Next weeks Bellator 227 card took a hit because a bout between Brian Moore and Toby Misech has been pulled from the event.
An injury suffered by Moore is the reason behind his withdrawal from the card, while MMA Fighting is reporting that Misech was pulled from the card because a replacement opponent wasn’t sought out by Bellator officials.
Moore commented on the matter via Instagram:
Unfortunately I have been forced out of my scheduled fight in Dublin with injury. Apologies to Bellator fight fans and my own loyal bunch of supporters who were excited for this. I am obviously disappointed - but it's the game we're in. I'm working diligently on recovery - I will be back before the year end to make it right to you all ------ When have I been down and not come back stronger!? Anyway - this is my team's night. Join me in the @3arenadublin and let's get behind our own! ---- Hit me up here for tickets or visit @tmie ---- Thank you to @bellatormma for being excellent to work with as always ----
