Mirko Cro Cop Out of Bellator 200 Main Event Due to Injury
Legendary heavyweight Mirko Cro Cop has suffered an undisclosed injury that has forced him out of his upcoming main event bout against Roy Nelson at Bellator 200 in London.
Bellator officials confirmed the news on Monday following an initial report from the Telegraph in the U.K.
Cro Cop was making his promotional debut against Nelson in a fight that was supposed to serve as the alternate bout for the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix.
With Cro Cop sidelined due to injury, Bellator has shifted the middleweight title fight between Gegard Mousasi and Rafael Carvalho into the main event slot.
A welterweight showdown between Michael ‘Venom’ Page and David Rickels will now serve as the co-main event for Bellator 200 on Friday.
