Ron Sparks Falls Ill, Removed From Bellator 69

The bad luck continues for Bellator, as much like last week, a main card fight had to be scratched due to an participant falling ill. This time, the heavyweight tournament qualifier between Ron Sparks and Kevin Asplund was scratched from the card, and replaced by a preliminary bout between Mark Holata and Abe Wagner.

At this time, there is no word on the condition of Sparks, or what exactly caused his illness.

We wish him a speedy recovery.
