Attila Vegh Out Of Bellator 84 Title Fight With Christian M’Pumbu

Christian M’Pumbu is the Bellator light heavyweight champion.

You may not realize that, as M’Pumbu has yet to defend his title since winning it in 2011.

And, after a training injury to Attila Vegh, it appears M’Pumbu will have to wait even longer.

MMAjunkie.com has confirmed that Vegh is out of a planned main event match with M’Pumbu at Bellator 84. The card takes place December 14.

M’Pumbu (18-4-1) defeated Rich Hale to win the title in 2011. He was topped in a non-title fight later that year vs. Travis Wiuff, and has not fought since.

The report states that Bellator will look to re-book the bout in early 2013 after Vegh is cleared.
