It didn’t take Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal long to let it be known he’s not friends with Jacob Noe, which makes their upcoming fight a little bit more intense.
“I don’t like him,” said Lawal at the Bellator 96 post-fight press conference. “He’s fake. He talks a lot of trash behind my back, and I hope that he’s here listening, or you all can tell him this because I’m going to beat the brakes off of him. I’m going to whoop his a– so bad I’m going to retire him.”
Lawal, who was a favorite to win the Season 8 tournament but failed, returned with a first round finish of Seth Petruzelli at yesterday’s Bellator 96.
Noe also took a stoppage on the same card, needing the third round to finish Renato Sobral.
The two conclude the four person light heavyweight tournament at Bellator 97. That’s July 31 from the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, NM.
