The big Bellator 172 fight tonight featuring Fedor vs. Mitrione — CANCELLED!!

With football season over I am really struggling for sports to care about. But there is MMA, and I was all psyched to check out the Twitter feed for news of tonight’s much-hyped Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Mitrione main event of Bellator 172 happening now in San Jose. This was going to be Fedor’s first fight on American soil since 2011.

Except now the whole night is in the sink after Mitrione pulled out of the fight due to ill health. So the fight has been cancelled. Instead, tonight’s main event will be Josh Thomson vs. Patricky “Pitbull” Freire.

I dunno about you, but if I had paid good money for tickets for this Bellator 172, I’d be pretty choked.
