Report: King Mo Signs With Strikeforce

New, 19 comments

From Sherdog:

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal has signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce and could make his promotional debut as early as December, according to a source with knowledge of the negotiations.

Lawal has signed on to compete in the light heavyweight division, said the source.  The deal allows the undefeated Lawal, a NCAA Div. 1 All-American wrestling champion for Oklahoma State in 2003 and decorated international competitor, to continue competing on the Japanese circuit.

We did a poll here after King Mo dismantled Mark Kerr in his last fight.  We had 42% of you saying that he should sign with Strikeforce, with another 43% saying he should sign with the UFC.  I think it's a win/win deal for both parties, except I don't know how smart it is to allow King Mo to continue fighting in Japan while under contract with Strikeforce.
