Bellator heavyweight Eric Prindle was set to take on heavyweight champion Cole Konrad next weekend in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
He appeared on cagejunkies.com‘s blog talk radio show to announce that he is pulling out of the fight.
Prindle was advised by Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney not to give a specific reason. All he would say is that it was his own fault.
This is very disappointing for the Bellator promotion, which handed Prindle the heavyweight tournament championship when his opponent Thiago Santos missed weight by 12Lbs. for their tournament final fight at Bellator 62.
