Sengoku 11: Kevin Randleman vs Muhammed Lawal under consideration for Nov. 7


While the rumor of Josh Barnett's return to Sengoku continues to circulate, Muhammed Lawal (5-0) and Kevin Randleman (17-13) are in talks to square off at "Eleventh Battle" from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on Nov. 7 according to

"King Mo" is a decorated collegiate wrestling champion and Division I All-American from Oklahoma State University.

Prior to his 25-second demolition of MMA legend Mark Kerr at M-1 "Breakthrough" back on Aug. 28, Lawal had competed exclusively under the World Victory Road banner in Japan since his professional mixed martial arts debut just last year.

The 28-year-old has shown tremendous promise, defeating several veterans of the sport and stopping most of them.

His instantly made a name for himself in his debut against Travis Wiuff at Sengoku: "Fifth Battle" — Lawal needed little more than two minutes to score a convincing technical knockout win via strikes.

He now looks to add Randleman to that list of victims.

After satisfying a one-year suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which was issued for providing a non-human urine sample following his loss to "Shogun" Rua at PRIDE 33, "The Monster" appeared under the Sengoku banner in May 2008, pulling out a unanimous decision victory over Ryo Kawamura.

In his last fight, he dropped a unanimous decision to Mike Whitehead at Strikeforce: "Lawler vs Shields" on June 6. Earning a victory over a prized prospect like Lawal will certainly help reinvigorate his career.
