King Mo Lawal interested in fight with Shane Carwin

Post by MR.WILLIE on Mon Sep 19, 2016 1:22 pm

Muhammed Lawal is looking to tangle with big men again. King Mo, who has fought at heavyweight as recently as 2015, had an interesting answer when asked on The MMA Hour about a next prospective opponent. Instead of naming someone currently on the Bellator roster, he said he wants to fight a former UFC interim heavyweight champion that recently came out of retirement (via MMA Fighting):

"I heard Shane Carwin is looking to fight again. I wouldn't mind fighting Shane Carwin, if he wants to come back. I'll fight anybody, man. Moneyweight. So anybody that's available to fight, I'm down to fight."

Mo doesn't seem bothered by the huge size difference either - while he's not a big light heavyweight, Carwin was a guy that had to cut to make 265 when he was competing in the UFC (he is now a free agent). Lawal said doesn't care:

"Man, look at the old-school MMA fights back in the day," said Lawal. "I ain't hear Keith Hackney complaining about size. I don't care. At the end of the day, if I can make that weight, I'm going to fight you. Shane Carwin is the man. He has heavy hands. I sparred with him before and he touched me a few times, but it's a fight. I'm about getting paid."

Lawal, RIZIN's light heavyweight tournament winner, had a seven-fight win streak stopped in May by Phil Davis. He hasn't stepped into the cage since then. Carwin, now 41, hasn't competed since mid-2011.

Would love to see this fight in the Rizin ring

Got to give King Mo credit for being willing to step up against anyone. Unlike GSP and guys like that, who make a huge deal about moving up 15lbs (when he walks around at that weight or bigger anyway), King Mo doesn't care. He beat Kongo in Bellator and won the Rizin HW GP, so I wouldn't mind seeing him be involved in the Bellator or Rizin HW title picture.

I agree, I like that about him as well kind of like Fedor fighting at his weight against guys that are 265 and up or the early UFC and PRIDE days of open weight or wide ranges of weight.

I like weight classes but don't mind being experimental with them occasionaly. Now that Carwin is in the OWGP who are some other guys at HW Mo can can fight? How about Bigfoot after he is done with the BS fight he has lined up next?

Mo vs. Kongo, Johnson, Sergei, Javy, Lashley would be intersting.
