In a night filled with brutal knockouts, Muhammed Lawal knew he had to do something special to stand out at Rizin's inaugural event. And that's exactly what he did.
On loan from Bellator, Lawal laid waste to his first-round match-up in Rizin's heavyweight tournament, knocking BAMMA's Brett McDermott out clean with a devastating series of right hands midway through the opening stanza.
