Bellator 21: Jeff Curran Crowned Lightweight Tournament Winner

The finals of Bellator’s second season tournaments got underway last night, and Jeff Curran, who had beaten pre-tournament favorite Roger Huerta, emerged as the lightweight winner after picking up a razor thin split decision victory over Toby Imada.

Curran picked up a $100,000 cheque for the victory, and now moves on to face Bellator’s season one champion Eddie Alvarez for the 155lb strap.

Meanwhile Megumi Fujii made her Bellator debut, and picked up a second round TKO victory over Sarah Schneider to extend her remarkable record to 20-0. Fujii will return to the promotion in season 3 to compete in the 115lb tournament where she’ll compete with the likes of UK star Rosi Sexton.
