Bellator 253: One Fight Added And Two Scrapped

Tomorrow night’s Bellator 253 card is still on, but it is going to be moving on with three changes to the card.

My MMA News reports that a pair of fights pitting Lance Gibson Jr. against Shane Kruchten and Ricardo Seixas against Marcus Surin were canceled after the Mohegan Tribe Department Of Athletic Regulation didn’t give either Kruchten or Surin clearance to compete on the card.

Also, Jason Markland has replaced Mark Glover against Sullivan Cauley according to MMA Junkie, but no reason has been given for Glover’s withdrawal at this time.

All three of those changes affected the preliminary card, when has gone from eight fights in total to just six.

Bellator 253 takes place on Thursday, November 19 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut with AJ McKee and Darrion Caldwell headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on the CBS Sports Network.
