Bellator MMA 134 returns to Mohegan Sun. Injury has forced the delay of a heavily anticipated matchup between Bobby Lashley (12-2) and James Thompson (20-14). Bellator MMA officials have announced a blockbuster fight to replace it in Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (14-4) vs. Cheick Kongo (22-9-2). Also, Andre Santos (37-9) has stepped in for the injured welterweight champion Douglas Lima (26-5), and will now face the always-dangerous Paul Daley (35-13).
"King Mo" Lawal fights for the 10th time for Bellator MMA and has established himself as one of the most recognizable superstars in the sport. A standout wrestler who normally competes at light heavyweight, the former NCAA Division I All-American and Pan American gold medalist has earned 11 of his 14 career MMA wins by knockout, including recent striking stoppages of Joe Vedepo and Dustin Jacoby. The former Bellator MMA tournament winner and Strikeforce light heavyweight world champion now moves up to heavyweight for the first time since 2009 to challenge himself against Kongo.
Kongo, a 6'4" Frenchman, is a former professional kickboxer who boasts black belts in both Karate and Kendo. A multiple-time world champion in kickboxing, Kongo now focuses solely on MMA and has built a 4-1 record under the Bellator MMA banner.
Paul Daley is a highly feared and respected veteran with dynamite in both fists, which earned him the nickname "Semtex". The 31-year-old from Nottingham, England has won an impressive 74% of his 35 victories by way of knockout.
The new opponent his focus has shifted to is Andre "Chatuba" Santos. A veteran of the sport in his own right, the Rio De Janeiro fighter has two more wins than Daley in four less fights.
