Bellator 115 goes down tonight in Reno, Nevada live and free on Spike TV. In the main event of the evening, former UFC veteran Cheick Kongo takes on the undefeated Russian champion, Vitaly Minakov, for the Bellator Heavyweight championship.
The card has gone through a major reshuffling in the past two days as two bouts were removed from the card and one was added. Jeremy Kimball, who was scheduled to fight Dan Cramer tonight, failed to make weight for the Middleweight tournament semi-final, and the bout was scratched. Andrey Koreshkov, who was scheduled to fight Sam Oropeza, is battling the flu, and therefore their bout must be rescheduled as well.
In a strange set of circumstances, one of the bouts that was scratched from last weekend’s World Series of Fighting 9 card was rescheduled for tonight’s Bellator card in order to have 9 fights on slate.
In the video above, you can catch all five of the Bellator 115 prelims streaming live at 7:00 pm ET/4:00 pm PT.
