King Mo Believes Victory At Bellator 169 Will Get Him Title Shot


Bellator MMA is heading to Ireland for the first time ever this Friday Night with King Mo and Satoshi Ishii headlining the historic card, a joint card with the BAMMA promotion.

Mo, who has previously suffered a defeat to Bellator MMA Light Heavyweight Champion Phil Davis (who wasn’t a champion in their first meeting), believes a win over Ishii will get him another opportunity at Davis and the gold.

“If I look impressive, which I think I will, then I think that does help the argument to getting the rematch,” Lawal said on MMA Junkie Radio. “Even though, let’s be real, there shouldn’t be a rematch because I beat him the first time. Let’s be real. He should be rematching me because I beat him the first time.”

Mo hasn’t been too busy in 2016, when you consider that he fought a total of 5 times in 2015, but he expects that to change in the coming year.

“I’m pretty sure next year will be busy,” Lawal said. “I’m hoping so. I think it will. Things happen. I was supposed to fight in August, but that fell through. Then I was going to fight in early September and that fell through.”

Bellator 169 takes place on Friday, December 16 from the 3 Arena in Dublin, Ireland with King Mo and Satoshi Ishii headlining.
