With a record of 5-0 in mixed martial arts, last week "King" Mo signed a four-fight deal to compete in Strikeforce over the next 18 months.
In another comprehensive interview, Mo Lawal spoke with us about mixed martial arts, boxing, and a little wrestling. He explained why he signed with Strikeforce and when he is likely to fight next. We discussed his options about fighting as a heavyweight or light heavyweight, and how he believes he matches up with top fighters including top heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko, Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, and Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi. We again discussed the sport of boxing, including the Carl Froch-Andre Dirrell and Arthur Abraham-Jermain Taylor fights from the first round of the super middleweight tournament this past Saturday, October 17. He discussed his love of Japan as a place to fight, and commented on the unwarranted negative views some people have of mixed martial arts fighters who are not in the UFC, and of those fighters who are past their primes. He reiterated his desire to compete in pro boxing, analyzed the reason for the longevity of the boxing career of 44-year-old Bernard Hopkins, and explained that he has no plans to return to wrestling now. He also talked about the plans to popularize Team Thirsty, which includes himself, Daniel Cormier, Rashad Evans, and Shawn Bunch, and much more.
