Bellator LogoBellator on Friday announced the top of its line-up for Bellator 73: Curran vs. Pitbull, which takes place on Aug. 24 at Harrah’s Tunica Hotel and Casino in Tunica Resorts, Miss.

Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran headlines the fight card, putting his belt on the line against Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.

They will be joined by Marcos Galvao vs. Luis Nogueira squaring off in the Season 6 Bantamweight Tournament Final, along with the finals of the Summer Series Light Heavyweight Tournament.

Travis Wiuff, Attila Veigh, Tim Carpenter and Emanuel Newton won their light heavyweight quarterfinal bouts at Bellator 71 and will pair off at Bellator 72 on July 20 for the semifinal round.

“Harrah’s Tunica was a fantastic venue partner for us when we made our first visit last year, and I expect another energized, sold-out crowd on August 24th,” Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney said. “Pat Curran vs. Patricio Pitbull is a world title fight between two of the most explosive and versatile featherweights on earth. Both can finish any fight with relentless strikes or vicious submissions. This will be an epic title fight to remember for years to come.”

Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased via Ticketmaster.com or by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000. Bellator 73 will air live on MTV2 and in HD on EPIX, while the preliminary bouts streamed live online at Spike.com.
