After a confusing bit of nonsense last week before their Bellator 61 rematch, tomorrow's scheduled heavyweight tournament final between Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos now appears to be off. The bout was a rematch of the season 5 bout that ended when Santos landed a hard kick to the groin that left Prindle unable to continue and the bout a no contest.

Mauro Ranallo's Twitter was the first place I saw the bout canceled:

The two were supposed to fight last week but the fight was postponed a week when Bellator said Prindle was ill. Prindle went on The MMA Show and said that he was fine but that Santos was way over weight. It then was re-confirmed that Prindle was in fact ill and Bjorn Rebney said that Santos was only slightly overweight and could have made the weight.



Word is that Santos is 11 pounds over and won't be able to hit the 265 pound limit forcing a cancellation.

Wow I like Santos, but with all the time he had to cut weight. Especially the extra week, this is competely unprofessional.

It was reported by multiple sources that Santos was 17 pounds over LAST week. He only cut an additional 6 pounds?

Pathetic.

Interesting, if they do name him tourney winner.

Also, I think Prindle and Konrad train together, so wonder if they will fight one another.

As long as all the lightweights are ready to go at it, I'm good.

Can we give him a new nickname now? My vote is on Thiago "Big Fatty" Santos.

And to think that his camp said that his weight wasn't gonna be an issue

Santos' camp denies weight issue

The most disappointing thing is he had 7 more days to cut the weight. you always hear about guys cutting 5-10 pounds in a day and this dude couldn't cut, what was it 16 lbs, in a week?
