fedor mousasiM-1 Global has made twelve bouts official for the upcoming “HDNET FIGHTS PRESENTS M-1 GLOBAL BREAKTHROUGH” event to be held in Kansas City.

The card will be available on HDNet Fights and will take place at the Memorial Hall on Friday, August 28.

The main event will see the quickly rising Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, already an established superstar in Japan where he has etched a 4-0 record fighting for Sengoku, making his first appearance on American soil as the NCAA wrestling champion faces off with former UFC powerhouse Mark Kerr in a heavyweight contest.

A man Wanderlei Silva has tabbed as “the future”, Karl “Psycho” Amoussou is also slated for the card in a middleweight showdown against the underdog, John Doyle; a capable and powerful veteran hoping to steal the spotlight of the French knockout specialist in a major way.

A heavyweight bout salvaged from “Affliction: Trilogy” pitting Jesse Gibbs up against Rob Broughton has been announced for the event. Gibbs has put up six wins in his last seven bouts while Broughton has established himself as one of the best big men in the UK, racking up wins over the likes of Neil Grove, Robert “Buzz” Berry and James “Collosus” Thompson.

The rematch between Lucio Linhares and Mikhail Zayats, two of the most talented middleweights competing out of M-1 Challenge, also promises to be one to watch.

Kicking off the card will be a woman many of you loyal 5 Oz’ers are well aware of. Andria Caplan will be making her much anticipated MMA debut as she faces off with an undefeated Mollie Ahlers-Estes.

Also scheduled for the event will be an exhibition match between Fedor Emelianenko and Gegard Mousasi. It will be interesting to see how things play out during this exhibition. Expect for things to get a little more heated than anticipated as Mousasi may have a bit to prove to Fedor. Neither man will want to be embarrassed, and it could turn out to be quite interesting. Here’s to hoping.
