Strikeforce Results: King Mo knocks out Roger Gracie at the end of Round 1Posted on September 10, 2011, 10:28 PM by Anton Gurevich
Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion King Mo made a successful return to the cage with a vicious knockout victory over Roger Gracie in the main card action of Strikeforce: Kharitonov vs. Barnett.
The fight had a slow opening, as no one of the fights were able to connect with their strikes. But with just 23 seconds before the end of Round 1, Lawal unleashed fury with a strong right hook that sent Roger Gracie with his face down to the canvas. Muhammed Lawal punished Gracie with another strike, as the referee rushed in to save the Brazilian from further punishment.
King Mo is now 8-1 in MMA, with sights on getting back into Top 10 Light Heavyweight rankings. In his post-fight interview, Lawal called out Feijao Calvacante for a rematch from last year's Strikeforce: Houston.
