The second time may be the charm for two of the more prominent light heavyweights in Bellator MMA, as Muhammed Lawal and Tom DeBlass will battle on Nov. 15.
After a DeBlass injury scrapped their first bout at Bellator 123, Sherdog.com confirmed that the light heavyweights will square off at Bellator 131, which takes place at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego.
After dropping a unanimous decision to Quinton Jackson at the promotion’s inaugural pay-per-view event, Lawal bounced back with a TKO victory over Dustin Jacoby at Bellator 123. Meanwhile, DeBlass is 2-0 in Bellator, with wins over Jason Lambert and Carlos Brooks.
Bellator 131 is highlighted by a light heavyweight bout between Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar as well as a lightweight title tilt between Will Brooks and Michael Chandler.
