Coach: In Camp, ‘King Mo’ Took Down Lyoto Machida Repeatedly

By Staff Apr 29, 2013
Team Takedown coach Steven Wright, on “Beatdown,” discussing Muhammed Lawal’s wrestling ability:

“He was brought out to help [Lyoto] Machida get ready for Jon Jones, and he took Machida down so much in the first two days that they decided they were going to go with a different game plan. [Lawal] just kind of sat there and enjoyed a week vacation in Brazil because they didn’t need him anymore. He’s a guy who is that skilled. If he gets a hold of you, you’re going down.”
