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.

Curran and Freire were expected to face each other in the main event of Bellator 73 on August 24 from Mississippi.
