With Vitor Belfort coming up lame and excusing himself from a scheduled October 11th scrap with Matt Lindland, "sources close to the bout" have confirmed to MMAJunkie that the wrestler/fighter/aspiring politician from Oregon will now face South Africa's Trevor Prangley at Affliction's "Day of Reckoning" show. Belfort had previously mentioned that he would fight Lindland for "a title" - presumably the WAMMA middleweight belt - but the sources don't mention if a championship will be up for grabs. The 36-year old UFC and bodogFight veteran Prangley last competed in Strikeforce's "Four Men Enter, One Man Survives" one-night tournament in November of 2007, where he won an opening round decision against Falaniko Vitale but was later upset by Jorge Santiago.
The card for "Day of Reckoning" is currently looking something like this:
Andrei Arlovski vs. Josh Barnett
Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Matt Lindland vs. Trevor Prangley
Chris Horodecki vs. Dan Lauzon
Jason High vs. Mike Pyle
