    Shahbulat Shamhalaev Replaces Injured Daniel Straus, Meets Pat Curran at Bellator 95

    Shahbulat Shamhalaev will return to the cage on April 4, when the Season 7 tournament winner takes on reigning featherweight champion Pat Curran at Bellator 95.

    Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney announced the booking Wednesday. Bellator 95 takes place at the Revel in Atlantic City, N.J., and was initially supposed to be headlined by a rematch between Curran and Season 6 tournament winner Daniel Straus. However, Straus was recently forced to withdraw from the title bout due to a broken hand.

    Shamhalaev, 29, has gone 10-0-1 in his last 11 fights, finishing Cody Bollinger and Mike Richman with violent, first-round knockouts to advance to the Season 7 finals against Rad Martinez. That pairing was twice delayed, however, and was forced to take place in Season 8 at Bellator 90, where Shamhalaev stopped Martinez in the second round.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    This should be a war. Shamhalaev is a beast but Curran is as well and has alot of experience.
