Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight champion Muhammed King Mo Lawal has had a tumultuous 3 months, to say the least.Following a resounding victory over Lorenz Larkin on January 7th, Lawal tested positive for steroids, resulting in a 9-month suspension & 39,000 fine by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Shortly after the NSAC hearing, Lawal accused Commissioner Pat Lundvall of racism via Twitter - culminating in his release from the Strikeforce organization. All the while, Lawal has been battling a life-threatening Staph infection, a result of knee surgery to repair a torn ACL.Inside Fight Sports caught up with King Mo to recap his emotional start to 2012.
On Nevada State Athletic Commission Pat LundvallWhen it comes down to it, Im going to be real. I was out of line calling the women the B-word and I was wrong for that.
On fighting staph infection and the latest on his knee and rehabilitationI get the chance on focusing on healing, being positive, rehab and come back here and train, I miss the gym I have two open holes in my knee with tubes in them.
