Strikeforce King Mo Muhammed Lawal

Team Faber is finally on the board as Al Iaquinta squeaked out a split decision victory in a sudden death round against Team Cruz’s Myles Jury.

The big news of the week, however, was the drama surrounding “King Mo” Muhammad Lawal. The former Strikeforce champion was suspended by the NSAC and later released by Zuffa.
