M-1 Global Looks to "Breakthrough" with New Series
Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and Karl “Psycho” Amoussou are finally fighting stateside. M-1 Global announced “M-1 Global Presents Breakthrough” today, which will be headlined by Don “The Predator” Frye vs. Lawal and Amoussou vs. Nick “The Goat” Thompson.
According to M-1 Global V.P. of Talent Relations Apy Echteld, the series will bridge the gap between major shows like “M-1 Global Presents Affliction” and the company’s developmental series the M-1 Challenge by pairing two to four ‘name’ fighters on a card and filling it out with the best fighters from the M-1 Challenge. The card represents an important next step in M-1’s global plan and will air on HDNet.
The event, the first in a new series called “M-1 Breakthrough,” has been scheduled for Friday, Aug. 28 and will be held in conjunction with the International Mixed Martial Arts Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
