BFC Evolves the Tourney
Bellator isn't getting away from their tournament model, but they are adjusting it. In short, Bellator tournament champions no longer have to re-enter the tournament system to earn subsequent title shots. Bellator officials exclusively tell MMA Fighting the tournament still earns the winner a guaranteed title shot and $100,000 extra in earnings, but also something more now. Once a fighter wins a tournament, they'll forever belong to a pool of fighters who can win a series of fights outside of the tournament that also lead to a title shot.

Eddie Alvarez to Will Brooks: I want to fight you ‘because I think you’re the easier guy, and I’m trying to get out of here easier’
In theory, Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez's next (and likely final) fight for the promotion, seems to be a foregone conclusion. When recent tourney winner Will Brooks seized a surprising split decision over Michael Chandler at Bellator 120, he also captured the newly created Bellator interim lightweight strap, and in doing so, appeared to jump the line in the Alvarez sweepstakes.

Calf Injury Knocks Pat Curran Out of June 6 Title Defense at Bellator 121
Bellator MMA featherweight champion Pat Curran will not defend his title as expected next month. Bellator officials Wednesday announced that Curran sustained a severe right calf strain in training and has been forced to withdraw from a planned rematch with Patricio Freire at Bellator 121. “I’ve been training incredibly hard for this fight by pushing myself to my absolute limits in training,” Curran stated in a release. “Unfortunately, during some conditioning drills, I suffered a bad calf strain that has halted my training for one of the biggest fights of my career. I have my sights set on getting back into the cage as soon as possible, with July in mind, but I want to be 100 percent healthy heading into that cage to smash ‘Pitbull.’”
