Bellator MMA gave the Chicagoland faithful an early candidate for fight of the year in the main event. First, Adam McDonough came back from early trouble to win a battle of positioning against Jesse Juarez. Sam Oropeza’s right found Cristiano Souza’s chin to end that bout early. Andrey Koreshkov landed a high kick that was the beginning of the end for Nah-Shon Burrell’s night, and Nathan Coy was able to use his boxing to handle the challenge of Paul Bradley. The night closed out with an instant classic rematch for the Featherweight World Title, Pat Curran regaining the title with 14 seconds left on the clock.
