Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal Doesn’t Care If He Never Fights For The UFC

Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal can be seen on Bellator and TNA Wrestling, but there’s one place he’s not headed and that’s the UFC.

“I don’t give a damn about the UFC,” said Lawal on Darce Side Radio. “I just go where I’m wanted and respected. Bellator is where it’s at. I don’t care about the UFC. I don’t care if I ever fight for the UFC.”

After a stint in Strikeforce, which saw Lawal win their light heavyweight championship, he was released while serving a one year suspension for steroids. The release happened after Lawal made comments towards a female member of the athletic commission.

He would sign with Bellator and made quick work in the opening round of the Season 8 light heavyweight tournament. Bellator 90, which was yesterday February 21, didn’t have the same results. There was a first round knockout, but it was Lawal who suffered defeat this time. Emanuel Newton took the KO with a spinning back fist.

Now that Lawal is out of the tournament, his next step is not known. He’s not appeared for TNA Wrestling since October.
