‘King Mo’ Lawal Headed To Bellator, TNA Wrestling

Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal has signed to keep himself active while waiting for his suspension to end, as the former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion is now a Bellator and TNA Wrestling competitor.

MMA Weekly’s Ken Pishna reported that Lawal has signed with Bellator, and will also be allowed to compete for TNA. Both Bellator and TNA have announced a press conference for Thursday, likely to confirm the signing of Lawal.

Lawal was released from his Zuffa contract after a failed post-fight drug test and Twitter outburst against the Nevada State Athletic Commission. He is currently suspended from MMA, but can compete for TNA as soon as he wants to.

Bellator and TNA are seen on Spike TV and MTV2, with Bellator heading to Spike TV next year. The idea that Lawal could show up on both program is very likely, with more cross-brand promoting a possibility to help push both organizations.
