Bellator Uncut is a new weekly series that shows fans what goes on behind the scenes. This week we take a look at what went down backstage last Friday night at The Horseshoe in Hammond, Ind., at Bellator MMA 112 when Pat Curran reclaimed the featherweight title from Daniel Straus in the night’s main event. What Straus went through to make weight is worth the watch by itself.
At 13-0 and the undefeated Bellator Heavyweight World Champion, Russian knockout connoisseur Vitaly Minakov is ready to extend his reign as “The New Emperor” and defend his world title against Cheick Kongo live on Spike TV Friday, April 4th from Nevada’s Reno Events Center. The night will also feature the Bellator Middleweight and Welterweight Semifinals, along with a full card of local talent.
The Bellator 112 official weigh-in’s will take place on Thursday, March 13, at 6 p.m. ET. The event will be headlined by the Bellator featherweight title fight between champion Daniel Straus and former challenger Pat Curran. This will be the rubbermatch between the two fighters as Curran defeated Straus in 2009 via KO, and Straus earning a unanimous decision win in their last outing to earn the Bellator title.
We knew that that Alavarez vs. Chandler 3 was going to happen as part of Bellator’s first pay per view and we also expected Quinton Jackson vs. King Mo on the card but we got the date and time of the engagement today from Bellator. “Rampage” is back on pay per view and gets an added perk, he’s close to home.
