There will be no last-minute opponent for Roy Nelson at Bellator 200.

Nelson’s opponent Mirko Cro Cop was forced out of his planned heavyweight headliner with Nelson due to knee injuries and surgery. Bellator 200 takes place at The SSE Arena in London. Nelson and Cro Cop were fighting for the No. 1 alternate slot in Bellator’s yearlong heavyweight grand prix. And though officially initially said they hoped to find a replacement on short notice, they’ve since confirmed the bout has been scrapped.
