Bellator Drops Three More Bouts From This Weekend’s Bellator 106 Event

 

A once promising fight card, that was to serve as Bellator’s debut into the pay-per-view market, has fell apart at the seams and is no longer the “stacked” event once billed.

With news that Tito Ortiz is injured, the promotion opted to remove Rampage Jackson from the main event entirely and postpone his promotional debut to a later date.

The Ortiz injury created a ripple effect that has now caused a re-shaping of the entire fight card, once thought to be a well put together show.

Now free on SPIKE TV, promotion officials have decided to remove Cheick Kongo vs. Vinicius Queiroz, Terry Etim vs. Patrick Cenoble and Karo Parisyan vs. Cristiano “Soldier Boy” Souza from the fight night entirely.

The remaining bouts left after this barrage of failure is as follows:

MAIN CARD: (Spike TV, 9 p.m. ET)
Champ Michael Chandler vs. Eddie Alvarez – for lightweight title
Muhammed Lawal vs. Emanuel Newton – for interim light heavyweight title
Champ Pat Curran vs. Daniel Straus – for featherweight title
Mike Bronzoulis vs. Joe Riggs – “Fight Master” tourney final
Mike Richman vs. Akop Stepanyan

PRELIMINARY CARD: (Spike.com, 7 p.m. ET)
Jesse Juarez vs. Joe Williams
Brandon Halsey vs. Hector Ramirez
Mike Guymon vs. Aaron Miller
Joe Camacho vs. Cleber Luciano
Darren Smith vs. Josh Smith

    I understand why they removed them because they were banking on the money from the PPV to help pay salaries, but that is just messed up for the other 3 fights that were dropped, they have already had their training camps, which means they have to pay their training partners and everything else. This is jacked up.
