It was the worst kind of training injury, at just about the worst possible time.

Less than two weeks before he was to defend his Bellator featherweight title for the first time, champion Pat Curran (17-4 MMA, 7-1 BFC) suffered a "freak accident" while sparring. And just like that, his title fight against Patricio "Pitbull" Freire (17-1 MMA, 5-1 BFC).

The broken orbital bone will keep Curran out of action for the rest of the calendar year, but he hopes the first part of 2013 sees his return.
