems:Create another set of championship belts, for fighters Bellator wants to be champs. That way Warren, Curran, Chandler etc. can always be champion.

Pat said he wouldn't do another tournament.  Bellator offered him the fight if he extended his contract out further, which he agreed to.   IF, Pat loses to Straus again, he will do another tournament.

I'm okay with this rematch. I would have given Frodo or Pitbull a shot first, but I'm not too upset about this. Hopefully the LW title gets defended twice in this spring season.
