King Mo Lawal To Face Przemyslaw Mysiala at Bellator 86
MMA Junkie reports that Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal (8-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) will face the debuting Przemyslaw Mysiala (16-7 MMA, 0-0 BFC) at Bellator 86 in an opening-round fight in Bellator’s eight-man Season 8 light-heavyweight tournament.
The event will take place at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma and will air on Spike Tv.
Lawal will be loaned out by Bellator to TNA Wrestling. He left Strikeforce earlier this year after a failed drug test and a battle with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. His only loss so far was to Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante, which ended Lawal’s title run.
Mysiala is a Polish fighter who was on a 6-1 run before losing to Jason Jone at BAMMA 9 in March. He has had fifteen stoppages on the European fight circuit, including nine submissions, in sixteen wins.
