Pat Curran will get his second crack at Bellator gold on March 9 at Bellator 61.

That's when the fast-rising featherweight will face off with reigning champion Joe Warren at The Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney announced on Wednesday.

In 2011, Curran won a chance to fight for the lightweight crown but fell in a unanimous decision to Eddie Alvarez. Afterward, he dropped weight to move into the lower division and steamrolled the tournament field with finish wins over Luis Palomino and Marlon Sandro, as well as a decision over Ronnie Mann, to advance to a title bout.

Since then, Curran (16-4) has been waiting on the sidelines for his chance, as first, Warren (7-2) tried his hand at becoming a two-division champ but got knocked out by bantamweight Alexis Vila. And then, Curran was forced to wait as previous tournament winner Patricio "Pitbull" Freire was queued up to fight Warren first.

As it turns out, Freire suffered a hand injury that required surgery, allowing Curran to cash in his opportunity first.

This prolly works out better.

Curran beats Warren, then you get the better matchup of Curran vs Pitbull.

The only thing Curran will be beating is his meat.

Expect Patty boy to have a Joe Warren who will not go down without a fight. I. Am very excited for this fight, and very excited for Warren to do a beatdown on Curran like he did to Soto.

People don't even understand how good Pat Curran is.

I train with him on a weekly basis.

He just keeps getting better and better.
