Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

King Mo: Still Talkin’

(Props: FightersOnlyMagazine)

"I’m hoping in April I get a chance to fight Mousasi next. That’s the fight I want…I know I’ll put on a show and I’ll win that fight…Anything can happen in MMA when you’re dealing with two guys that train hard and want it. So, I’m not worried about the fans [doubting me] ’cause the fans ain’t fighters. They’re fans, they just watch. So they should just sit back and watch in April and see what happens. King Coker, I hope he can give me that fight…I don’t know if I deserve it yet, but if the fight makes sense, let’s make it happen…

When I had the opportunity to fight Travis Wiuff, I watched his footage twice and I was like ‘got him.’ And I have that feeling right now. I’ve watched Mousasi’s fights, a lot of his fights, and he’s been fighting for a while, and I think he’s hit his peak. He won’t improve too much…I think he’s been winning off of just being a smart fighter and more technical than other fighters. I want it ’cause I know I’mma win it."

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal invites the haters to keep hating in this recent video interview, where he makes his intentions known regarding Gegard Mousasi‘s Strikeforce light-heavyweight strap. With a record of 6-0 over mostly uninspiring competition, it seems like Mo should have to complete an intermediate step between fighting Mike Whitehead and fighting the Last Gypsy. But with Strikeforce’s 205-pound class as thin as it is, Mo’s personality could make him marketable enough to sell the fight. Still, I wonder what Lawal could have possibly seen in Mousasi’s fight tapes that would make him think "got him." For the record, Mo’s Wikipedia page currently lists his division as "Moneyweight."

Mousasi wins via spinning back kick to the forehead (blunt force trauma) after which King idiot wakes up and calls out Fedor. Priceless.

"I think he's been winning off of just being a smart fighter and more technical than other fighters."

Mo's right, that's a pretty cheesy way to win fights. Fuck technical skills!

He's deluding himself bigtime.

I think Gegard would probably win BUT! it would def be a fun fight to watch.

Mo could definitely sell the fight, but lord would Mousasi kick the crap out of him.

Maybe he can fight Kimbo at moneyweight?

The most hilarious part about the whole video is that he says "When I had the opportunity to fight Travis Wiuff, I watched his footage twice and I was like 'got him." Travis Wiuff is fucking iron man hah he has like 70 pro fights, you may have only watched film on 2 different occasions but I bet they were some pretty long sessions and if not King Mo is an even bigger idiot then the guy who sprayed Rockstar all over the ring a few weeks ago...oh wait.

Sorry fellas but King Mo has this one in the bag. Either he will blind Gegard with the spray from a shaken up can of rockstar, or by a flying colemillermura from inverted reverse triangle. Or maybe a combination of both, though not necessarily in that order.

I can't wait for Mo to get exposed. The cans he has been destroying lately have made his head swell way too big. What is he most proud of? Kerr maybe? His wins are a who's who of used to be's and nobodies. I opened up my mailbox today and saw Gegard's mug staring back at me. Fight! has been on a roll lately.

Geez if he wants the moneyweight belt he better get a match with Rashad. $375k for the main event at UFC 108?

I hope his cardio isn't affectedby the cut from moneyweight to light heavy.

I'm sure Mousasi would win this fight by being more "technical". And by technical I mean that when King Mo came at him with his hands down and his chin out Gegard would technically knock his fucking head off. Should be a good scrap can't wait to witness this homicide.

"I'll win that fight...Anything can happen in MMA"

Sounds a bit confusing to me

Mo' Mo!
You know what I think ... he should have a shot at Gegard and see if Mousasi's nick name "The Dreamcatcher" materializes with King Mo's first loss.
Either way it should be a FFF.
