King Mo calls out Fedor Emelianenko, wants Dallas dance on Spike TV

Muhammed Lawal is the most qualified heavyweight to fight Fedor Emelianenko.

I know that might sound a little strange considering "King Mo" is a natural light heavyweight, but most of the world's top 265-pounders are signed to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and to be fair, Lawal (19-4, 1 NC) recently captured the Rizin FF heavyweight grand prix tournament (video).

He's also the winner of seven straight.

I'd watch.

Emelianenko (35-4, 1 NC) returned to mixed martial arts (MMA) -- also under the Rizin FF banner -- by wiping the floor with saggy kickboxing import Jaideep Singh (watch it). "The Last Emperor" is expected to compete again in late spring against an opponent to be determined.

But getting him in Dallas could be easier said than done.
