Bellator’s Middleweight and Heavyweight Title Fights Swap Events

By FCF Staff

Bellator has announced two significant changes to its upcoming schedule, as upcoming middleweight and heavyweight title fights have swapped events. Middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko was originally set to battle Doug Marshall at Bellator 108 on November 15th, but the fight has been moved to Bellator 109 on November 22nd.

As a result, the heavyweight bout between champion Alexander Volkov and Vitaly Minakov has been transferred to Bellator 108. The reason for the change wasn’t disclosed by the promotion, other than mentioning that Shlemenko participated in a “grueling” title defense versus Brett Cooper on September 7th.

The November 22nd event will take place at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and the November 15th card will be hosted by the Revel in Atlantic City. Both cards will be broadcast live on SPIKE.

Here are the updated Bellator 108 and 109 cards.
