Bellator 264, which is set to go down this Friday night (Aug. 13, 2021) inside Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., has lost a pair of fights. According to the promotion, a Featherweight scrap between Nekruz Mirkhojaev and James Adcock was pulled from the event because of health and safety protocols.
Furthermore, a Bantamweight fight between Danny Sabatello and Johnny Campbell was pulled after Sabatello tested positive for COVID-19, according to MMA Fighting. Winner of five straight, Sabatello was in search of his second straight win for the Viacom-owned company, while Campbell was also looking to make it two-for-two under the Bellator banner.
Both fights were expected to go down on the “Prelims.” As a result, the event will proceed with 10 bouts.
