Wednesday, June 24, 2013, Talk MMA Radio brings you Bellator’s “King” Mo Lawal (10-2-1) and Invicta Fighting Championship’s rising strawweight Tecia Torres (3-0).
Lawal is coming off of a 1st round highlight reel knockout of Seth Petruzelli in Bellator’s Light Heavyweight semifinal Summer Series tourney at Bellator 96. He heads into Bellator 97 in hopes of claiming rights to the title of Summer Series Light Heavyweight Tourney Champ as he will face off against Jacob Noe. Noe advanced into the finals the same night as Lawal with a surprising TKO stoppage of now retired MMA veteran Renato “Babalu” Sobral. The two will collide next week, July 31, at Bellator 97 at Rio Rancho, New Mexico.
“The Tiny Tornado” Tecia Torres looked impressive in her stand up and submission defense as she gave media’s favored Rose Namajunas her first MMA defeat. Torres looked clean in her stand up and displayed patience in her grappling as she disappointed media as they mostly favored Namajunas. The American Top Team product now awaits the challenge as she stops in to chat with us.
Talk MMA Radio can be viewed tomorrow evening at 9pm EST/6pm PST, July 24, 2013.
