Andrey Koreshkov off Bellator 115 with flu, Kimball-Cramer scrapped
In a major shakeup just prior to Thursday’s officials weigh-ins for Bellator 115, both tournament semifinal fights on the main card have been scrapped. The welterweight tournament semifinal bout between Andrey Koreshkov (15-1 MMA, 7-1 BMMA) and Sam Oropeza (11-2 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) has been removed from the card due to Koreshkov suffering from the flu. And Jeremy Kimball (10-4 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) was off weight enough prior to the official weigh-in event that his middleweight tourney semifinal fight with Dan Cramer (10-4 MMA, 7-2 BMMA) was cut from the event, as well. Bellator officials announced the news Thursday night and said Koreshkov and Oropeza will be rescheduled to another event. No word was given on the status of the Kimball-Cramer fight, however. With the changes, the new Bellator 115 card includes: MAIN CARD (Spike TV, 9 p.m. ET) Vitaly Minakov vs. Cheick Kongo – for heavyweight title Justin Baesman vs. Herman Terrado Kelly Anundson vs. Volkan Oezdemir Johnny Cisneros vs. Mikkel Parlo PRELIMINARY CARD (Spike.com, 7 p.m. ET) Rick Reeves vs. James Terry Josh Appelt vs. Freddie Aquitania Jason Powell vs. Sinjen Smith Benito Lopez vs. Oscar Ramirez Wow, this card got fucked.

Nunes free for Kaufman fight due to Alexis Dufresne injury for UFC on FOX 11
Earlier today, Amanda Nunes was shifted from her fight against Alexis Dufresne at UFC on FOX 11 to instead meet Sarah Kaufman at the TUF Nations Finale three days earlier. It turns out the reason Nunes was available to be pulled from one card to the other was because of an injury to Dufresne. The UFC on Thursday announced the switch, with Nunes (9-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) filling in for the injured Shayna Baszler (15-8 MMA, 0-0 UFC) against Kaufman (16-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC). The promotion did not announce a new opponent for Dufresne at the time.
