King Mo signs with Bellator and TNA Impact! Wrestling for Spike TV

That was fast.

We told you earlier today that former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Muhammed Lawal was "chasing that paper," and it's apparently landed him in not one, but two different organizations under the Spike TV broadcasting umbrella.

So much for mixed martial arts (MMA) and professional wrestling being mutually exclusive.

That's right, "King Mo" is going to split his time between TNA IMPACT! wrestling and Bellator Fighting Championships -- just as soon as he gets all healed up from recent knee surgery, according to Sherdog.com.

His medical time-out should also be long enough to satisfy his current suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). Lawal was benched for nine months and fined $39,000 for testing positive for steroids earlier this year in Strikeforce.

An official announcement is expected later today on a conference call featuring executives from all three companies (Spike TV, TNA and Bellator). Until then, we have the opportunity to discuss Lawal's transition back into real (and fake) fighting.
