Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal signs four-fight deal with Strikeforce

Muhammed Lawal has reason to celebrate after signing a new four-fight contract with Strikeforce.

That beef with Quinton Jackson is going to have to wait a while longer, I guess.

Muhammed Lawal, who will battle Lorenz Larkin at Strikeforce: "Rockhold vs. Jardine" tomorrow night (Sat., Jan. 7, 2012) on Showtime, has signed a new four-fight deal with the promotion.

That's according to MMAFighting.com, who also have the following quote from "King Mo" on a recent appearance on the MMA Hour:

"I've got one more fight on my contract and then my contract ends in February. King Mo just wants to go where he can get paid and get paid without the check bouncing."

And now he's paid.

Lawal would have made for a rather interesting addition to the UFC's light heavyweight division but the reality is that he's far more likely to earn a crack at gold if he sticks around in Strikeforce. In fact, if he wins tomorrow night, he's likely in line for a title shot.

That, and a check that won't bounce, is hard to pass up. Even if it puts his feud with "Rampage" on hold once again. Still, is anyone feeling like complaining at the news that Lawal is back in Strikeforce instead of the UFC?
