King Mo, Heath Herring Added To RIZIN Event

The RIZIN open-weight grand prix lost Shane Carwin, but gained a king.

Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal has been tabbed to fight Mirko Cro Cop later this month in the quarterfinals of the event.

RIZIN FF 3 takes place December 29 and December 31 from the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.

Lawal and Cro Cop will be part of the event along with Baruto vs. Tsuyoshi Kosaka, Heath Herring vs. Amir Aliakbari and Szymon Bajor vs. Valentin Moldavsky.

Herring, who has not fought since a loss to Brock Lesnar in the UFC, is the replacement for Carwin.
