  • When ‘King Mo’ Was Sick, Chael Sonnen Offered Help By: Sherdog.com Staff

    Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, on “Beatdown,” discussing Chael Sonnen:

    “When I was sick, Chael hit me up. He was like, ‘Mo, do you need help with your medical bills? I got you.’ He hit me up. He reached out to me. He sent me a text and then he called me. Chael checked up on me when I was sick. It meant a lot to me. When bad things happen, your true friends stick around. Chael was one of them that stuck around. I’d whoop somebody’s ass for Chael. That’s how real I am about that dude. I think what he did as far as talking trash, yeah, he talked trash. He did a great job. He made Anderson [Silva] a star. Anderson was already a star, but he made Anderson a crossover star. The reason why I say that, all of Anderson’s fights were blowouts. He pushed Anderson to the limit and made Anderson show that he’s a true champion by digging deep and coming from behind to win. Everyone looked at Anderson a lot different after he beat Chael. Everyone looked at Chael a lot different. Then Chael continued to sell the fight after that fight and made the other fight bigger. I guarantee you Anderson wouldn’t do no million buys on pay-per-view without Chael.”

  • For Lorenz Larkin, Loss to King Mo Made Sense After Positive Steroid Test By: Sherdog.com Staff




    Lorenz Larkin, on “Beatdown,” discussing his reaction to news that Muhammed Lawal had tested positive for an anabolic steroid after their fight:

    “My corner always asks me, ‘How did he feel?’ No matter if I win or lose, they always ask me, ‘How’d you feel? How’d he feel?’ And all this other stuff. All I could tell them was that I couldn’t do anything [against Lawal]. I physically couldn’t do anything. I felt like a little kid and his dad was holding him down and he couldn’t do anything. It didn’t make sense until after everything came out. It just left a sour taste in my mouth.”

  • ‘King Mo’ Lawal: ‘I’m Not a Slave to a Brand’




    Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, on “Beatdown,” discussing his exit from Zuffa-owned Strikeforce and his signing with TNA Wrestling and Bellator:

    “I’m not a slave to a brand. I fight for who I want. … Zuffa has their thing. I’m doing my thing. I’m not going to worry about what they’ve got to do. I’ve got to worry about what I’ve got to do. Some people say, ‘You’re going to a B league.’ They can think that, but what are they going to say if Hector Lombard happens to beat Anderson Silva? What can they say? It’s not about the organization. It’s about the fighters. People, a lot of them, the groupie fans don’t get that. It’s about the fighters, and anybody can get beat by anybody.”
