Bellator's heavyweight-tournament shuffle continues.

The latest change comes as a result of an injury to semifinalist Blagoi Ivanov (5-0 MMA, 2-0 BFC). Taking his place in the final four is opening-round loser Neil Grove (11-4-1 MMA, 3-2 BFC), who now gets a second life and meets Thiago Santos (9-1 MMA, 1-0 BFC) in a semifinal matchup at Bellator 56.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the change with a source close to the fighter.

Bellator 56 takes place Oct. 29 at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. The main card airs on MTV2 (and in high-definition on EPIX), and the prelims stream on Spike.com.

Blagoi was the reason to watch the HW tourney this year. That is too bad.

Agreed. It's a shame we won't see him test his skills against Konrad.
