Report: Eric Prindle Wins $100K Bellator Tournament, Will Challenge Cole Konrad

Mauro Ranallo is reporting on Twitter that not only has Thiago Santos missed weight and forced the cancellation of his Bellator 62 heavyweight tournament final bout against Eric Prindle, but Prindle has been declared the tournament winner. If this report is correct, Prindle will win the $100,000 Bellator tournament prize and get a shot at champion Cole Konrad's title.

It's been a long and fairly crooked path to get to this point. Prindle initially met Santos at Bellator 59 in the heavyweight tournament final. That bout was a No Contest after Prindle ate a kick to the groin from Santos at 1:24 of the round 1 and wasn't able to continue. The pair were then scheduled to meet at Bellator 61 last Friday. Unfortunately, Bellator pushed the bout back a week because Prindle was having "flu-like symptoms."

Here's Mauro's tweet:

I can now confirm that Eric Prindle has been awarded the 100k and Bellator Heavyweight title shot after Thiago Santos missed weight.
