Mirko Cro Cop was supposed to meet Roy Nelson in the main event.
The injury bug has struck Bellator 200 and wiped out their main event in the process. Mirko Cro Cop was supposed to make his Bellator debut in the main event against Roy Nelson, but an undisclosed injury has forced him off the card. The Bellator Middleweight title bout between Gegard Mousasi and champion Rafael Carvalho will now headline the event.
Mirko Cro Cop is injured and out of Friday’s Bellator 200 main event, sources confirm. Current plan is to bump Carvalho vs. Mousasi to main event and try to find a late replacement to fight Roy Nelson. First reported by @GarethADaviesDT.
