Former champ Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal cut from Strikeforce over an offensive Twitter remark.
Former Strikeforce champ Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal is really having a bad week. Lawal, who was recently been suspended and fined by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for testing positive for the steroid Drostanole, has just been cut from Strikeforce for making an offensive Twitter remark directed at a NSAC official.
“I honestly feel like Lundvall was a racist b—- asking me if I can read or speak english,” Lawal wrote. “Go on somewhere with that s—!!!” Lawal said on his Twitter account.Read the rest of the article »
After his cast was removed, Royce Gracie is now back in action and ready to face Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal at Strikeforce's September 10 tourney.
A light-heavyweight fight pitting Roger Gracie and former champion, Muhammed Lawal, has been rescheduled for the still-unannounced Strikeforce tournament on September 10. It was recently reported that Roger Gracie bowed out from his slated match against King Mo, due to a stress fracture that forced him into a cast. Fortunately, the cast was already removed and Royce Gracie is now back in action.
The venue for the Strikeforce September 10 event has not yet been announced. However, the Royce Gracie vs Muhammed Lawal match is anticipated to be part of the televised main card in Showtime.View Article Source »
Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal might be forced to take the wayside for nine months. He "will undergo knee surgery to replace both his anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee," according to his manager Ryan Parsons.
Lawal just came fresh from a title defeat to Rafael “Feijiao” Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Houston on Saturday after the former contender downed the collegiate wrestling champ with a series of knee strikes and a right hand. The present light-heavyweight champ forced out a third-round referee stoppage afterwards.
That is where Lawal abruptly stopped for the scorecards, as he is used to topping those. It was in the same brawl that Lawal incurred his injury. His surgery will take place next Tuesday in Los Angeles.
After an examination by a physician last Monday, Parson spoke the news, “Mo wanted to take one more fight, but we decided that this injury should be attended to first.” This is not the first time the 29-year-old former champ will undergo surgery. He also went through an ACL surgery after injuring his ligament in the first round of March 2009’s Sengoku “Seventh Battle”.View Article Source »
“I just need to make some adjustments; that’s all. He fought a hell of a fight. I’ll come back stronger. I’m not worried. Losses always make true champions stronger.” - Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal
Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal got caught up in a bashing battle against Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Houston last Saturday at the Toyota Center. A highly regarded wrestler, Lawal was expected by the audience to exert a grappling-heavy strategy. However, Feijao was able to fought off a number of take downs and remained standing in the first round. Though King Mo could not take the fight down to the mat, he was able to give Feijao some digging body shots in the second round. But in the midst of another body barrage, the Brazilian fighter unleashed a trio of knees that clearly hurt the King. As the champ fell backwards, Cavalcante puts him down with an overhand right. Lawal gave a single-leg take down attempt, but Feijao was too strong that he was able to batter King Mo with punches and elbows. John McCarthy, the referee of the event, stepped in at 1:14 at round three to stop the fight.View Article Source »
King Mo went down the pedestal and admitted he is the underdog.
Muhammed Lawal will get inside Strikeforce cage on August 21. He is going to be on promotion for the light-heavyweight champion, strongly suggesting a title defense. But those who think that King Mo and Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante were at same level, he immediately disagreed.
“If anyone should be a favorite, it should be Feijao,'” he said on a Monday conference call. “He has a name, he’s been fighting longer than me. I remember watching him on Showtime, in Elite XC and in the IFL. He should be the favorite. Due to marketing, people see me as the favorite. He’s the favorite, I’m the underdog even though I’m the champ.”Read the rest of the article »
