Two fights scrapped from Bellator 278 lineup


It’s fight week for Bellator in Hawaii, but two bouts have been removed from Friday’s event, including the return of “Goyito” Erik Perez.

Additionally, the previously-scheduled bout between former RIZIN lightweight champion Tofiq Musayev (18-4 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) and Zach Zane (15-11 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) is off for undisclosed reasons. Zane withdrew, a promotion official confirmed to MMA Junkie after an initial report by MMA Fighting.

With the cancellations, the Bellator 278 lineup includes:

MAIN CARD (Showtime, 10 p.m. ET)
Champ Juliana Velasquez vs. Liz Carmouche – for women’s flyweight title Enrique Barzola vs. Nikita Mikhailov – bantamweight grand prix wild card Jornel Lugo vs. Danny Sabatello – bantamweight grand prix wild card Christian Edwards vs. Grant Neal Nate Andrews vs. Manny Muro

Weber Almeida vs. Fabricio Franco Scotty Hao vs. Dante Schiro Makoa Cooper vs. Blake Perry
