What was once the first pay-per-view event for Bellator, now a free event on Spike TV because Tito Ortiz was forced to pull out of his bout with Rampage Jackson due to a fractured neck. The card continues to suffer more of the same problem again, but times three. Reports are confirming that Bellator has removed three more bouts from the stacked card slated for November 2, 2013.
Cheick Kongo vs. Vinicius Queiroz, Terry Etim vs. Patrick Cenoble and Karo Parisyan vs. Cristiano “Soldier Boy” Souza have all been entirely removed from Bellator 106. Due to injuries these bouts will take place on another Bellator event on Spike TV.
However, the card still remains strong for a free event that features two championship bouts, and an exciting grudge match this weekend between King Mo and Emanuel Newton for the interim light heavyweight title.
The remaining Bellator 106 card is as follows.
