Bellator 95 took place on April 4, 2013 at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The event was distributed live in prime time by Spike TV.

The event was initially scheduled to feature a championship match for the Featherweight Title between Pat Curran and Daniel Straus. However, on February 26, it was announced that Straus had broken his hand and had to pull out of the fight.

On February 27, it was announced that recent tournament winner Shahbulat Shamhalaev would advance with his title shot and he faced Curran on this card.

After the fight, Curran said he's ready to go right away, and next on his plate is tournament winner Daniel Straus, who had to pull out of Thursday's fight with a hand injury, making room for fellow tourney winner Shamhalaev a little early.

Just how soon Straus can go thanks to the hand injury and some potential legal difficulty from an arrest in Florida for traffic and drug charges, though, remains to be seen.

Pat Curran vs Shahbulat Shamhalaev:

Round 1: Curran shoots a quick double and Shamhalaev sprawls. Curran ducks under, cuts the corner and locks up a lightning-fast guillotine. Shamhalaev's nearside arm is actually caught in the guillotine as well.

Despite the awkward position, the choke looks tight and Curran is just torquing the Dagestani fighter's head. Referee Keith Peterson sees the challenger go limp and immediately halts the fight.

Shamhalaev is unconscious for a moment, but upon gaining his wits, is furious to find the bout has been stopped. The beautiful submission caps Curran's second successful title defense at 2:38 of the first round
