Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal faces Emanuel Newton for the second time at Bellator 106. The first time Newton wrecked him with a spinning back fist KO and Mo is still angry at Newton and at the fans. Mo spoke to MMA Weekly and here are some highlights:
"I don't go to that many websites. For what? So I can go read a bunch of stuff from fans who don't know (expletive)?
"What are they gonna tell me about fighting? How can a (expletive) tell me about my jab when he's never thrown a jab before?
"Let's be real. That's like me saying, ‘Hey, you're frying that chicken wrong,' when I ain't ever fried a chicken in my life. Or, ‘Hey, you shouldn't be cooking ribs that way,' when I've never cooked ribs before. Or what about a pool? ‘That pool needs chlorine,' when I have no idea what I'm talking about.
"They live on the internet," he continues. "I have a life. I got family. I got friends. I got places to go. I don't spend time lollygagging and posting on message boards. I'm better than that.
"If (hardcore music fans) got offended by (Mo's comments about Newton being a skinhead), who cares?" said Lawal with a chuckle. "If all 15 people in the hardcore movement got offended - or 100 - who cares? I don't even know about it. If they want to get mad, they can come and try and ‘mosh pit' on me."
Mo, a life-long pro-wrestling fan, has certainly pulled off an effective heel turn.
