[ads1]Bellator Fighting Championships kicked off their Summer Series 2013 in a big way Wednesday night LIVE on Spike TV from the Windstar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla. In the main event Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal silenced the critics with a devastating first round starching of “Kimbo Killa” Seth Petruzelli, who had been taunting and mocking King Mo in the weeks leading up to their light heavyweight tournament semifinal bout.
Mo has a dual pro wrestling/MMA agreement with Bellator MMA and Impact Wrestling, but after faltering against Emanuel Newton in the light heavyweight tournament semifinals last season, there was some question if he could still compete at a high level in MMA while learning the pro wrestling ropes. Mo will now face West Tennessee’s Jacob Noe in the tournament finals later this Summer. Noe advanced Wednesday night with a third round TKO win over Renato “Babalu” Sobral.
Watch Mo’s performance below from Bellator MMA 96 against Seth Petruzelli with guest commentary by none other than “The Natural” Randy Couture:
