A knee injury has forced Vinicius Spartan out of his heavyweight tournament final bout against Cheick Kongo at Bellator 107, and replacing him in the bout will be Peter Graham.
Sources confirmed the fight booking with TheMMAReport.com on Tuesday evening.
Bellator 107 takes place on November 8th from the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma and will also feature the bantamweight tournament final between Joe Warren and Travis Marx.
Graham (10-5) made his Bellator debut earlier this month as he defeated Eric Prindle by unanimous decision. It was his ninth straight victory and was the first time he did not win a fight by knockout.
Kongo (19-8) defeated Mark Godbeer in the semifinals by TKO in the second round to claim his spot in the tournament final. Since signing with Bellator, Kongo has stated he wants to prove he is the best and this is another opportunity to prove this.
The current Bellator 107 fight card is below and the complete fight card will be announced shortly by Bellator.
Cheick Kongo (19-8) vs. Peter Graham (10-5) – HW Tournament Final
