Mike Corey has been selected as an injury replacement for Bellator’s season six featherweight tournament, as Corey takes the place of Wagnney Fabiano. The tourney will begin at Bellator 60 on March 9 from Hammond, Indiana.
The four quarterfinal round matches in the tournament, including Corey vs. Ronnie Mann, will be shown live on the main card on MTV2. The prelims will stream on Spike.com. MMAjunkie.com confirmed the change in fights.
Corey (11-2-1) has fought just once in Bellator going to a draw with Chris Horodecki. He was expected to meet Bobby Reardanz on the Bellator 60 card, but was moved into the tourney field when Fabiano (14-3) went down with the injury.
Along with the quarterfinals, Joe Warren will defend his Bellator featherweight title in the main event against Pat Curran.
