Strikeforce: Mo Lawal Renews Call For Fedor Emelianenko Fight After Whitehead KO
âKing Moâ Muhammed Lawal (5-0) has renewed his call for a matchup versus Fighters.com Heavyweight Champion âLast Emperorâ Fedor Emelianenko (31-1) after Lawalâs impressive first-round stoppage of âIronâ Mike Whitehead (24-7) at Strikeforce in San Jose December 19.
âPeople talk about this guy is unbeatable,â Lawal told Sherdog. âAnybody can be beat in any sport.â
Lawal fought Whitehead at heavyweight, what Lawal called the âmoney weightâ, and indicated heâd fight in whichever division makes sense and âmakes dollars.â
The same night, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said Emelianenko was like to fight ninth-ranked âVai Cavaloâ Fabricio Werdum (12-4-1) on CBS in April.
