The confidence went quickly when Straus knocked Pitbull close to unconscious in the second round, nearly finishing the fight. But Pitbull seems to have a way of coming back from huge deficits.
With two minutes remaining, after taking a battering, Pitbull took Straus’s back, threatening an incredible comeback to finish the fight. But Straus was able to survive.
The last minute of the fight was a bloody mix of punches in a phonebooth, proving the incredible heart that both fighters have!
In the end, there is a new Bellator Featherweight Champion, by unanimous decision – Daniel Straus!
Note: Daniel Straus said he broke his hand in the first round.
