Iomega, an EMC company and a global leader in data protection, today announced that several of its marquee storage solution products are in the corner of Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, the high-flying mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter preparing for the Strikeforce World Light Heavyweight title bout this Saturday night.
King Mo, an undefeated MMA star (6-0) and two-time NCAA All-American wrestler, will fight Strikeforce World Light Heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi (28-2-1) on April 17 in Nashville, Tennessee. King Mo’s fight will be one of three world title fights on the card April 17 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The event is scheduled to air live on the CBS Television Network.
“It’s a real kick for the Iomega team to know King Mo is using award-winning Iomega products as he prepares for his title fight,” said Jonathan Huberman, President of Iomega and the Consumer and Small Business Products Division of EMC. “King Mo is an up-and-coming MAA star with a real hunger to capture the crown that would put him among the world’s best fighters. Protecting King Mo’s data from everything from a low punch to an unexpected drop, as well as allowing him to serve up digital content on his big screen TV and the rest of his personal network, is another great example of how people are utilizing easy-to-use Iomega products in their digital life.”
In preparation for the title fight, King Mo is critiquing his recorded training sessions with the Iomega® ScreenPlay™ Director HD Media Player, a feature-rich HD media player that makes it easy to browse your home network for content to watch on the TV. King Mo is also using the new Iomega® iConnect Wireless Data Station, a powerful yet inexpensive network device that provides a simple way to bring all of your USB storage into your network, including Flash drives and USB-powered portable hard drives. Finally, King Mo is sporting all his important video clips, images, music and other digital files on the 500GB* Iomega® eGo™ BlackBelt Portable Hard Drive, one of the most rugged portable hard drives available today.
“The title fight this Saturday in Nashville will be one of the biggest nights of my life,” said King Mo. “I’ve been training extremely hard during the day and studying film at night, which is why the Iomega products have been such a plus for me. It’s great to be able to fine tune my form and technique by studying my training sessions and other content on my big screen TV in the livingroom, as well as having access to all my digital data whether I am at home or on the road. The versatility and dependability of the Iomega products is perfect for my personal life and the aggressive professional goals I’ve set for myself.”
