The September 12th Bellator MMA 124 event from Plymouth, Michigan has a last minute fight change.

John Schulz has been removed from his scheduled bout with Ryan Couture citing “medical issues”, and has been replaced with Michigan native Tom Bagnasco.

No word was given what exactly “medical issues” entails; one can assume it’s nothing small for the 5-2 Schulz to pass up an opportunity to fight someone with the last name “Couture” on a televised fight card. His missed opportunity is a golden one for Tom Bagnasco. Last minute calls for a fill in role aren’t uncommon in MMA, that call came and it was for a lightweight fight for the 6’ featherweight Bagnasco.
