Eddie AlvarezBellator has announced the complete fight card for Saturday’s Bellator 39 event, including a headlining title fight between lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez and season two tournament winner Pat Curran.

The MTV2-televised main card also features former champ Lyman Good vs. Rick Hawn in a welterweight tournament semifinal, a lightweight tourney semifinal between Toby Imada and Patricky “Pitbull” Freire, and the Bellator debut of UFC vet Ben Saunders vs. Matt Lee.

I won’t be happy with anything less than complete and total domination.”
