When the two squared off with one another following weigh-in’s for photograph opportunities, Amoussou tried his best to intimidate his opponent by butting heads with Doyle. After being separated the French knockout specialist went right back at it before being warned against doing it again from Doyle himself. When it was apparent that Doyle’s warning was somehow being lost in translation by Amoussou, the man known as “The Iron Bull” showed how he got his nickname and greeted Karl with a forehead charge of his own. Needless to say the photo shoot was cut short.
Headlining the card, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal tipped the scales at a solid 219 pounds while being out-weighed by Mark Kerr, who came in at the 263 pound mark.
“M-1 Global: Breakthrough” is set for tomorrow evening, Friday, August 28, from the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, and will air live on HDNet.
