With just under two weeks to go, Bellator officials are on the hunt for a new opponent for Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.
Lawal was set to face Tom DeBlass at Bellator 131 on November 15, but DeBlass suffered a nasty cut in training and will not be cleared in time to fight. This is the second time the two light heavyweights have had a bout scrapped.

DeBlass and Lawal were set to fight in September, but a knee injury knocked DeBlass out of commission. Lawal, a former Strikeforce champion, went on to defeat Dustin Jacoby.
