Bellator 115 Loses Two Semifinal Bouts
By FCF Staff
Although the headliner for Friday’s Bellator 115 card remains intact, the Reno bound event has lost two scheduled bouts.
The promotion has announced that Sam Oropeza will no longer fight Andrey Koreshkov tomorrow night, due to the fact the latter is suffering from the flu. The welterweight tourney semifinal will be rebooked for another event.
In addition, Jeremy Kimball failed to make weight for his middleweight semifinal bout with Dan Cramer, and as a result, that fight has also been scratched.
In the main event, heavyweight champion Vitaly Minakov will take on UFC vet Cheick Kongo.
