Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal Signs With StrikeforceAdding to its growing light heavyweight division, Strikeforce has signed undefeated rising star Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal to a deal that could see the charismatic standout debut for the promotion as soon as December. He will be free to continue competing in Japan for Sengoku Raiden Championship.

Known as much for his flashy entrances and pandering to the crowd as he is for his in-ring abilities, Lawal is one of the fastest-rising competitors in the light heavyweight division.

Lawal (5-0-0) has won four of his five fights by stoppage due to strikes, with only his fight against Japanese veteran Ryo Kawamura going the distance. In that fight, Lawal tore a ligament in his knee during the first round, but continued on and walked away with a lopsided Unanimous Decision.

He is coming off of a 25-second thrashing of MMA pioneer Mark Kerr at M-1 “Breakthrough” in August and will be looking to keep his perfect record intact moving forward.

In addition to his new tenure in Strikeforce, Lawal is rumoured to be facing former UFC Heavyweight Champion Kevin “The Monster” Randleman at an upcoming Sengoku Raiden Championship event.
