Season eight’s light heavyweight tournament winner, Emanuel Newton earned a shot at a world title following three consecutive wins over Atanas Djambazov, Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal, and Mikhail Zayats. He’s won nine out his last ten fights, with his only loss being a controversial split decision loss to current Bellator title holder, Attila Vegh in the 2012 Summer Series tourney.

Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal rebounded from his upset loss to Emanuel Newton in the semifinals of last season’s tournament, with knockout wins over Seth Petruzelli and Jacob Noe to win this year’s Summer Series tournament.
