Bellator 145-Pound Champion Joe Warren Vs. Pat Curran Set For March 9

Bellator Featherweight Champion Joe Warren will defend his title against No. 1 contender Pat Curran on Friday, March 9, in Hammond, IN, according to the Chicago Tribune's Matt Erickson. The fight will take place in Bellator's second event of their sixth season at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino.

Warren (7-2) has yet to defend the title he won in a comeback victory over Joe Soto in September 2010. Since then, he picked up a controversial split decision over Marcos Galvao in a catchweight fight and was knocked out in 64 seconds by Alexis Vila in his bantamweight tournament debut last September.

Curran (16-4) won Bellator's most recent 145-pound tournament, defeating Marlon Sandro by second round KO in August. It was his second tournament victory for the 24-year-old as he won their 2010 lightweight tournament, dropping a competitive unanimous decision to then-champion Eddie Alvarez. He is the cousin of UFC/WEC veteran Jeff Curran.

Bellator's next season of action kicks off on Friday, March 2, on MTV2.
