A bout of dengue fever has knocked Philipe Lins out of a planned Bellator 142 contest with Francis Carmont.

In place of Lins will step Roy Boughton on the September 19 card from the SAP Center in San Jose. The Carmont-Boughton winner will be the first alternate for the light heavyweight tournament.

Boughton (12-5) lost to Emanuel Newton in his lone Bellator fight, which came three years ago. Carmont (23-10) earned a victory in May, which was his Bellator debut, after competing in the UFC.
