With just over a month until Bellator 205, the main card sees two major changes. The main event, which was originally scheduled to be undefeated AJ McKee Jr. versus Pat Curran is off the table, as Curran has suffered an injury. Replacing him in the 145 weight class is John Teixeira. Originally reported by MMA Junkie, the news came Monday afternoon. Teixeira is looking to break his two fight losing streak, those being his only two losses in his career. Both of his losses come by decision. His last win was at Bellator 167 against Justin Lawrence.
Another change that came this week was for another main card fight which was scheduled to be between Patricky Freire and Goiti Yamauchi. ESPN reported last Friday that due to Yamauchi’s injury, he would be replaced by Roger Huerta. Similar to Teixeira, Huerta is coming off a loss at Bellator 196, when Benson Henderson beat him in the second round via submission. This will be his second bout in Bellator since his return to the promotion. He fought for Bellator in the early days, facing Eddie Alvarez at Bellator 33.
