Liam McGeary injured, fight vs. Bubba McDaniel scratched from next week's Bellator 185


Liam McGeary just can’t catch a break.

After losing out on a high-profile fight with Muhammad Lawal on short notice, McGeary (12-2 MMA, 9-2 BMMA) has suffered an injury of his own and will not be able to compete at Bellator 185 next week. His fight against replacement opponent Bubba McDaniel (28-10 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) has been removed from the card.

The exact nature of McGeary’s injury is unknown, but it’s severe enough that the former Bellator light heavyweight champion won’t be able to fight, MMAjunkie today verified with a Bellator official.

Bellator 185 takes place Oct. 20 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The main card airs on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie.

McDaniel will be booked for a future Bellator card, though it’s unlikely he still will fight McGeary, who he was moving up from the middleweight division to take on in a short-notice situation.

With the scratch, the latest Bellator 185 card now includes:

MAIN CARD (9 p.m. ET, Spike)

  • Gegard Mousasi vs. Alexander Shlemenko
  • David Rickels vs. Brennan Ward
  • Heather Hardy vs. Kristina Williams
  • Neiman Gracie vs. Javier Torres
  • Ana Julaton vs. Lisa Blaine

PRELIMINARY CARD (MMAjunkie)

  • Ryan Quinn vs. Marcus Surin
  • Steve Skrzat vs. Costello Van Steenis
  • Alec Hooben vs. Jordan Young
