Bellator 112 goes down tomorrow night in Hammond, Indiana. The main event of the evening features the Featherweight title rubber match between champion Daniel Straus and former champion Pat Curran.
Bellator was given a lot of flak for giving Curran an immediate rematch while other Featherweight tournament winners were waiting for their shot. Back at Bellator 106, then champion, Pat Curran was handily defeated by Straus by unanimous decision. Many expected Curran to be sent to the back of the pecking order as Patricio Pitbull was waiting for his title shot.
Today, the fighters hit the scales and Daniel Straus missed weight by one half pound putting the title bout in danger. Straus had two additional hours to cut the half pound and successfully made weight, so the title fight is on.
The rest of the card features the season 10 Welterweight tournament. The tournament was originally set to feature Joe Riggs and War Machine, but both men were forced out of the tournament due to injury
