Officials announced Wednesday that McKee and Curran will fight in the main event of Bellator 205 at the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho on Sept. 21. Rafael Lovato Jr. will take on John Salter in the co-headliner.
McKee, 23, has spent his entire pro career with Bellator, winning all 11 of his bouts. His last appearance saw him defeat Justin Lawrence by unanimous decision the co-main event of Bellator 197 this past April. He is the son of 15-year MMA veteran Antonio McKee.
Curran (23-7) is currently on a three-fight win streak, though he has fought just three times since February 2015. Those victories have all been unanimous decisions against John Teixeira, Georgi Karakhanyan, and Emannuel Sanchez. The 30-year-old veteran has twice held Bellator gold at 145 pounds and been with the promotion for the past eight years.
