In for BellatorFan's explanation of this rematch..

Any good reason besides it is the third fight in the series, somewhat marketable to people that havent seen the last fight? Phone Post 3.0

Fucking Bellator. I'm sorry but Curran clearly lost to Strauss, point deduction or not. And when you have Patricio Fucking Pitbull waiting in the wings, who went through the tourney and dominated throughout, yet you still give Curran a rematch. Whatever happened to title shots are earned not given? Curran has been very good, but not worth an instant rematch, what with the way that fight played out and with the killer you have waiting to get a title shot....

With Bellator exhausting all of their trilogy fights, you have to wonder if they are preparing for the end.

As a known Bellator shill this one isn't right really in any way

The fight wasn't close enough to justify a rematch and you have Frodo amd Pitbull waiting for there shots

Bad move by Bellator all around, put Pat back in the tournament

The embarrassing thing is they have TWO legit tournament winners waiting in the wings in Pitbull and Frodo.  Somehow I don't think Straus will get a rematch should he lose.

"Bellator...where title shots are earned...unless the boss really, really, really wants you to be champ because he's featured you in ads over and over."

Frodo cant get a visa so you cant hold that against Bellator.

But Pitbull as far as we all know isnt hurt.  If Pitbull was hurt this is their only option and I'd be good with it but Pitbull seems fine but they are going with this fight even though the last fight wasnt close.

It was pretty much a clean sweep for Straus and they fought in November.

* Curran was deducted 1 point in round 3: Illegal Knee to a Downed Opponent

LMAO!  Are you serious?  I predicted the "can't get a visa" excuse in the other thread two months ago.

It's also the rubber match, Curran won at XFO 29 and Straus won in Bellator.  

At the end of the day I think Bellator is putting on whatever they can because their days are numbered

Well this is stupid. First fight wasn't really that great, and it was about as decisive as it needed to be for Strauss. Just scrap it right now while there is still time and give Pitbull his shot. He already beat Strauss, let him do it again.

What did you predict?  That Frodo visa shit has been out there for a while now that he cant get a visa, its not something that just came up a week ago.

Er, second fight. Also, my guess is that Curran simply refused to fight in another tournament so to please him they put him back in there.

He may have, I don't think I heard that, I remember Eddie saying that a long time ago, maybe that's who you are thinking of?

I'm a big fan of Nah-Shon Burrell, so hopefully he destroys WM.
