UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Bellator 260 has lost a main-card fight.
The women’s flyweight bout between Brazilians Vanessa Porto and Ilara Joanne was called off Friday. Shortly after the conclusion of the event’s official weigh-ins, promotion officials revealed Porto did not receive proper medical clearance to compete from the commission and the fight was scrapped.
MMA Junkie subsequently was told by promotion officials that the event will continue with a four-fight main card.
Porto, 37, was the final fighter to weigh in at Thursday’s official weigh-ins and needed the towel in order to hit her mark. The fight was scheduled for a 128-pound contract weight, which was booked on short notice for both fighters.
Bellator 260 takes place Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena. The main card streams on Showtime after prelims on MMA Junkie.
