Video: Bellator 96's 'Road to Redemption' with Mo Lawal and War Machine


Ahead of Wednesday’s Bellator 96 event and the start of the organization’s latest Summer Series, Bellator has released a new video preview.

Titled “Road to Redemption,” it focuses on two of the event’s main-card fighters: Muhammed Lawal and War Machine.

Bellator 96 takes place at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla. The main card airs on Spike TV following prelims on Spike.com.

“King Mo” and War Machine are both part of the televised lineup.

After an upset loss to Emanuel Newton in a Season 8 light-heavyweight tournament, Lawal (9-2 MMA, 1-1 BFC) returns to a four-man field and meets Seth Petruzelli (14-7 MMA, 1-1 BFC) in an opening-round matchup.

War Machine (12-4 MMA, 0-0 BFC), meanwhile, returns from a 19-month layoff due to legal issues and injuries to fight Blas Avena (8-6 MMA, 1-0 BFC) in a non-tournament bout.
