When Bellator 106 moved from PPV to Spike TV, the heavyweight tournament final (and main card fight) between Cheick Kongo and Vinicius Queiroz was moved from the November 2nd show to Bellator 107's November 8th main event in Thackerville, Oklahoma. It didn't take long for that plan to fall apart, as MMA Fighting confirms Queiroz is out of the bout with an injury:
"I was really excited to fight Kongo, but I injured my knee and won't be able to fight now," Queiroz told MMAFighting.com's Guilherme Cruz.
Bellator announced Kongo/Queiroz as the main event on Friday and by Saturday the fight was already scrapped.
The winner of this tournament final will get a title shot against the winner of champion Alexander Volkov vs. Vitaly Minakov next year. As for Bellator 107, there's no word from Bellator officials on the fight officially being canceled, thus no news on a new(er) main event, and right now the only significant fights on the card are the bantamweight (Joe Warren/Travis Marx) and middleweight (Mikkel Parlo/Brennan Ward) tournament finals.
