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