M-1 Global "Breakthrough" Live Play-by-Play, Results and Commentary

Fzbzbk_medium

M-1 Global holds the seemingly ill-fated first of their "premium" fight cards tonight in Kansas City, Missouri, with wrestling sensation "King" Mo Lawal taking on faded MMA icon Mark Kerr in the main event. An exhibition sparring match between Red Devil teammates Fedor Emelianenko and Gegard Mousasi is also set to take place during the event, and the undercard features some top notch prospects like Karl Amoussou and Lucio Linhares. In short, trials and tribulations aside, it ought to be a fun night of fights.

Join us here at Bloody Elbow beginning at 10 PM ET for the start of the live HDNet broadcast.

The undercard will be streaming on Sherdog.com starting at 8:15 PM ET.

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (4-0) vs. Mark Kerr (15-10, 1 NC)

Round 1: Lawal wearing wrestling shoes... Kerr slaps at Lawal with a right leg kick, which Lawal snatches up. Kerr tries to turn mid-takedown and winds up turtling on the mat. After a number of punches from Mo and no movement from Kerr, the ref mercifully stops the bout. Mike Fagan notes that it looks as though Kerr may have injured his shouler following the takedown. "The Smashing Machine" lay face down on the canvas for a minute following the match as he spoke to doctors and officials.

Karl "Psycho" Amoussou (10-2-1) vs. "The Iron Bull" John Doyle (8-8, 1 NC)

Round 1: Doyle catches an immediate right leg kick from Amoussou and drags the Frenchman down. Amoussou closes up a tight guard and pulls Doyle's head down as Doyle tries to posture up in the center of the ring. Karl controlling well from guard, now sweeps beautifully to full mount, punching away as Doyle tries to cover up. After absorbing punishment for a good 30 seconds, Doyle finally gives up his back. Amoussou tries to sink in the RNC, but it's loose and Doyle's staying alive. Amoussou takes a moment to work it deeper and elicits the tap.

In his post-fight interview, the M-1 Global-managed "Psycho" says he wants his next fight to be with Strikeforce: "I've waited for it for a long time. I think there will be great fighters to fight, and to kick the asses of."
