    Ooh. I think it's a little early that fight, but Mo seems to be jumping in with both feet, so maybe...

    Yea not right away, but maybe a few fights down the line.

    I see a warm up fight for henderson, then a fight with mousasi. Then if jacare beats lindland and one more mw set that fight up. Then after all of that he faces lawal.

    So for me hendersons ideal line up:
    warm up
    mousasi
    jacare
    lawal

    Also maybe just maybe if cung le fights consistently that would be another interesting fight.

    I thought Lawal trained with Hendo? and I forgot about Jacare, damn this maybe a good year for strikeforce, at least with the hardcore fans
    Like Billy Jacks' soul attack, I'm one Injun you wont forget.

    Im not sure about lawals exact training. I know ryan parsons is basically managing him and running his training. Parsons was part of team quest but then split off.

    If i remember correctly lawal is doing his boxing at lava boxing, and kind of free lancing working with different guys and coaches for his bjj, striking, and sparring.

    Im sure zag could add more insight.

    vs. Khlaidov-Who?

    And I don't say that trying to claim there are many more better options in the UFC. I know in the Sherdog article they talked about him fighting Fedor...which is a TERRIBLE idea.
    Every guy here is more competitive than all the non title fights Hendo had in the UFC IMO.

    Palhares? Jacare is a bit better.
    Rich Franklin? Lawler is as tough of a match up with more power in his hands.
    Bisping? Misake is tougher than Bisping? He beat Hendo 1x already.

    The only fight we can brand a superfight at the moment is with Mousasi. His stock is about as high as Machida's at the moment. All these fights are possible. I personally like a. Lawler fight. Good hands and good TD defense. Action guaranteed.
    I pictured you as that guy Gaylord in Showboat, passing up taxis to walk because he's broke and playing it off as if it's the doctor's advice. - Clmetal

    Lawal has been working out with Werdum in bjj and Manhoef in striking.

    here is the purefight interview with ryan parsons in june. here he says that his boxing coach is justin fortune and his muay thai is mel menor.

    He also worked with dean lister for bjj as well as some time with the nog brothers.

    [ame="http://www.purefight.org/videos/speaker/1912-mo-lawal/125531-ryan-parsons"]Ryan Parsons | June 11 on Purefight[/ame]

    I also found this article which states:
    Lawal is currently doing his training in California alongside fighters such as Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Benji Radach, Fabricio Werdum and others.

    Nog trains mostly in florida though so im not sure how often that happens.

    Completely disagree that Lawler is better then Franklin. I can't stress how much I disagree.
