Another Convincing Win For “King Mo” Lawal

latest

Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal paid respects to those closest to him after taking care of Joe Vedepo Saturday night at Bellator 131.

Lawal, a former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, earned his 14th career win by scoring a third-round TKO finish vs. Vedepo. Vedepo stepped in on short notice as a replacement for Tom DeBlass.

“He’s tough as hell,” Lawal said. “He came in, took a beating and kept trying to right.”

Earlier this year, Lawal (14-4) suffered a decision loss to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the finals of the Season 10 tournament. Since, he’s finished both Vedepo and Dustin Jacoby.

Overall since joining the promotion, Lawal is 6-3, including a pair of losses to current division champion Emanuel Newton.
