Bellator Fighting Championships kicked off their Summer Series 2013 in a big way Wednesday night LIVE on Spike TV from the Windstar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla. In the main event Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal silenced the critics with a devastating first round starching of “Kimbo Killa” Seth Petruzelli, who had been taunting and mocking King Mo in the weeks leading up to their light heavyweight tournament semifinal bout.
We heard from King Mo’s boxing coach Jeff Mayweather yesterday in an interview. Now we’ve got a quote from Mo about what happened from his perspective at Bellator 90 last week where he suffered a first round knockout loss to Emanuel Newton, and how he plans to deal with it and make adjustments moving forward.
ProMMAnow.com’s Dan “The Wolfman” caught up King Mo Lawal and his boxing coach Jeff Mayweather last week at Bellator 85 in Irvine, Calif. Mo talked about his upcoming Bellator debut which takes place this Thursday on Spike TV. He also discussed his pro wrestling training for TNA Impact, which he calls “harder than MMA”, and he and his boxing coach Jeff Mayweather shared their opinion on the idea of a boxing match between Mo and Kimbo Slice, and fighting Rampage Jackson in the Bellator cage.
It wasn’t that long ago Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson spewed vitriol at one another like Tony Soprano vs. Tom Kane and were probably just a couple insults away from meeting in a back alley parking lot for some bare-knuckle score-settling.
ProMMAnow.com’s resident old-school MMA guru Dan “The Wolfman” sat down with Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal this past week to talk about his new deal with TNA Impact Wrestling and Bellator Fighting Championships that will allow him to perform as a pro wrestler and compete as a pro MMA fighter simultaneously.
At 2 p.m. ET today, Spike TV is holding a media conference call to announce major talent deal involving Bellator Fighting Championships and TNA Wrestling. It looks like that talent deal could involve none other than former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.
