Bellator 134 dubbed ‘The British Invasion’ finally went down last night at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. Although one could argue it was not a full ‘British Invasion’ due to Michael Page and James Thompson having to withdraw from the card due to injury, it was at very best a fine result for the Brits involved.
Here are the full results:
Liam McGeary Def Emanuel Newton Via UD 48-46, 48-47, 48-47 and the new Bellator LHW champion

Michael ‘Venom’ Page is out of this weekend’s Bellator 134, due to injury and therefore has had to withdraw from this weekend’s bout with Curtis Millender.
Brennan Ward will now face Curtis Millender in the opening bout of the main card dubbed ‘The British Invasion’ headlined by heavyweight champion Emanuel Newton who takes on Liam McGeary and in the co-main event is british knockout fighter Paul Daley who takes on Andre Santos.
Bellator 134 takes place this Friday at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
Bellator’s British Invasion has seen a new opponent for newly signed British fighter Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley (35-13), as Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima has been forced out of his bout due to injury.
Daley took to his facebook account earlier stating this:
Paul Daley FB Statement
Nervous, Scared??…..I understand, preparing to fight me…. I would be. It’s ok…. guess you get to have a few more photo shoots with the belt…. My focus has shifted, same date, new opponent…. British Invasion at Bellator 134
The new opponent is Andre “Chatuba” Santos (37-9) . A veteran of the sport in his own right, the Rio De Janeiro fighter has two more wins than Daley in four fewer fights. Santos defeated James Terry at Bellator 129, in what was his first fight on American soil. He now has his sights set on Daley, with hopes to win his seventh straight fight.
Also injury has forced the delay of a heavily anticipated matchup between Bobby Lashley (12-2) and James Thompson (20-14) but Bellator MMA officials have announced a blockbuster fight to replace it in Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal (14-4) vs. Cheick Kongo (22-9-2).
