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.
