He knows he's got his work cut out for him...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, "King" Mo Lawal (9-1 MMA, 1-0 BFC) talked about the odds in his favor for his fight with Emmanuel Newton (19-7-1 MMA, 2-1 BFC) in the semifinal round of the Bellator light-heavyweight tournament in West Valley City, Utah, tonight on Spike TV at 10 PM ET.
The odds are in favor of Lawal 14-1 while Newton is the 8-1 underdog. Here are highlights:
On the tournament: "I obviously want to win the tournament, but I don't know if I need to demolish it. If it happens, it happens. But just because a guy doesn't have a big name, that doesn't mean he's not tough. Before Fedor [Emelianenko] and [Anderson] Silva were known, they were kicking some ass. Then they kicked the right ass and got a break."
On his personality getting him noticed: "The notoriety is nothing. I might have been in the right place at the right time, and I have the personality to get noticed, but Jacob Noe's a tough guy. [Mikhail] Zayats is a tough guy. They're just kind of quiet."
