King Mo: “the takedowns were there all day.”

Newly crowned Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed Lawal speaks about performance over Gegard Mousasi in their title fight at Strikeforce “Nashville”.

Lawal, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:

“Whenever I faked, he covered up and the takedowns were there all day. If you watch his fights he’s never gone past three rounds. As a wrestler, I’ve been trained to grind and that’s what I did, just grind him down because I knew he had no conditioning. I knew he’d fade because I watched his films. F–K [the haters]. Everyone’s been doubting me my whole life. I’ve got the Bernard Hopkins mentality: It’s me against the world — and that’s how it’s gonna be the rest of my life.”
