King Mo Lawal KOs Mike Whitehead at Strikeforce Evolution

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal earned the biggest win of his brief MMA career on Saturday night in San Jose, defeating Mike Whitehead by first-round TKO at Strikeforce Evolution.

The fight was mostly a tentative boxing match for the first three minutes, but Lawal ended it suddenly and violently, landing a hard right punch directly onto Whitehead's chin and knocking him to the canvas, and then pouncing on him, punching him a couple of more times until he went out, and forcing the referee to step in and stop the fight.
After the fight Lawal boasted that he'll fight anyone -- "I fight where the money's at" -- and sounded eager to get back into the cage soon. He's one of Strikeforce's best up-and-coming stars, and he should have a big year in 2010.

Lawal improved his record to 6-0, while Whitehead fell to 24-7.
