Pat Curran vs. Daniel Straus featherweight title fight scheduled for April

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting
Pat Curran's next Bellator featherweight title defense is set.

The promotion announced Wednesday that Curran will defend the strap against Daniel Straus on April 4 at Ovation Hall inside Revel Resort & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

The 25-year-old Curran (18-4) has won his last five fights in a row. He most recently defeated Patricio Freire via split decision in Bellator's Spike TV debut last month.

Straus (21-4) beat Marlon Sandro in the finals of Bellator's season six lightweight tournament to earn a shot at the title. Since then, he also picked up a win over veteran Alvin Robinson.

The card will also feature top 125-pounder Jessica Eye (9-1) vs. Munah Holland (5-2). Eye's most recent win over former 115-pound champion Zoila Frausto Gurgel in December extended her winning streak to seven in a row.

Lyman Good vs. Dante Rivera and former UFC fighter Tom DeBlass vs. Carlos Brooks will also take place on the card, which will air on Spike TV and SpikeTV.com.
