A third opponent has been tabbed for Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and Bellator 123, as Dustin Jacoby replaces Marcus Sursa.
Set for September 5 from Connecticut, the event takes place from the Mohegan Sun Arena and airs on Spike TV. Lawal-Jacoby serves as the co-main event to a featherweight title match between Pat Curran and Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.
Lawal (12-4) was set to face Tom DeBlass, but an injury forced DeBlass out. Sursa was inserted, but he also has since been removed.
Jacoby (10-3) will be making his debut with Bellator and is coming off a knockout over Lucas Lopes this past weekend. He is a former UFC fighter and has won two straight and four of his last five.
