If you watched Bellator’s mini-light-heavyweight tournament at their Bellator 142 Dynamite! event on Saturday night, you saw former Strikeforce champ Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal beat the crap out of Linton Vassell in the opening bout of the tourney, but then bow out due to injury. This deprived us of what was anticipated to be a Phil Davis vs. King Mo final (instead, we got Davis destroying Francis Carmont).

Well, King Mo posted an explanation of what happened on his Facebook account.

On the plus side, we’ll likely get to see Davis and King Mo scrap some time in the future.
