King Mo On Bellator Loss: “I Thought I Won”

King Mo On Bellator Loss: “I Thought I Won”

Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal was shocked this past weekend when the judges awarded the decision to Emanuel Newton at Bellator 106.

Lawal suffered his second loss to Newton, this time costing him the interim Bellator light heavyweight title. The first meeting ended with the former Strikeforce champ knocked out due to a spinning back fist.

“I could have done more,” said Lawal, during the post-fight press conference. “I felt like I did more damage and I hurt him more. I thought I won.

“It is what it is.”

Lawal will likely head back into another Bellator tournament, looking to secure a future title shot against the winner of Newton vs. Attila Vegh, which will crown the unified champion in 2014.
