Video: Watch Pat Curran and Daniel Straus' first fight from XFO 29


Bellator MMA featherweight champion Pat Curran (19-4 MMA, 9-1 BMMA) has won six straight fights and 10 of his past 11. However, Daniel Straus (21-4 MMA, 7-1 BMMA) looks to end the streak – and exact some revenge – at Saturday’s Bellator 106 bout.

The fight, which airs on Spike TV from Long Beach Arena in California, is one of three title fights on the night. It’s also one of two that features a pair of top 10 opponents in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA rankings, with Curran ranked No. 5 and Straus No. 10 at 145 pounds.

However, the fighters have some history. In the seventh fight of both competitors’ pro careers, they met at XFO 29 in Illinois. The organization recently released the full fight video of the competitive bout, which ended in dramatic fashion.

Check it out above.
