(Getty)After being released by Strikeforce, former light heavyweight champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal has signed with both TNA professional wrestling and Bellator. Both groups have a partnership with Spike, making this deal possible.
"This deal is a dream come true for me," Lawal said. "Bjorn [Rebney, Bellator CEO] and Dixie [Carter, TNA president] have given me the opportunity to engage in my two great loves, mixed martial arts and professional wrestling, at the same time. And, to have it all on Spike TV is really Buttercream icing on a big ole cake — not that whipped cream stuff either!"
He will begin appearing with TNA Impact this summer. When Bellator moves from MTV2 to Spike in 2013, Lawal will return to mixed martial arts.Read More »from ‘King Mo’ Lawal signs one-of-a-kind deal with TNA wrestling and Bellator (VIDEO)
