Alvarez and Curran were set to tango last October, but a shoulder injury forced the challenger out of the highly anticipated scrap. Alvarez went on to post a 2ndRound TKO victory over former UFC stud Roger Huerta in a non-title affair.

Curran earned his shot at the brass ring by beating Mike Ricci, Huerta and Toby Imada, respectively, in Bellator’s lightweight tournament.

Alvarez owns an impressive 21-2 record and is widely considered one of the best 155-pounders outside of the UFC.
