Bellator 121 will take place June 6, 2014, inside the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma, and be headlined by Pat Curran vs. Patricio Freire 2.
"Pitbull gets his crack at the title after winning the season nine tournament by defeating Justin Wilcox by first round technical knockout. Curran recently won his title back from Daniel Straus earlier this season in an amazing fight where he made a daring fifth-round blitz that ended in a rear naked choke submission victory in the dying seconds of the fight.
Curran will face another familiar foe here after defeating him by decision in their first fight.
"Curran and Pitbull are two of the best featherweights on the planet," Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney said in today's press release. "Curran's win in their first fight last year makes for a great second title fight. This should be fireworks on June 6th. We always look to kick off our Summer Series strong, and this main event will be a fantastic anchor to what will be an incredible night of fights."
The event will broadcast live at 9 p.m. ET on Spike TV. The preliminary card will be streamed live and free on Spike.com beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
