New, comments

It was a good morning for Bellator light heavyweight Muhammed Lawal, as he became the Rizin Fighting Federation heavyweight tournament champion.

"King Mo" met Jiri Prochazka in the tournament final after defeating Teodoras Aukstuolis in the semifinals earlier in the card.

Throughout the first five minutes of the first round, Lawal mixed up his crisp boxing along with his takedowns and ground and pound to batter the Czech Prochazka. After the five-minute mark, "King Mo" connected with a straight right that dropped Prochazka to the canvas.

Rizin Fighting Federation 2 took place on Thursday at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
