Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi is not bothered by Muhammed Lawal’s trash talk.

“This is the first time that I’m fighting someone that talks so much,” Mousasi (28-2-1) said of Lawal (6-0) on Monday’s Savage Dog Show. “In the beginning, it really annoyed me. Now, I understand it’s part of the game…It doesn’t bother me now.”

The Armenian-Dutch fighter will face the gifted American wrestler on Saturday at Strikeforce “Nashville”.
