After training with Drysdale, he says he’s unafraid of Roger’s Jiu-Jitsu

King Mo's last fight was a loss, and he has but one goal: to win at Strikeforce. Phto: Esther Lin/Strikeforce.

In the lead-up to his Cincinnati, Ohio, showdown with Roger Gracie and after training in Holland and Las Vegas with Ray Sefo (ex-K-1 fighter), Robert Drysdale (ADCC) and Floyd Mayweather Sr. (boxing), Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal’s confidence seems to have reached the stratosphere as he goes into his Strikeforce outing on the 10th.

In a chat with our colleagues at, the American muay thai and wrestling expert expressed certainty that he’s not going to end up on bottom. By not ending up on bottom, he’s convinced he can’t lose.

“I might land on bottom if I slip. But I’m not afraid of his Jiu-Jitsu at all,” said the hard-nosed fighter who has been away from the cage for a year now. “He has a great closed guard, but when you hit them they tend to open up. I’m not worried, except about making weight. I know I’m going to win this fight. I don’t know if it will be by stoppage or ground and pound. Maybe I’ll submit him,” said the 30-year-old, who has only lost once in eight fights – to Rafael Feijão in August 2010.
