He returned to competition just over a month later, securing a TKO victory over Fabio Silva, and was victorious in January 2009 against Yukiya Naito. Lawal defeated the current light heavyweight King of Pancrase Ryo Kawamura at Sengoku on March 2009 even after suffering an ACL Tear in the first round it was Lawal’s only fight so far in his
career to go to decision.

In the mixed martial arts world Lawal goes by the name of King Mo which has made him very popular with the Japanese MMA fans. He got the name King Mo from his friend Kami Barzini who told Lawal, “once you do what you gotta do, you’ll be a king” and the name has stuck ever since.

Lawal’s fight was the main event of the main card where he faced Mark Kerr, instead of the originally planned match up with mixed martial arts legend Don Frye.[6] Lawal quickly scored a takedown and pounded Kerr unconscious, winning the fight (and sending Kerr’s mouthpiece flying across the ring) twenty five Cheap Ray Bans seconds in the first round.
