With featherweight champ Pat Curran exiting “Bellator 73” stage left with a broken orbital bone, Bellator Fighting Championships has opted to pull opponent Patricio “Pitbull” Freire from the fight card altogether.
Instead of locating a substitute to face Pitbull, the promotion has decided to bump the Heavyweight Tournament finals between Attila Vegh and Travis Wiuff into the event’s top spot.
The Bantamweight Tournament finale with Marcos Galvao and Luis Nogueira serves as the night’s co-main attraction.
Harrah’s in Tunica Resorts, Mississippi hosts this Friday’s festivities.
Spike.com will stream the prelims live beginning at 7PM ET/4PM PT. MTV2 will then broadcast the main card at 8PM ET/PT.
However, fans can also stream the entire event live right here on 5thRound.com!
