Bellator MMA is continuing its recent trend of flashy moves to draw eyeballs in 2015. Bellator President Scott Coker made the announcement of what he called a “superfight” for Bellator 134.
Muhammed Lawal (14-4 MMA, 6-3 BMMA) will move up to heavyweight to face Cheick Kongo (22-9-2 MMA, 4-1 BMMA). Bellator officials confirmed the booking to MMAjunkie on Tuesday. Coker first made the announcement during an appearance on “The MMA Hour.”
The fight boosts a card that lost its main event when Douglas Lima was forced out of his main event title defense against Paul Daley due to a knee injury.
