Friday’s Bellator 185 main card loses two more fights

This Friday night’s Bellator 185 fight card is in serious trouble. Two more fights have been lost and it is all happening during fight week, leaving little wiggle time to implement a fix.

First, last week, a scheduled co-main event between former Bellator light heavyweight champion Liam McGeary and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal was scrapped after Lawal sustained an injury.  He was then replaced by Bubba McDaniel.  Then McGeary was injured and the fight removed.

Now the October 20 fight card from the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut has lost two more fights on the main card.

A fight between hard-hitting Brennan Ward and David Rickels was lost just yesterday as the injury bug has infected Ward.  Also, Javier Torres sustained an injury that will force him out of a fight with Neiman Gracie.

Gracie will now fight Zak Bucia who will be making his Bellator MMA debut.  The fight slides into co-main event position.

Ryan Quinn and Marcus Surin will move their lightweight affair to the main card which will air on Spike.

The main event between former UFC fighter Gegard Mousasi and former Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko remains in tact. (Fingers crossed)
