Bellator 124 Uncut: Light-Heavyweight Champ Emanuel Newton Calls on All Challengers

Bellator has released the “Uncut” video for its September 12th card in Plymouth, Michigan, which saw light-heavyweight champ Emanuel Newton defend his crown with yet another, spinning backfist KO.

This time around the victim was UFC vet Joey Beltran, who despite the fact many folks questioned why he was receiving a title shot to begin with, pushed Newton into round three.

Now, “The Hardcore Kid” may not get routinely mentioned as a top 205’er, but Newton has won six in a row, and two of those victories came against “King Mo” Lawal (one of which came via a spinning backfist…). So, it will be interesting to see where Newton goes from here and if he can get by the tourney winner Liam McGeary.

The video also features Bellator 124 winners like McGeary, Ryan Couture, and LC Davis.
