Pat Curran vs. John Teixeira among 3 additions to next month's Bellator 184


A featherweight scrap between former Bellator champ Pat Curran (22-7 MMA, 12-4 BMMA) and Brazilian veteran John Teixeira (21-2-2 MMA, 4-1 BMMA) is among three additions recently made official for next month’s Bellator 184 event.

The contest takes place on the Spike-broadcast main card of the Oct. 6 event, which takes place at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla.

The other two additions take place on the MMAjunkie-streamed preliminary card and include featherweights Gaston Reyno (6-2 MMA, 3-2 BMMA) vs. Westin Wilson (4-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), welterweights Justin Patterson (9-3 MMA, 3-2 BMMA) vs. Chance Rencountre (10-2 MMA, 1-1 BMMA).

Curran boasts two different Bellator title reigns, though the second lasted just one fight, submitting Daniel Straus to claim the title but then immediately losing a unanimous decision to Patricio Freire to hand it over. A loss to Daniel Weichel followed, but Curran has bounced back with wins over Emmanuel Sanchez and Georgi Karakhanyan.

Meanwhile, “Macapa” Teixeira fought once under the UFC banner, losing a split decision to Hugo Viana at UFC 147 in 2012 following a stint on the original season of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.” Teixeira has since gone 9-1-1 in 11 appearances, though the lone loss in the span was his most recent outing, a split-decision loss to Weichel at Bellator 177 in April.

Uruguayan prospect Reyno had a bizarre star to his career, opening with back-to-back no contests. He then rattled off five consecutive wins before battling through a recent 1-2 stretch in three consecutive bouts contested under the Bellator banner. He now faces Wilson, who makes his promotional debut.

Patterson and Rencountre meet in a rematch of a March 2016 contests at Bellator 151. Patterson was awarded a split-decision that night. Rencountre has since earned a pair of victories, including one in the Bellator cage, and now looks to even the score.
