Bellator 60 Featherweight Quarterfinal Preview: Straus vs. Spoon

March 6, 2012

Daniel Straus (17-4, 3-1 BFC) is no stranger to the Bellator tournament. The Ohio native made his way to the Season 4 finals last year, where he dropped a decision to the dangerous Patricio "Pitbull" Freire. After winning a five-round fight last October in his home state, Straus is determined to make the most of his second tournament run. Find out what motivates the acclaimed wrestler and why Friday the 13th will always hold a place in his heart.

Jeremy Spoon (12-0, 2-0 BFC) may not have Straus' tournament experience, but rattling off 12 straight wins to open his career, including a three-round striking clinic in his last fight, is a sure way to gain confidence in a hurry. Hailed as one of the top prospects at 145 pounds, Spoon plans on going from prospect to contender in 2012. Hear how fighting has changed the life of Spoon.

Straus vs. Spoon is one of four featherweight quarterfinal fights taking place at Bellator 60 Friday, March 9th at 8/7c live on MTV2 and
