Don’t expect Curran vs. Pitbull to be on the Bellator PPV

With the Bellator PPV two months away, it’s hard to formulate a card outside of Rampage vs. King Mo and Alvarez vs Chandler 3. Everything else will fall where it falls, but what we do know is that Pat Curran will not be fighting his rightful featherweight opponent, Pitbull Freire.

Bjorn Rebney spoke to BloodyDisgusting about the matter:

[Straus vs. Curran] was a grueling fight for Pat and it’s only two months out so I am not sure I want to ask him to make that turnaround. Pitbull is a monster… Pat can’t be fighting in 2 months against a guy like Pitbull.

Our talent team has done an incredible job proposing [PPV] fights to me, but I wanted to get past Alvarez vs. Chandler and Mo vs. Rampage and then we’ll start to fill in the spots from there.
