King Mo Likely to Face Roger Gracie or Ovince St. Preux Next

http://mmaweekly.com/strikeforce-muh...-st-preux-next

Quote:
Muhammed Lawal is still without an opponent for his June 18 Strikeforce fight in Dallas, but either Roger Gracie or Ovince St. Preux will be the one to step up and give “King Mo” his royal welcome.

Although the June 18 date for his return is yet to be confirmed by the organization, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker shared Gracie’s and St. Preux’s names as candidates to take on Lawal.

“Roger Gracie would be a potential opponent, maybe OSP,” Coker told MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday.

Lawal (7-1) was last seen attempting to defend his Strikeforce light heavyweight title against Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Houston in August of last year. The night didn’t end well for “King Mo,” as Cavalcante beat him on the feet and defended well against the takedown en route to taking the 205-pound title from Lawal. Since then, Lawal has been sidelined with a knee injury and seen no action.

MMAWeekly.com previously reported that June appeared to be the month in which Lawal was looking to return from his layoff.

“I’m healing great,” Lawal told MMAWeekly.com. “(I’m) looking to fight in June.”

Gracie (4-0) had his first mixed martial arts match nearly five years ago, but has focused much of that time on submission and jiu-jitsu competitions. A fight against Lawal would be his second MMA fight of 2011. His first was a win over Trevor Prangley by rear naked choke at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg in January. All four of Gracie’s wins have come by submission.

St. Preux (10-4), otherwise known as “OSP,” is a product of the Strikeforce Challengers series. The former University of Tennessee football player impressed in his last three outings, beating fighters such as Antwain Britt, Benji Radach, and Ron “Abongo” Humphrey. A fight with Lawal would be an immediate step up in competition for OSP.
That would certainly be quite the step up for OSP or Roger...

Either one of those fights would be a compelling one IMO.

Huge step up for both of these guy's. I'm a fan of all three though, nothing but win for me.

I don;t understand why Mo gets rated as if he is a 10 year vet? It is a step up...but not that big of one. Mo is raw too. He has 8 career fights...his best win against Mousasi, in one of the worst fights of the year...

SF doesn't have a lot of guys. At some point guys are going to have to step up...Mo is basically next.

It isn't that big of a step in my opinion. Makes sense. Mo is almost as raw as these guys and its not like he's kicked many guys ass in the division.

Dammit what happened to the Monson rumor? I was kinda excited about a 205 pound Snowman in Strikeforce.

He's not a 10 year vet, but he's much better than guys like Humphrey, and Randalman or middleweights like Radach and Prangley.
