We’re less than two weeks away from one of the most anticipated rematches in Bellator history.

At Bellator 90, Emanuel Newton pulled off one of the most shocking upsets of the year when he drilled Muhammed Lawal with a spinning backfist. The shot knocked out “King Mo” in the first round and shot Newton into the light heavyweight tournament final – which he won.

At Bellator 106, the promotion’s first pay-per-view, Newton and Lawal will rematch for the interim 205-pound title, with “Mo” having won two fights by knockout since that loss.

Check out the full fight video from Bellator 90 above, then tune into the rematch at Bellator 106 on pay-per-view Nov. 2 from Long Beach Arena in California.
