'King' Mo Lawal Re-Signs With Strikeforce

via <a href=""></a>

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal had one fight left on his contract going into this weekend's fight with Lorenz Larkin, but he was able to do something about that. Mo has re-signed with the organization for another four fights, according to MMA Fighting (via Mo's manager):

Muhammed Lawal, who meets Lorenz Larkin at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine Saturday night, has signed a new four-fight contract with Strikeforce, according to Lawal's manager Mike Kogan.

It appears, at least according to Mo himself, that he didn't have much choice in the matter:

Some of y'all mutha*****z is stupid!! We can't leave SF!! If u don't believe me....ask Dana u dumb mutha*****z!!!

He also stated that he wasn't mad though, because he was "bout to get paid". If Mo is able to get by Larkin tonight, he'd definitely be in contention for a shot at the vacant LHW title he once held. And it looks like he'll be a staple of the Strikeforce 205 division for quite a while.
