Bellator 154 took place in San Jose, California on Saturday night, and the headlining fight featured two of the world's best light heavyweights.

UFC veteran and now-Bellator star Phil Davis took on Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal in what would be a fight to decide who gets a shot at Bellator 205-pound champ Liam McGreary.

In the end, Davis came through and drummed up a unanimous decision with scores of 29-28, 30-27 and 30-27. Check out the full video highlights below.
