"King Mo" Lawal hopes ZUFFA stages a UFC vs. Strikeforce eventPosted on September 11, 2011, 11:08 AM by Joey Santosus
Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Muhammed "Blackuraba" Lawal, who defeated the previously unbeaten Roger Gracie Saturday night, looks back on the knockout victory and discusses the pressures of joining a new camp. Now a part of the American Kickboxing Academy, which produced four winners in four fights on the card, Lawal admits that, as the "new guy," he didn't want to be the one to lose.
"King Mo" Lawal
"I just thought it was my time to do something and shine. There's pressure on me because I went to AKA (American Kickboxing Academy). You know, AKA is a proven camp and I didn't want to be the guy that came in, the new guy, and lose. I didn't care about the pressure from ZUFFA and it being my first fight back, but I joined a new camp and I wanted to win for my camp and win for my people...Hopefully, they have like a UFC vs. Strikeforce event, and then we could all just be UFC. How about that? I just want to go where everybody is going to. It seems like everybody is going to the UFC, the UFC is cool."
