In the headliner of Bellator 130, Emanuel Newton had a hard time in the early rounds in the fight against Linton Vassell who was near to submit the champion several times. However, after finding his way out of trouble every time, Newton started to look better in the third round, taking down the challenger and beating him there. After instructions from his corner before the final round, the Englishman was supposed to take "Hardcore Kid" to the ground and work there, but Newton sprawled, took Vassell's back and choked him out. In the co-headliner Bobby Lashley had no trouble with Karl Etherington who instead of striking with the WWE star wanted to fight in a clinch. He paid for it when he tried to throw Lashley down, he failed and the American jumped on him straight away punching several times on the grounded opponent until the referee stopped the match. Check out the main event fights below and also the full Bellator 130 results.
