Marcos Galvao-Eduardo Dantas Off Bellator 150 Card

0

The planned rematch between bantamweight champion Marcos Galvao and Eduardo Dantas will have to wait a little longer – again.

Officials announced on Thursday that Galvao has been battling an illness and will not make the planned Bellator 150 main event title fight vs. Dantas. Instead, Cheick Kongo vs. Vinicius Queiroz will headline the card on Spike TV.

Dantas weighed in successfully and was paid his show money. The plan is to reschedule the bout in the near future.

The changes also mean that Gaston Reyno vs. Chuka Willis will be added to the main card from the Kansas Star Arena.

Below is the updated lineup:

Bellator MMA Heavyweight Main Event: Cheick Kongo (23-10-2) vs. Vinicius Queiroz (8-3)
