Replacing injured fighters...
Rick Hawn and Ron Keslar have stepped in to replace the injured Matt Riddle and Mark Scanlon in Bellator's welterweight tournament. Bellator officials announced the change today, with Hawn taking on Herman Terrado and Keslar facing Luis Melo at Bellator 100 this Friday.
Bjorn Rebney stated, "We are only three weeks into our season, and it's no secret our tournaments have been hit hard with injury. With that said, it speaks to the depth we've created here to be able to add in talent like Rick Hawn and Ron Keslar less than a week before the fight. This is still an incredibly deep field of talent, and Friday should be a great night of fights."
The show takes place in Phoenix, Arizona and airs on Spike TV.
