Alexander “Tiger” Sarnavskiy has once again seen an opponent fall out of Bellator 128 on Friday night as Derek Campos has pulled out of the fight due to an undisclosed reason and Sarnavskiy will now meet Dakota Cochrane.
The fight change was confirmed to TheMMAReport.com by Bellator officials on Monday evening and this will be one of the four fights on the main card broadcast on Spike TV.
Bellator 128 will come from the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma on Friday night and will be headlined by a bantamweight title unification bout as Eduardo Dantas meets Joe Warren.
Cochrane (17-6) will be making his Bellator debut and he has won six of his last night fights. He will enter this fight following a defeat as he was defeated by Christos Giagos in August at RFA 17.
Sarnavskiy (28-2) was initially scheduled to meet John Gunderson on this card, but Gunderson recently announced his retirement and was then booked to face Campos. He will enter this fight on a three fight winning streak and he has gone 4-2 in Bellator.
