According to multiple reports, Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran will defend his title in September against Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.

Set for September 5 from Uncasville, Connecticut, Bellator 123 will air opposite a card put on by the UFC that same night from nearby Ledyard. The main card will be broadcast on Spike TV.

Curran (20-5) was expected to face Freire earlier this year, but an injury forced the bout to be delayed. He recaptured the title with a win over Daniel Straus.

Freire (21-2) worked his way back from a previous championship match loss to Curran, winning the Season 9 featherweight tournament.

Below is the current lineup:

Bellator Featherweight Championship
Pat Curran (c) vs. Patricio “Pitbull” Freire
