– King Mo made it 2-0 for TNA-contracted talent in action at tonight’s Bellator MMA event. Like TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley, the sometimes-TNA star finished his opponent, Dustin Jacoby, in the second round. Mo dominated the fight before hammering away at Jacoby on the ground, prompting the referee to stop the fight via TKO at 1:13 in Round 2.
“Let me give a quick shoutout to [Scott] Coker, the Bellator staff, Viacom, Spike TV, TNA Wrestling and my boy Larry Holmes,” Mo said after the fight. When asked what was next, Mo replied, “it’s up to Bellator. I fight at moneyweight… 185, 205, heavyweight, wherever the money’s at, that’s where I’ll be.”
– There was also a segment announcing UFC Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar facing fellow Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz at the November 15 Bellator MMA event, which will go head to head with UFC 180: Velasquez vs. Werdum. Bellator CEO Scott Coker introduced Ortiz and Bonnar in the cage, and Bonnar turned the segment into a pro wrestling angle that quickly went from intriguing to absurd.
Bonnar actually brought someone to the cage with him in a mask and started ripping on Ortiz, stating that anyone that’s known Ortiz has been offering to help Bonnar. He then unmasked the guy that no one knew (I thought it was Ken Shamrock for a minute), and noted that the now unmasked man cornered Ortiz for many fights before Ortiz flushed him down the toilet. Bonnar proceeded to make things personal by mentioning Jenna Jameson and wondering how she could have put up with him.
Ortiz called both Bonnar and the masked man drug addicts before shoving Bonnar, which led to officials quickly pulling apart both fighters.
