Manager Of 'King Mo' Says Fighter Received Non-Anabolic Steroid Injection

When "King Mo" Muhammed Lawal tested positive for steroids after his fight against Lorenz Larkin at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine it seemed to come out of nowhere for everyone involved. While Lawal is planning to appeal the test, his manager, Mike Kogan, has reiterated that they don't understand the positive test but does recall a non-anabolic injection.

Via USA Today:

"Both of us are very surprised by these results," Kogan told USA TODAY. "Neither of us has ever heard of this drug. ... We honestly have no clue where this came from."

Other than food and drink, the only substances that Lawal takes on a regular basis are iron supplements, Kogan said. When Lawal had fluid drained from his knee a few weeks before the bout, he did receive an injection of a non-anabolic steroid, Kogan said.

Despite the appeal it would be unexpected for the "B" sample to provide a different result than the positive received on the "A" sample.
