The fighter was supposed to compete against Saul Rogers on the preliminary card, but Rogers has also been pulled from the event since Bellator MMA officials couldn’t find a suitable replacement in time.
Rogers took to Instgram to issue a statement on the now canceled fight:
There is no word at this time if the bout will simply get rescheduled or if the fighters will go their separate ways.
This is the second fight that has been pulled from the card, as the main event bout between Roy Nelson and Mirko Cro Cop was canned due to a Cro Cop injury.
Bellator 200 takes place on Friday, May 25 from the SSE Arena in London, England with Rafael Carvalho and Gegard Mousasi headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs via tape delay on the Paramount Network.
