The season seven lightweight tournament final was scheduled to headline Bellator 92 on March 7th in California, but Marcin Held suffered an undisclosed injury and his fight with Dave Jansen is off the card.
The news of the injury was initially reported by MMA Junkie and TheMMAReport.com has been able to confirm the story with sources.
Held (15-2) was originally scheduled to face Jansen at Bellator 84 but the fight was canceled on the day of the fight. The commission would not allow Held to enter the casino since he is under 21 years old, even though he weighed in at the casino the previous day.
Jansen (19-2) has won five fights in a row, with all of those wins coming in Bellator. He defeated Magomed Saadulaev and Ricardo Tirloni to advance to the finals and three of his five victories in Bellator have come by submission.
With this fight being off the Bellator 92 fight card, the organization will have to find a new headliner fight and that should be announced in the coming days.
