Bellator 233 saw thunderous knockouts, back-and-forth action, and a rough final outing for former Strikeforce champ King Mo Lawal.

John Salter earned a hard-fought win in the main event, King Mo was shocked and knocked out in his farewell fight, and Tyrell Fortune proved he’s the heavyweight of the future at Bellator 233. A lot of twists and turns played out on the four-fight main card, which also included Arlene Blencowe taking home a unanimous decision over the always tough Leslie Smith at featherweight.

Oh, and let’s not forget this little headkick doozy from Christian Edwards.

Full results and a gallery of highlights from the event, which took place at the WinStar World Casino and Resort Friday night, can be found below. For more coverage, be sure to check out our Bellator 233 page.
