——————————————————————-

A lightweight title fight between Eddie Alvarez and Pat Curran will headline Bellator 39. The event takes place on April 2nd at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. This fight was supposed to take place last season, but an injury to Curran forced him to withdraw from the fight.

Eddie Alvarez is considered to be one of the most-feared strikers in the 155-pound division, but five out of his last six victories have come by way of submission. He became the Bellator’s first lightweight champion by winning season one’s tournament, defeating Greg Loughran, Eric Reynolds, and Toby Imada. Alvarez has since won two “super fights” over Josh Neer and Roger Huerta, but they were both non-title fights.

Pat Curran earned a shot at Bellator gold by winning season two’s lightweight tournament. He meet Mike Ricci in the quarterfinals, earning a stunning knockout victory over the Tristar Vale Tudo product. Curran then went on to upset heavy favorite Roger Huerta with a unanimous decision victory, and earned a spot against Toby Imada in the finals. Although many people thought Imada did enough to win a close decision, the judes gave Curran the split decision victory.
