Bellator 60 this Friday night marks the start of the promotion’s sixth season, and boasts a pretty decent card headlined by a Featherweight title fight between champion Joe Warren and soon-to-be champion Pat Curran. If you’ll recall, Warren competed in last season’s Bantamweight tournament (since Bellator champs have plenty of free time) and was epically KTFO’d by Alexis Vila in the first round of the quarterfinals. Pat Curran won the right to challenge for the title by winning last season’s featherweight tournament, defeating the likes of Luis Palomino (via awesome Peruvian necktie), Ronnie Mann, and Marlon Sandro in the finals via head kick KO. All 2 of us Jackals that dig Bellator will surely be watching.
The rest of the main card features fights from the opening round of the Season 6 Featherweight Tournament.
