Seth Petruzelli is a late scratch from tonight's Bellator 68 main event.

The fighter today announced via Twitter that a doctor wouldn't clear him to fight because he "heard weezing and fluid in my lungs."

A second doctor concurred, Petruzelli (14-6 MMA, 1-0 BFC) said, and his 230-pound catchweight fight with Carmelo Marrero (14-5-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) has been pulled from the card.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) spoke to Bellator officials who confirmed the fight's removal from the main-card broadcast, which airs on MTV2 from Palladium Ballroom in Caesars Atlantic City in New Jersey.

According to an official, lightweights Marcin Held (12-2 MMA, 1-1 BFC) vs. Derrick Kennington (6-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC) have been promoted to the vacant televised slot.

anyone else confused on why Straus/Sandro was not 5 rounds?

I thought tournament finals were 5 rounds? Or am I thinking of that wrong?

I think only title fights are 5 rounds in bellator but i could be wrong. The first tournaments were 5 rounds because they were crowning champions.
