Bellator 98: Cooper Replaces Marshall

Doug Marshall

A broken hand for Doug Marshall has forced a change to the Bellator 98 lineup. Replacing the Season 8 tournament champion will be Season 8 runner-up Brett Cooper. The bout between Cooper and Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko will remain as the night’s main event.

The card will also feature former champion Joe Warren taking on bantamweight Nick Kirk and the Fight Master: Bellator MMA final. The card will take place at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut on September 7 and serve as the launch for Bellator MMA Season 9.
