By a spinning backfist no less.
In case you missed it, another one of Bellator’s big money signees was embarrassed on national television as King Mo Lawal got his clock cleaned Thursday night. Maybe he was confused and forgot whether it was Impact Wresting or Bellator that was scripted because he was acting like there was no way in hell he was going to lose. Halfway through round one, with his hands hanging by his knees, the former Strikeforce champ threw a couple lazy haymakers. His opponent Emanuel Newton slipped the punches and countered with a perfectly timed spinning attack, cracking him square on the jaw.
King Mo went out on his feet and was CRADLED LIKE A BABY to the mat for a nappy nap. So much for that Babalu-Lawal dream match eh Bjorn? Looks like you’ll have to settle for Anonymous Nobody vs. Random Russian VIII for the light-heavyweight finals this season.
But you know what they say, if ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
