BELLATOR 169: KING MO LAWAL vs SATOSHI ISHII fight video
Satoshi Ishii tasted the power of Muhammed Lawal early in the heavyweight main event of Bellator 169 and he did not seem to like it.
Bellator 169 took place at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. It aired on tape-delay on Spike to accomodate local time.
Lawal (20-5 MMA, 12-4 BMMA) continued to pick and paw with strikes, keeping Ishii (14-7-1 MMA, 0-2 BMMA) from getting into range and utilizing his judo throughout Round 1. By the end of the opening frame, Ishii was stuck feebly staring at Lawal while the American posed in the middle of the cage with his hands on his hips.
The taunting continued from Lawal, attempting to draw Ishii into reaching with a strike he could counter. Lawal utilized the fear of incoming strikes to score with a takdown against the cage with nearly two minutes remaining in the round. He continued to grind away to the end of the round.
The song remained the same through Round 3, leading to Lawal taking a easy win on the scorecards by tallies of 30-27 across the board.
Lawal is now riding a two-fight winning streak following a defeat to Phil Davis.
