Combat Rewind, April 17: Start of Pat Curran vs. Daniel Straus, end of Strikeforce on CBS

There’s “Flashback Friday” and “Throwback Thursday” (and Tuesday, too, if you want). But at MMA Junkie, we figured why not expand that to every day?

“Combat Rewind” brings you some of combat sports’ best highlights from every calendar day of the year. It’s a look back at history, courtesy of the UFC Fight Pass archives, featuring stellar finishes and classic moments in MMA and beyond on their anniversaries.

Today’s highlight include the launch of a career trilogy between Pat Curran and Daniel Straus four years before they would resume the series in the Bellator cage, as well as the infamous “Strikeforce: Nashville” brawl that signaled the end of Striekforce’s run on network television.

So kick back and relive the following bits of greatness in the video above:
