Patricio Freire was hoping to face Pat Curran for the Bellator featherweight championship this Friday night at Bellator 73. Curran, however, was forced out of the fight due to a broken orbital bone.
When Freire (17-1) found out the news, he pushed for a rematch with Joe Warren. Instead, Freire will be forced to the sidelines as well, according to a report by MMAjunkie.com.
The new main event for Bellator 73 will feature the season six bantamweight tournament final between Marcos Galvao and Luis Nogueira. The card airs live on MTV2.
