Bellator’s latest card tomorrow in Budapest, Hungary, will no longer feature the bantamweight title up for grabs.

The promotion has announced that Leandro Higo came in at 139 pounds for his fight with 135 champ Eduardo Dantas. As a result, the fight has been changed to a three round, non-title affair.

Higo accepted the fight last month, after Darrion Caldwell had to withdraw from the contest.
