Bellator 154 limps it's way to the SAP Center in San Jose, CA. The card is highlighted with an excellent fight between light heavyweights Phil Davis and Muhammed Lawal, Unfortunately we're not going to see the planned bout between Michael Chandler and former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson due to an injury to Thomson. Even worse was the untimely death of Jordan Parsons from a hit and run accident. He was scheduled to fight Adam Piccolotti who now takes on Ray Wood. The rest of the card pits Andre Fialho vs. Rick Reger in a welterweight battle and Evangelista Santos vs. Saad Awad.
Davis vs. King Mo is a really difficult fight to predict. Both are coming off tournament wins and add to it the winner is in line for the light heavyweight title. I think Davis holds a slight edge in wrestling, but not enough of one to consider it a major advantage. This fight will be won standing where Lawal has the advantage.I think King Mo does just enough to pull out the decision in a very close fight.
