Marcus Sursa will be replacing Wayne Cole on this Thursday’s Bellator 20 card. Sursa will now face Eddie Sanchez in a heavyweight bout on the main card. The card will take place at the Majestic Theatre in San Antionio, Texas.
Freestyle Cage Fighting’s Aug. 8 event took place at the Osage Million Dollar Elm Casino in Tulsa, Okla. The main event featured UFC veteran David Heath (12-5) taking on IFL, Strikeforce, and EliteXC veteran Wayne Cole (14-11).
Cole was riding high coming into the bout with a first round submission win over legendary kickboxer Rick Roufus back in May. Heath was not impressed, coming into the fight with his own win, a KO over Shane Dezee at FCF’s June event. Heath upped his KO ratio to 50% with a knockout of Cole at 2:42 of the second round.
PRO MMA’s (promma.info) own resident pro fighter blogger Brian Imes (3-2) was in the co-main event, taking on MFC veteran Aron Lofton (7-2). Lofton suprised “The Human Cock Fighter” with a kneebar, ending the fight 1:33 into the first round. Be sure to read Brian’s thoughts about the fight on “The Human Cock Fighter Blog.”
All but one of the fighters successfully made weight. Donald Sanchez came in at one pound over the 146 lbs. limit for his Featherweight non-tournament bout with Johnny Eduardo.
The third week of the Bellator Fighting Championships inaugural 2009 season takes place tomorrow, Friday, April 17th, 2009 at the Lloyd Noble Arena at the University of Oklahoma beginning at 8:00PM. The event will air the following day on ESPN Deportes.
