Strikeforce light heavyweight, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal is scheduled to make his debut for the promotion on December 19 at the HP Pavillion in San Jose CA. An opponent for Lawal has been a bit of a mystery, squeezing any information out of the fighter or his camp has been next to impossible, tonight all of that changed.
From Lawal’s twitter account:
King Mo vs….Put it like this….Its a type of pimple!!! Ima bust it tho!!!
With that bit of information it would appear that Mike Whitehead would be the likely opponent. Whitehead is coming off a victory over Kevin Randleman, and is 15-1 in his last 16 fights. Lawal who is 5-0 as a professional is coming off a victory over Mark Kerr.
