Bellator 98 was supposed to be headlined by Alexander Schlemenko and Dough Marshall, but due to a broken hand Marshall will not be able to compete and Brett Cooper will instead face the champion. This means that the Swede Andreas Spång will also see a new opponent for the upcoming event, one who is named Justin Torrey.
Since Justin made his debut in 2003 he have only had 7 fights, all of them have been wins and 6 by T/KO finishes. He last fought in 2010 at Bellator against Lance Everson. The ‘Sweet Swede’ have lost his two last fights in Bellator, against stellar competition Maiquel Falcao and Doug Marshall. The two will meet 7th of September in Uncasville, Connecticut.
