Bellator 48 Video: Pat Curran KO's Marlon Sandro
Pat Curran is for real...
In the night's main event, Bellator veteran Pat Curran was up against imposing Brazilian, former Sengoku champion Marlon Sandro. Both fighters were hungry for victory, as the winner would earn a guaranteed title shot for the Bellator Featherweight World Championship.
Sandro came out looking to push the pace, and seemed to control Round 1. Round 2 began with both competitors much more aggressive, and late into the round Curran connected with a devastating, highlight-reel roundhouse kick to the head of Sandro that left the Brazilian on his back.
Curran finished with hammerfists, and in the process earned a $100,000 payday and a future title shot for the Bellator Featherweight title.
