New Fight Card For Bellator 185 This Friday After Injuries Scrap Two Bouts

Brennan Ward was expected to face David Rickels in the new co-main event from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, but an injury to Ward cancelled the welterweight showdown.

Neiman Gracie will now meet Zak Bucia in the co-headliner to Gegard Mousasi and Alexander Shlemenko. Javier Torres was the scheduled opponent for Gracie, but he was injured and forced out, as well.
