Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire vs. Pat Curran Featherweight Title Fight Added to Bellator 73

One of the most highly-anticipated fights in the featherweight division finally has its date.

Appearing on the Bellator 70 broadcast this evening, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney officially announced that Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran will take on 145 pound tournament winner Patricio Freire. The two will meet at the final event of the Bellator Summer Series, Bellator 73 on August 24th.

‘Pitbull’, of course, was scheduled to face former champion Joe Warren before a hand injury took him out of action. Fellow tournament winner Pat Curran stepped in for Freire, and absolutely demolished Warren.
