Due to back injury, Paul Buentello will not be able to face Cole Konrad at Bellator 42 as originally anticipated. Fans need to wait longer for the superfight to take place.

Paul Buentello acquired a back injury, and will not be able to compete against Cole Konrad for Bellator 42. That said, the promotion scrapped their superfight and it will be rescheduled on a later date this year. In lieu of the televised Buentello vs Konrad superfight is a light heavyweight brawl between DJ Linderman and Richard Hale.

The televised card also features the Bellator debut of British featherweight, Ronnie Mann, against Josh Arocho. Also included in the card is another light heavyweight tournament, pitting Tim Carpenter and Christian M’Pumbu. A bantamweight duel between Luiz Alberto Nogueira and Jerod Spoon will likely be part of the main card.

Bellator 42 will take place on April 23 at the Lucky Star Casino in Concho, Oklahoma. The event’s main card will air live at MTV2.
