Pat Curran out with broken orbital

Quote:
A sparring injury has forced Pat Curran (17-4 MMA, 7-1 BFC) to withdraw from his first scheduled title defense against Patricio "Pitbull" Freire (17-1 MMA, 5-1 BFC) at Bellator 73.

A Bellator official on Tuesday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that it hasn't been decided whether Freire will remain on the card, and at this time, a search for a replacement is underway. ESPN first reported the injury withdrawal.

Bellator 73 takes place Aug. 24 at Harrah's Tunica Hotel and Casino in Mississippi. The night's main card airs on MTV2 (and in high-definition on EPIX) following prelims on Spike.com.

Curran's cousin and trainer, Jeff Curran, said the Bellator champ was suffering from a knee problem and had decided to focus on boxing rather than muay Thai in the final week of training camp. During a sparring session at his training home near Chicago with a boxer he'd worked with for the past eight weeks, he "ducked into a punch" and suffered a broken orbital.

Jeff Curran estimated it would be approximately three months before his cousin is ready to fight. He said the knee problem did not require surgery and was the result of the typical "wear and tear" during a fight camp.

Pat Curran knocked out Joe Warren this past March to become the Bellator featherweight champion. Since dropping to 145 pounds from lightweight, he is 4-0 in the tournament-based promotion.

Freire earned a title shot against Curran by winning the Season 4 featherweight tournament. The man he bested in the finals, Daniel Straus (20-4 MMA, 5-1 BFC), also earned a title shot by winning the Season 6 competition.

This is just frustrating. Is it common for fighters to spar without protection?

I've never sparred with head gear on. I find it annoying cos it limits your vision.

Honestly I think these guys are sparring with 4oz gloves and that's the issue.

12 oz gloves are goood but then you can't grapple with them. It's a bit of a catch 22.
