(Time to fill out those work visa applications, girls.)
Give Strikeforce credit, now that they’ve become a major player in the MMA scene they’re busy filling the holes in their roster as quickly as they pop up. Their most recent addition is All-American wrestler and flamboyant Sengoku terror, Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal. Strikeforce has reportedly signed Lawal on to compete in their 205-pound division – also known as the weight class Gegard Mousasi is currently dominating – but he’ll also be able to keep fighting in Japan. Does this mean Strikeforce is inviting another Alistair Overeem scenario, should Lawal some day become light heavyweight champ? We’re going to go ahead and say no, based purely on the unfounded assumption that, as an attention-hungry American, King Mo would probably rather hold it down on the domestic scene than run off on a study abroad hiatus for two years.
No word yet on who Lawal might face in his Strikeforce debut, but he could be ready to fight by December. Maybe “Babalu” Sobral will be recovered from his own nightmare scenario at the hands of “The Dreamcatcher” by then?Read More DIGG THIS
