Travis Wiuff confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that his new opponent for the upcoming Sengoku 5 event in Tokyo this weekend will be recent Team Quest (Murrieta) acquisition Muhammad “Mo” Lawal.

Lawal has an impressive freestyle amateur wrestling background, with accolades including the 2002 NCAA Division II National Championship, and First Place finishes at the 2006 U.S. Open and 2007 Pan-American Games.

Most recently the native Coloradan finished second at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, just missing out on an opportunity to compete in recent Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

This will be Mo’s first MMA bout, as he joins Team Quest (Gresham) lightweight Ryan “The Lion” Schultz on the card.

I've followed Mo's freestyle wrestling career for the last several years. It was a bit of an upset that he didn't make the Olympic team this year (and was only a few seconds from the win when it was snatched away from him). He is very explosive, has got a great killer instinct, and a great personality for MMA.

I know he's been planning on throwing his hat in the ring for a while, so this should be exciting!
