Blood Brothers

You work hard, but you party hard-core. So it’s not entirely uncommon for your weekend to start 24 hours early with a testosterone- and tequila-soaked Thursday full of degenerate gambling, trash talk, and amateurishly applied guillotine chokes. One thing is guaranteed: There will be blood, broken bones, and battle scars.

This Thursday, though, take a break from amateur night and go see how the pros throw down when the cages come to Hard Rock Live (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood) for the Bellator Fighting Championship XXI. The main event is set to star South Florida’s Pat Curran versus Cali’s Toby Imada in a 155-pound tournament title fight. Also on the card: a heavyweight brawl between local boy Steve Banks and Oregon’s Mike “300” Hayes, plus Miami’s Luis Palomino versus Orlando’s Jose Figueroa. Make your bets. Talk some trash. Submit someone. The weekend starts now. First blood will be drawn at 7 p.m., and tickets cost $20 to $125. Call 954-797-5531, or visit
