Bellator 69 Update: Ron Sparks off card for Medical Reasons

Ron SparksFor the second week in a row, Bellator had a last minute change on their MTV2 televised card as heavyweight Ron Sparks had to be removed from the card due to medical reasons.

According to MMAJunkie, Sparks had been battling a sinus infection and the medication he was on raised his blood pressure to unacceptable levels.

No word on whether Sparks and his scheduled opponent, Kevin Asplund, will be compensated.

The bout was replaced by a heavyweight scrap between Mark Holata and TUF-veteran Abe Wagner. A bout Holata won via verbal submission.
