Video Interview: Pat Curran talks Pitbull rematch and changes in Bellator


Bellator MMA featherweight champ Pat Curran talks the importance of his rematch with Patricio Pitbull, what's up with his fight with Frodo Khasbulaev, and what he wants to see in Scott Coker's version of Bellator.

The Fight Nerd got some time with Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran at a recent Bellator MMA Press event in NYC, where we talked about how his calf injury has been healing up and how his upcoming rematch against Patricio Pitbull in September for Curran's title at Bellator MMA 123.

We discuss the history between these two fighters, as well as how their Twitter war has been heating up the feud between these two more than Curran's epic trilogy with Daniel Straus. We also talk about any potential plans for a fight with Magomedrasul Khasbulaev and why this fight with "Frodo" probably will never happen at all, and his thoughts on Bjorn Rebney leaving Bellator and Scott Coker coming in to take over his role, and what changes Curran would like to see Coker implement in this new era for Bellator MMA.
