    bellator fw division is great,they have talented guys like bubba,yamauchi,jc neves(30-0),caldwell,guerreiro,weichel AND the big 3 curran-pitbull-straus
    curran/pitbull fights were close,curran beat straus early and then lost UD in a rematch,only to reclaim his title in rubber match. Pitbull beat straus via ud in 2011
    i think straus is wayy underrated,even when he beat curran in decisive fashion,he didnt get any respect and bellator gave curran rematch that he didnt deserve imo (i wasnt mad cuz curran is one of my fav fighters lol). now straus gets his shot after he tko'd strikeforce vet and bellator tourney runner up justin willcox. pitbull is agresive striker and bjj black belt with great tdd and has good td himself. straus has underrated striking,good wrestling and has great cardio. it is going to be good fight 4 sure. i pick pitbull via ud or late tko.thoughts?

    Going to be a fun scrap for sure, i got pitbull because he is one of my favs and i also think he is the overall better fighter. Dont get me wrong, not sleeping on straus and the dudes hands look legit against wilcox but i feel that pitbull has the better hands. Better kicks, and the tdd to keep it standing.. one thing i give straus is a slight cardio advantage seeing that pitbull seems to be a blown up bw... he is carrying too much uneeded muscle imo. Even then. Pitbull is still a beast and will win a good close fight.

    Awesome fight, but I'm gonna go with Straus. Straus has looked unstoppable lately. He dominated curran twice. I think his standup has finally reached top level. Plus he has the wrestling game to fall back on. I think Straus is prob the best FW outside the UFC and he's gonna prove it Friday.

    I'm really looking forward to this fight. I think Pitbull is the better fighter and will win but I'm looking forward to see how Straus approaches this rematch. His striking is better than it's ever been and I wonder if he can get it to the ground. Can't wait!

    Should be a good fight and Pitbull should win again.

    I'm taking Straus. Guy is the best FW outside the UFC in my opinion.

    There's one there you're right about. Bellator's FW division is legit. I can see Straus, Pitbull, and Curran all making a splash in the UFC. I don't know about beating Aldo but Aldo seems pretty unbeatable.

    i just interviewed straus ill post the link but after u hear the guys story its hard not too root for him hes made mistakes but was homeless going into the sport really cool guy he predicted a third round finish i dont see tht but i see him in a war of scrambles surviving pitbulls strikes and getting a decision daniel straus has a chip on his shoulders i think hes gonna finally get bellators respect ( they will probably make him fight curran again lol)

    I see Pitbull winning by via decision but I don't think it'll be easy Straus is tough!
