It has turned out that nipple rings and all, class=”hiddenSpellError” pre=””>Strikeforce has signed the extremely talented Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal to a 4 fight deal this morning. King Mo who has recently made very short work of veteran mixed martial artist Mark Kerr in 25 seconds is no joke and only wants to fight the best that Strikeforce has to offer, saying he wants to dive right in with the sharks in the likes of Fedor Emelianenko aswell as light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi.
King Mo first came noticed by our western world when getting into a slight confrontation with former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson on a bus with the likes of Bobby Lashley because King Mo had called Rampage “Bumpage” at one point. This video was sent around the MMA world (and I will show it below) and everyone had thought who is this 4-0 guy trying to mess with Rampage? Is he Crazy?
Not so much. This guy is no joke and should be considered one of the top light heavyweights in the sport of MMA. Not only did he make short work of legendary heavyweight fighter Mark Kerr but he has an extensive background in beating dudes up. This guy wrestled for Oklahoma State and was a division 1 champion in 2003 aswell as a Big 12 Champion. He was also ranked the best wrestler in the United States for 3 years in the 84 kilo weight class. Also seen in 4 out of his 5 fights, he has KO power which added to his wrestling pedigree makes him a very dangerous contender and Strikeforce has made the right decision by signing him.
Like I have said before, the UFC needs to watch out about the ever so growing Strikeforce. Strikeforce just keeps upping the competition and UFC still seems to be at a stand still. It is guys like your Gegard Mousasi and your King Mo that the more powerful MMA promotion should be signing but yet some how are not? Step up the game UFC or else Strikeforce will continue to do the right thing and the UFC/ Dana White will be stuck up in politics when the fans want to see the best fight the best.
