I can now confirm that Eric Prindle has been awarded the 100k and Bellator Heavyweight title shot after Thiago Santos missed weight.

Read entire twitter

Eric Prindle took a long, strange route to Bellator’s Season 5 Heavyweight Tournament winner, its $100,000 total purse (ist fight was 10/10, 2nd & 3rd was 20/20), and a title fight with Champion Cole Konrad.

At Bellator 59 Prindle fought Thiago Santos in the heavyweight tournament final, but Santos inexplicably decided to execute a mighty nut punt. Brazilian love of soccer is as reasonable an explanation as any for the foul.

http://i43.tinypic.com/2us8igy.gif

The kick was somehow declared accidental, and the bout was declared a no contest. Prindle reported on the status of his nuts for days, until they were better.

The two were rescheduled to fight last Friday at Bellator 61, but Prindle got the flu, and was forced to withdraw at the last moment.

Finally they were scheduled to fight tomorrow at Bellator 62, but Santos weighed in at 277.8, and was unable to make the 265 pound cutoff, so Prindle was declared the winner.

Bellator 62
Friday, March 23
Laredo Energy Arena
Laredo, Texas
MTV2 will broadcast the main bouts at 8PM ET/PT.

It isn't $100,000K, its misleading.

He made total $100K which was $10k and $10k, $20K and $20K and $20K and $20k.

Santos is just a slob to lose out on that.

So in other words he lost out on 20k? Or 40 because he didn't even get to show in the final fight? Phone Post

 prindle deserves to win, there's no excuse for santos to miss weight. 
it just sucks though, because prindle has no ground game and no chance against cole. 
santos could have at least made it a fight.

Really? Missed weight by almost 12 pounds? He had the fight in the bag too. I like Prindle, but his ground game is definitely his weakness. Santos was even saying last week how making weight was no problem. Jackass.

Prindle got lucky as hell. But I'd take a kick in the bunghole for 100K. Santos would have won. Phone Post

Only 100k for all 3 fights?? Was like others and under the impression that they get 100k check + regular $$ for winning... fooled by the 6 figure contract bling again... tournament seems a lot less attractive now tbh.
Agreed. I thought he got paid for his fight and then a future guaranteed 100K. Lame. Phone Post
