Seth ‘The Silverback’ Petruzelli, pulled out from Bellator 68 at the last minute, due to illness.

The scheduled 230-lbs catchweight bout between and Carmelo Marrero was cancelled at the last minute. The reason for the cancellation is because Petruzelli is sick.

Petruzelli’s doctor did not clear him to fight after hearing a “weezing and fluid” in his lungs. He seeked an opinion from a second doctor, who made the same findings.

Petruzelli posted the bad news in his Twitter account (@silverbackseth), an hour before the main card began and said:

“Guys, I have unbelievable news. The doc wouldn’t clear me to fight. I have been feeling sick for past week but haven’t told anyone. When the doc checked me he said he heard weezing and fluid in my lungs. Got a 2nd doc for another opinion and he said same thing. I am so sorry…I feel like I’m in a nightmare.”

The bout would have been his second bout since making a debut in 48, where he defeated Ricco Rodriguez via a knock out in the first round.
