Bellator is looking for a new opponent for Brazilian bantamweight Leandro Higo after Johnny Campbell pulled out of Bellator 241 on March 13 due to an injury, multiple sources told MMA Fighting on Tuesday.

Higo (19-5) last fought in September, submitting Shawn Bunch with a guillotine choke in the second round of their 135-pound clash in Inglewood, Calif. That victory put an end to Higo’s two-fight skid, which came against Darrion Caldwell and Aaron Pico.

Bellator 241 takes place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and features Higo’s teammate Patricio Freire defending his featherweight crown against Pedro Carvalho in the main event.
