Erick Silva out of grand prix alternate bout vs. Lorenz Larkin at Bellator 207

Erick Silva’s Bellator debut will have to wait.

Silva (19-7 MMA, 1-2 BMMA) has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled welterweight grand prix alternate matchup against Lorenz Larkin (20-9 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) next week at Bellator 207, a promotion official on Monday told MMAjunkie.

A search for a replacement opponent for Silva, who was forced off the card due to injury, is currently underway.

Bellator 207 takes place Oct. 12 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The main card airs on Paramount and DAZN following prelims on MMAjunkie.

Larkin, 32, will attempt to find a winning streak for the first time in his Bellator career after registering his first victory with the promotion in January. “The Monsoon” dropped consecutive fights to Douglas Lima and Paul Daley to kick off his tenure before outpointing Fernanda Gonzalez to a decision at Bellator 193.

Silva’s withdrawal marks the second opponent change for Larkin. He was originally scheduled to face Yaroslav Amosov in the alternate bout.
