To say “Bellator 62” is marred in drama would be an understatement. The Season 5 Heavyweight Tournament Final between Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos that was supposed to headline tonight’s show was cancelled after Santos missed weight by nearly 12 astonishing pounds.
Prindle wins the 265-pound tourney by default and now advances to challenge champion Cole Konrad for his crown.
Furthermore, the scheduled bout with Cosmo Alexander and Oscar de la Parra was scrapped for undisclosed reasons.
The opening round of Bellator’s Lightweight Tournament will now serve as the card’s featured attraction.
Spike.com will stream several preliminary fights live at 7PM ET/4PM PT. MTV2 will then broadcast the main card at 8PM ET/PT.
Here are the athletes participating in tonight’s show.
