On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with the undefeated mixed martial arts fighter, and freestyle and college wrestling champion, "King" Mo Lawal.
With a record of 6-0 with 5 KOs, Mo Lawal will be getting what he has asked for on Saturday, April 17: a title shot against Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi (28-2-1). This will be one of three title fights on that Strikeforce card, which takes place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, and will be broadcast live in the U.S. on CBS.
We spoke with Mo Lawal Monday night to get his take on what to expect in this fight. Confident, candid, and calm, he stated his case why he believes that he will emerge victorious in it. He explained what lessons he has drawn from the recent victories by Mousasi, and why he believes that his overall technique and athleticism are superior. As always, we also discussed some boxing and wrestling, and the status of his plans to compete in both while still fighting in mixed martial arts, as well as other issues related to the combat sports.
This interview reveals the real Mo Lawal, and is essential to understanding the mindset of a fighter many consider to be a blossoming star.
