Ferrid Kheder Out Of Bellator Lightweight Tourney; Replaced By James Krause

Due to a case of appendicitis, lightweight tournament competitor Ferrid Kheder has been forced out of the eight-man field and has been replaced by WEC veteran James Krause. His bout with Toby Imada – originally slated for Bellator 15 – is now part of Bellator 14.

To make room, a planned Bellator 14 featherweight tourney bout between Patricio "Pitbull" Freire and William Romero has been moved to next week's Bellator 15 event.

- MMA Junkie explains the changes for the next few weeks of Bellator events.

Kheder was one of the few guys in the 155 tournament that I saw having even a slight chance at beating Roger Huerta.  Now with James Krause coming in it should be a cakewalk to the tournament title for Roger.  Still, Krause is a decent fight for Imada.  He is 11-2 and only lost his two WEC fights while getting stoppage victories in every other bout.

The Freire/Romero bout being moved is a downer for the Chicago fans as it's arguably the best and most interesting of the first round of the featherweight tournament.
