The summer of injuries has now touched Bellator Fighting Championships as well.

Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran has been forced out of his scheduled title fight against Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire for next weekend’s Bellator 73 show.

Curran suffered a broken orbital bone while sparring for the fight, and the injury will likely sideline him for several months.

According to the report from ESPN, Bellator will now bump up the bantamweight tournament finals between Marcos Galvao and Luis Nogueira to the main event slot.

That's too bad, Patricio Pitbull is easily one of the best unknown talents. I wanted him to shine and finally get that title especially after the fishy Joe Warren fight, guess he's gotta wait.

That is a pretty gnarly injury to suffer during camp.

According to Curran's Twitter, it was his second-to-last sparring session this, as MMAJunkie reports, happened:


Curran's cousin and trainer, Jeff Curran, said the Bellator champ was suffering from a knee problem and had decided to focus on boxing rather than muay Thai in the final week of training camp. During a sparring session at his training home near Chicago with a boxer he'd worked with for the past eight weeks, he "ducked into a punch" and suffered a broken orbital.

I agree with this wholeheartedly. Patrico and Patricky Pitbull are awesome. Patricio has been waiting for his title fight for a long ass time now.

There are a bunch of the Pitbull Brother's fights in the PG video section, guess I'll have to go rewatch those.
