Vitor Belfort, Bobby Lashley, Brett Rogers, Tom Erickson, Jeff Monson, Don Frye, and even... Tank Abbott?!

Well, now you can add Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal to the list of fighters that want to step in for Josh Barnett to fight Fedor Emelianenko at Affliction “Trilogy” on Aug. 1.

And who can blame him? According to a report from Dave Meltzer of Yahoo! Sports, multiple sources say that Affliction is dangling a $500,000 carrot in front of potential opponents.

Rogers, Monson or Mo are the only people on the list that should be put in there, I am sorry but Belfort is waaay to small and I would rather see Belfort fight another MW match and Fedor not get any help when it comes to weight, give him a heavy weight!!!!

I dont think he would win.

but I think Mo would be a beter replacement then Vitor would...he is strong and has really good wreslting...and could make things interesteing for a couple rounds........maybe.

I would pick Mo or Monson as the best replacement.

I cannot think of anyone that is available that has chance in hell of winning this I just hate fights where one guy is obviously smaller. I wish Overeem was not hurt but I would be surprised if Strikeforce would have let him do it anyway.

Mo is about the same size as Vitor.
