Former NCAA champ Muhammad Lawal makes a statement with upset over Travis Wiuff at Sengoku


A new mixed martial arts star may have been born Saturday night in Tokyo, Japan during World Victory Road’s Sengoku 5 at the National Yoyogi Stadium. Replacing an injured Roger Gracie against former PRIDE and UFC veteran Travis “Diesel” Wiuff on less than a week’s notice, former NCAA Division II freestyle wrestling champion Muhammad “Mo” Lawal pulled off a dramatic upset win over Wiuff following a first round TKO.

Training out of Team Quest in Temecula, Calif. on a part-time basis the past year, Lawal had been splitting his time between preparing for his MMA debut while also working out at the U.S. Olympic training center in Colorado Springs, Colo. in an attempt to qualify for the Beijing Olympics in the 84 kilogram weight class.

They are going to have to fix that fight in the secondary league because they have Travis as the winner. Mods can you please look into that . You have to watch that Cyborg fight his elbow gets totally dislocated

Some one should tell the mods they may have gotton the fight wrong on secondary league if Lawal did in fact win.

I didn't see it but it says in the secondary league that Wiuff one. This article disagrees though so idk.

I picked him for the upset

Cyborg has got to be the scariest looking mofo in MMA. If the guy could get by on looks alone, he'd be undefeated.

Just sucks that Bahadurzada had to celebrate like when Nate Diaz won his fight over Manny.
That elbow is disgusting though.

Word. Every time I pick Schultz I lose, just like Chuck Liddell.

My score will change a little bit when the mods change the Wiuff/Lawal fight.

Here comes King Mo everyone.....
