Ben Saunders Off of Bellator 47 Card
One day after Patricio “Pitbull” Friere pulled out of Bellator 47 due to injury, now Ben Saunders is forced to do the same. According to Sherdog.com, Saunders is sidelined with an injury. Saunders was never officially announced by Bellator to be on the Ontario card on July 23.
With two and a half weeks until fight night, one wonders if Bellator will be able to fill the holes in the main card which now only has the two Featherweight tournament fights. Perhaps some lucky Canadian fighters on the undercard will be bumped to the televised main card?
