Next week's Bellator 179 card has been hit by the injury bug.
Welterweight contender Michael "Venom" Page has been forced to withdraw from his fight against Derek Anderson due to a knee injury, MMA Fighting has learned. The Daily Telegraph first reported the news.
As a result, Anderson has been pulled from the card and Liam McGeary vs. Linton Vassell will serve as the co-main event.
The event, headlined by Rory MacDonald vs. Paul Daley, will take place at Wembley Arena in London, England.
