He;s the one that ko'd Nunes, right? If so that was pretty impressive, I'd say he def deserves the next shot. Thing is, if Curan wins the title back, does Strauss get a rematch as well??

I think it would be cool if the tournament winners fought the champion. Bellator should think about doing it. They could even have a slogan like 'where title shots are earned, not given'

I think this is only happening because Pit bull is out for a lil bit but more because Straus is all that fan friendly. He's an acquired taste while Curran was a good face for them at FW so they want to put the belt back on him I think.

He really struggled with the wrestling last time so he is definitely going to have his plate full.

Well Frodo was actually suppose to be before Pitbull since he won the tourney in season 8 but it was just reported that Frodo has Visa issues which helps explain that situation.
