After publicly expressing interest in getting a crack at Fighters.com Heavyweight Champion “Last Emperor” Fedor Emelianenko’s (31-1), “King Mo” Muhammed Lawal (4-0) told Tatame Thursday, “It’s up to Strikeforce at this point.”
Lawal has a Strikeforce matchup versus “Iron” Mike Whitehead (24-6) lined up for Saturday in San Jose.
“Well, we both have fights on the horizon that we have to take care of first,” Lawal told Tatame. “He’ll have his hands full against guys like Fabricio and Overeem. I know I have to keep winning and so does he.”
Lawal commented, ” He’s not fighting very often so I don’t know.”
