Disaster struck Bellator on Saturday, as a fight day hospitalization to Matt Mitrione resulted in the cancellation of Bellator 172’s headlining bout between Mitrione and heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko just hours before the show was slated to kick off in San Jose, Calif.

As a result, Emelianenko was removed from the card and a lightweight contest between Josh Thomson and Patricky Freire was upgraded into Bellator 172’s main event.

Check out reaction to the disappointing news below.

My fault on the “after party” tweet. The person who does my fight day tweets didn’t know I was in the hospital. Innocent mistake.
