Patricio “Pitbull’ Frieire (21-2) was slated for his long-awaited rematch against Pat Curran (20-5) On June 6th. Pat Curren the Current Champion reported he suffered a calf strain and was unable to compete. “I’ve been training incredibly hard for this fight by pushing myself to my absolute limits in training,” Curran said in a statement released by Bellator.“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% healthy heading into that cage to smash ‘Pitbull’.”
It seems that shortly after Bellator 121 concluded the two could begin a twitter war that is getting fans on both sides excited to see this rematch.
