bellator 133

Former Bellator champion Pat Curran will return to action this February, meeting Daniel Weichel at Bellator 133.

Set for February 13 from the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California, the Spike TV main card features Melvin Manhoef vs. Alexander Shlemenko.

Officials also announced a women’s featherweight scrap between Julia Budd and Talita Nogueira.

“I get more and more excited every time I discuss this card,” said Bellator MMA president Scott Coker. “With Curran and Weichel, you know you’re going to get a championship-caliber fight, and I’m looking forward to seeing another former Strikeforce fighter in Julia Budd test herself against a very dangerous Talita Nogueira.”

Curran (20-6) is a two-time holder of the Bellator featherweight belt. He lost the title to Patricio “Pitbull” Freire earlier this year. Weichel (34-8) is on a six-fight win streak and won the Season 10 Bellator title recently.

Budd (6-2) has fought for both Strikeforce and Invicta FC before, while Nogueira (6-0) is regarded as one of the top prospects in the division. She has scored four submission wins in her six career bouts.

Below is the current lineup:

Middleweight: Alexander Shlemenko vs. Melvin Manhoef

Featherweight: Pat Curran vs. Daniel Weichel

Women’s Featherweight: Julia Budd vs. Talita Nogueira
