Bellator 174: Coenen vs. Budd is set to take tonight from the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma, but not before a major shakeup of the main card lineup. The main event will still be Marloes Coenen vs. Julia Budd for Bellator’s inaugural women’s featherweight belt, but after Mike Rhodes failed to make weight, his scheduled co-main event with Kendall Grove was scrapped.
Fernando Gonzalez vs. Brandon Girtz is now being bumped up to the co-main event, but will now be at a catchweight tilt of 174, and not welterweight, as Gonzalez weighed in at 173.9 with Girtz clocking in at 165.6. Once again, Joe Taimanglo was unable to make the bantamweight limit, so his main card fight with Steve Garcia was cancelled.
Moving up from the preliminary card, heavyweight Justin Wren will get some Spike TV shine as he takes on Bellator newcomer Roman Pizzolato. Grappling guru Rafael Lovato Jr. has also been pushed up to the main card as he takes on short notice opponent Chris hackmann at a catchweight of 195 pounds.
Bellator 174: Coenen vs. Budd can be seen live on Spike TV at 9:00 P.M. EST with the prelims streaming online at 7:00 P.M. EST.
