Paul Buentello Pulls Out of Bellator 42 Fight with Cole Konrad

UFC veteran Paul Buentello has been forced out of his non-title bout with Bellator heavyweight champion Cole Konrad at Saturday’s Bellator 42 due to an undisclosed injury.

With the news coming only a few days before the event, Konrad will wait for Buentello to recover rather than find a late-replacement for Saturday’s fight, according to MMAJunkie.

The fight will be replaced on the MTV2-televised card with a lightweight matchup between Josh Arocho and Ronnie Mann.

The complete Bellator 42 card includes:


  • Tim Carpenter vs. Christian M’Pumbu (light heavyweight semifinal)
  • Richard Hale vs. D.J. Linderman (light heavyweight semifinal)
  • Josh Arocho vs. Ronnie Mann


  • Owen Evinger vs Brandon Shelton (local main event)
  • Chris Bell vs Jared Hess
  • Shane Howell vs Mark Oshiro
  • Jerod Spoon vs Luiz “Betao” Nogueira
  • Chris Guillen vs Mark Holata
