Rising two-division prospect, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal is reportedly now a part of the Strikeforce stable of fighters. Sherdog says that Lawal will look to make his promotional debut in December, but will be able to continue competing in Japan, where he has made a big name for himself.
Lawal has fought three times at heavyweight, and twice at light heavyweight in his five fight undefeated career. His first four fights were under the Sengoku (now Sengoku Raiden Championship) banner, where he earned three TKO victories, and a decision. His most recent bout was also his US debut at M-1 Global Breakthrough, where he defeated late replacement Mark Kerr.
It is as yet unclear whether Lawal will fight at light heavyweight, heavyweight, or both with Strikeforce.
