Full Contact Fighter’s “The Daily Takedown”: Chael Sonnen, “King Mo” In The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time
By Joshua Molina
Time for Chael Sonnen to Call Vince McMahon.
No amount of money will be worth getting knocked out three times in a row.
Sonnen is a showman and his best days are behind him. The brilliant trash talk works when you win now and then. It doesn’t work when you can’t make it out of the first round.
Wanderlei Silva will knock Sonnen out. That’s not the way he wants to go out. It’s respectable to lose to Jon Jones and Anderson Silva, the best MMA fighters in the world. Get KO’d by Wanderlei Silva at this stage of his career?
That’s a one-way ticket to a tarnished legacy.
. . . “King Mo” Lawal made his pro wrestling in-ring debut last night in an untelevised dark match for Ohio Valley Wrestling.
Mo wrestled Wednesday night at the Davis Arena in Louisville, winning in his debut against Austin Bradley. After a short exchange, Mo arm-barred Bradley.
In a big mistake, King Mo must now take on Seth Petruzelli in Bellator on June 19. Petruzelli, of course, KO’d Kimbo Slice, on national television. If King Mo chooses to wrestle, he can win. If Mo chooses to stand with the Silverback, Petruzelli will turn him into Queen Mo very quickly.
King Mo’s career focus seems to have become unclear. Wrestling in untelevised matches? Fighting heavyweights with knockout power?
Like Sonnen, Mo can’t afford anymore KO losses right now.
