Bellator 145: Patricio “Pitbull”-Daniel Straus 3, Will Brooks-Marcin Held Official
After news surfaced recently that Bellator 145 would feature lightweight and featherweight championship fights, the promotion has confirmed that its November 6th event will indeed see both Will Brooks and Patricio “Pitbull” Freire in action.
“Pitbull” (24-2) will be defending the featherweight belt versus Daniel Straus (23-6), which will mark the third time they’ve fought. After Freire decisioned Straus in 2011, he came from behind to submit the featherweight in their 2014 rematch.
Brooks (16-1), meanwhile, will put the lightweight title on the line versus Marcin Held (21-3). Bellator has also announced that former lightweight champ Michael Chandler (13-3) will be in action, as will be heavyweight Bobby Lashley (13-2). Their opponents have yet to be determined.
Bellator 145 will be hosted by the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, and the main card will be broadcast on SPIKE.
