King Mo, “I’d love to fight in Affliction”

PRO MMA (http://promma.info) caught up with undefeated Light Heavyweight prospect Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal shortly after the Affliction M-1 Global: Day of Reckoning card. The Team Quest affiliate was in attendance for Affliction’s sophomore effort and gave his thoughts on a few bouts.

“King Mo” (3-0) weighed in on the WAMMA heavyweight title bout between Fedor Emelianenko and Andrei Arlovski and believed Arlovski had been performing well in the fight up until a Emelianenko right hand.

“Andrei Arlovski had a great game plan and was doing a great job boxing. It would have been better if he would have stuck to the outside. Arlovski did a great job moving and he made a mistake when he went for that knee, a terrible mistake, but hindsight is twenty-twenty. He had him backing up and it was the perfect time to throw the knee.”

King Mo gets opponent for a stacked Sengoku 7

Muhammed Lawal, better known to MMA fans as “King Mo” has received an opponent for World Victory Road’s “Sengoku 7” set to take place on January 4, 2009 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

King Mo is 2-0 in professional MMA competition. The collegiate wrestling superstar stepped into the MMA ring for the first time back in September against the highly experienced Travis Wiuff at Sengoku 5. Mo quickly defeated Wiuff with a first round TKO in a light heavyweight matchup.

Five weeks later King Mo was back in the ring at Sengoku 6, this time at a middleweight 185 lbs. taking on Chute Boxe’s Fabio Silva. Once again Mo proved he was more than just a wrestler with a third round TKO over Silva.

The King  walked through his opponents while maintaining control … Read more

Slowly but surely; the rise of King Mo

Muhammad Lawal wasted no time racking up his second TKO victory only five short weeks after making his pro debut. “King Mo” finished Fabio Silva in the opening moments of the third round at Sengoku 6 and in turn took another step en route to becoming a top prospect at 205.

He won his first MMA bout by finishing Travis Wiuff with vicious ground and pound at the two minute eleven second mark at Sengoku 5. Rafael “Feijao” and Thiago Silva may be two of the hottest prospects at light heavyweight; however, Lawal is starting to make noise in this division.

Being on Team Quest puts Lawal on the fast track toward improving upon his natural ability. Under the tutelage of Dan Henderson, Lawal’s skill set will excel leaps and bounds. Wrestlers tend to come into MMA with the best starting base for a fighter.
