In what is being billed as a match to determine the "true knockout king", retired MMA fighter turned pro wrestler "King" Mo Lawal will face former MLW champion Low Ki at Fightland in Philadelphia, PA.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, February 1st and will be a TV taping for their Fusion TV show.
American Top Team founder and famed wrestling belt collector Dan Lambert will corner Lawal for the match. Lambert was heavily involved in the Impact Wrestling vs. ATT angle that lasted from late 2017 through early 2018 which saw him defeat James Storm in a career vs. career match.
Lawal retired from MMA in November after being knocked out in a bout for Bellator MMA. The 38-year-old walked out to the cage with an MLW t-shirt and shorts on and the following morning, they announced he had signed a deal with the organization to wrestle that night.
That match joins a card that includes:
- MLW World Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu vs. CIMA
- Tom Lawlor vs. Killer Kross
- MLW National Openweight Champion Alexander Hammerstone vs. T-Hawk
- Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Erick Stevens
- Brian Pillman Jr. vs. Jimmy Havoc (w/ Priscilla Kelly)
- Injustice (Jordan Oliver & Kotto Brazil) vs. Puma King & Gringo Loco
