Daniel Straus is back in title contention!

Former Bellator Featherweight Champion, Daniel Straus was a man on a mission last week in Bellator 127 after delivering a devastating knockout to season nine tournament finalist, Justin Wilcox. This main event bout lasted for only 50 seconds, and with a impressive win, Straus is back in title contention. 

Daniel Straus capitalized Wilcox after he charged in, attempting to throw a right punch. Straus stepped back away from Wilcox, and then threw a monstrous left punch that dropped Wilcox. He followed up with a series of punches ending the fight. 

After his knockout win, Straus is now 9-2 in the Bellator cage. Prior to this fight, he had two great back and forth champion bouts against former Bellator Featherweight Champion, Pat Curran, who recently lost his title to PatrĂ­cio Freire last month. Things are interesting now, after his win over Wilcox, will Daniel Straus get a rematch with Pat Curran, or will he get a chance to recapture the gold with going against PatrĂ­cio Freire?

During Bellator 127, which took place at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California live on Spike TV, Bellator posted my tweet in regards to Daniel Straus' win. I tweeted, "@DanielStraus striking is on another level! Working his way back to a title shot #nextchamp #Bellator127". The image is found above. Can't wait to see Dainel Straus back in action!
