Pat Curran vs. Daniel Straus Headlines April 4 Bellator Card


Pat Curran (18-4) will defend his Bellator featherweight title on April 4 against Daniel Straus (21-4) at Ovation Hall at Revel in Atlantic City, NJ.

“This may end up being the most challenging fight I’ve faced up this point,” Curran said. “Daniel is going to make for a very tough challenge, but I know what I’m capable of. I feel like I’m always growing as a fighter, and the sky is really the limit for me. I’ve got the belt, and I’m not letting anyone take it away from me.”

“Fighting for the Bellator Featherweight Title against Pat just signifies how my career has come full circle,” Straus said. “It was my loss to Pat that motivated me to become a better fighter. Now I get to see how much better I’ve actually gotten. Getting a chance to show my skills on Spike TV is a huge opportunity for me.  The stage keeps getting bigger and the viewers and eyes are growing.  I welcome the challenge to perform well in front of millions against one of the world’s best featherweights.  I feel I have a lot to provide in this fight and I intend on doing so.”

Also on the card, Jessica “Evil” Eye returns to the Bellator cage to face Munah Holland.

The Bellator 95 preliminary card will be streamed live on Spike.com, and the main card will air live on Spike TV.
