Tidbit of the Day: ‘King Mo’ Was in Talks to Rematch ‘Feijao’ for Vacant SF LHW Strap Prior to Steroid Suspension


(“Don’t look yet, but tell me if she’s looking at me.”)

It looks like Muhammed Lawal’s positive  steroid test  may have netted him a much bigger punishment than the fine and one-year timeout levied on him by the Nevada State Athletic Commission; he may also have missed out on a chance at redemption against the only fighter to beat him as well as a chance to regain the Strikeforce light heavyweight title.

According to a report by Tatame, Rafael Cavalcante was in discussions with Strikeforce to again face Lawal before “King Mo” was caught pissing dirty following his win over Lorenz Larkin earlier this month at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine in Las Vegas. “Feijao” says the bout would have been for the light heavyweight title he lost to Dan Henderson, since Hendo relinquished the belt when he signed with Strikeforce’s sister company, the Ultimate Fighting Championship late last year. So what he’s saying is that basically the belt signifies who is in second place in the Strikeforce 205-pound division.

It’s unlikely that Mo will still be in contention when he returns from his suspension next January — that is if the Zuffa decides to keep him around if Strikeforce hasn’t dissolved by then, so this may have been the 31-year-old’s only shot at the belt.

Since you couple guys thing the belt is worthless, and there are contenders in the UFC that could snap it up, I guess we will never know since that are not allowed to fight inside other promotions for their belts.
.
We may have discussed this the other day, but I still think the UFC fighters are for the most part overblown, and what you see on TV is very expensive hype changing perceptions.
.
If you are considered a hardcore MMA fan, then all those millions of other less core fans still think SF and Bellator have nearly equivalent talent...surely not as popular, but then tell me how much Zuffa spends on SF marketing, compared to UFC marketing. Zilch
.
I'd say they pay nothing more than they can squeeze for free - or written per their contract with Showtime.

The LHW division will probably be dissolved in a year as SF makes the process of turning in to the next WEC.

I would even say "2nd place" is a bit generous. Their is more then one 205 pound contender that could snap that title up in the UFC.

@Xeno-I thought we went over this yesterday? It is pretty much a worthless belt, just like there welterweight and middleweight belts. Essentially whoever wins these belts is the interim champ of that division. The same will go for Gils belt when he vacates and moves on to the big leagues.

This is like NOT finding out who came in second in the Little League World Series

You say Hendo relinquished the belt. You could have said he abandoned the belt, or he was called up and vacated the belt. Point is you give this piece the smell that the SF belt is worthless.

Not the case. Lets all not lose track of the fact that no one pays a penny extra to watch the SF fights.
