Bellator’s inagurial PPV venture has added some more star power with the addition of Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal facing Emanuel Newton for the promotion’s interim light heavyweight title. Bellator 106 is scheduled for November 2nd at the Long Beach Arena in California, and the gala already has a scheduled main event featuring former UFC light heavyweight champs colliding as Tito Ortiz faces Rampage Jackson and lightweight champ Michael Chandler fights former belt holder Eddie Alvarez.
King Mo (11-2) will be looking to avenge a KO loss via spinning back fist to Newton (21-7-1) back in February. He rumbled through Seth Petruzelli and Jacob Noe this summer to win the tournament and get a shot at vengeance against the surging Newton.
With champion Attila Vega out with a shoulder injury, an interim bout is necessary.
From King Mo:
“Listen, I’m going to be real honest about this. Emanuel is fake as hell. He runs his mouth about being a black skinhead or something, and likes to act real hard. He’s as hard as baby shit. I’m going to destroy this guy. He landed a shot on me in our first fight, nothing more than that. I’m better than him in every facet of the game. I didn’t even shoot on him that first fight. I can take this fight anywhere I want it, and I will. It’s over. I’m taking that belt in Long Beach, bringing it back to Las Vegas, and no one is getting it back. Not Vegh, Not Rampage. Not Tito, not anyone. It’s mine. Payback is bitch, Emanuel.”
“I’m not going to spout off and trash Mo, I don’t have to do that. I know Mo is going to run his mouth and try to sell his game, but I don’t have anything to prove. I’m the one that knocked him out, and he’s the one that has to deal with that loss on his record, not me. I did it once, and I’m going to do it again, this time on an even bigger stage. History likes to repeat itself, and November 2nd Mo’s going to have to deal with another big loss on his record.view original article >>
