Patricio Freire will have to wait a few more months to cash in his shot at the Bellator featherweight championship.
Pat Curran, the current titleholder, confirmed on Twitter Tuesday that he suffered a fractured orbital in training and will not be able to do any kind of workouts for six weeks.
It was my 2nd to last sparring session and I fractured my orbital… Sorry everyone….The fights off
