IF this is true it seems kind of sleazy. I guess Bellator didn't like the outcome of the first fight. Newton should get the title shot, then King Mo can try again later. Hopefully they are paying Newton a good bonus to fight Mo again. Seems like the champ is kind of getting screwed as well not getting to fight on the PPV.

As the story goes, Bellator light-heavyweight champion Attila Vegh wasn't actually injured and instead was told to sit on the sidelines so the organization could book an interim title fight between Muhammed Lawal and Emanuel Newton for its pay-per-view debut on Nov. 2.

The interim title is usually only fabricated if the current champ is out for a year or more.

Appears Bellator is trying too hard. They were in a great spot until Viacom bought them. Now they are doing everything every other Promotion has tried and failed. Trying to cram 15 years worth of work into 18 months. I enjoyed the Bellator shows and their unique format, but I have not watched a single show since they went to Spike.

Bellator is looking more and more shady every day.

Pretty much this. I'd like to see one Michael Chandler wearing UFC gloves.

More like the UFC everyday. But I'm half surprised anyone is complaining because I have a feeling most people would rather see Newton rematch Mo instead of rematch Vegh, half not surprised because not liking mma that isn't UFC is an always hot trend.

So no one should complain because they are not the UFC?

You missed pretty much the best season of bellator to date then. Season 8 was cumulatively the best show in MMA the first quarter of the year.
