Bellator 123 completed their event in Connecticut by crowning a new featherweight champion.
Patricio Pitbull defeated Pat Curran in a well fought, 25-minute battle for the Bellator championship. The first couple rounds were razor thin, but Pitbull landed enough power strikes in the final three frames to separate himself en route to a decision win.
The four fights that preceded the main event were all finished. None more impressive than a walking away KO by a returning Tamdan McCrory. Bleacher Report had full coverage of the main card.
