In case you missed the news on Monday, Mirko Cro Cop is injured and out of the Bellator 200 main event vs. Roy Nelson in London, England. That fight would’ve been to determine who would serve as the alternate in the heavyweight Grand Prix, but now that’s not happening. Instead, the main event is the middleweight championship bout between current beltholder Rafael Carvalho and challenger Gegard Mousasi.
Moving up to co-main event status is the return of welterweight striker Michael Page, as “MVP” takes on lightweight veteran David Rickels, who is moving up to 170. UK reality TV star Aaron Chalmers also appears at The SSE Arena, as he fights Ash Griffiths. The fifth main card bout will be announced shortly.
Unfortunately, Bellator is tape-delayed in the US, but for those in the UK can watch it LIVE on 5Spike at 9 PM local time. Even more irritating for US viewers is that the prelims are being streamed live, but not the actual main card.
Anyway. here’s the fight lineup for Bellator 200:
