It's a Thursday night in the fight capital of the world, and one of the most polarizing figures in mixed martial arts is thinking about video games. Not Call of Duty first-person shooter home-console variety, but the 16-bit arcade classic type. "It doesn't matter which one we pick," Muhammed Lawal says in a tone thick with confidence.

Twelve days ago, former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson vaulted up a weight class and challenged a goliath blue-chip prospect on a whim. The size difference was immense from the outset, but a funny thing happened: Henderson methodically wore down the giant then tapped him in the later rounds. David beat Goliath, and though Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal missed the opening stanzas of the fight, he caught the end -- the good part. Afterward, in a moment of candor, Henderson told the cameras th read news >>

King Mo Lawal is apparently a big fan of Bellator's new regime with Scott Coker in charge. We all knew that Muhammed Lawal wasn't a fan of Bjorn Rebney - calling him a "d**k-rider" after losing a decision to Quinton Jackson at Bellator 120 proved that. Lawal does appreciate what new president Scott Coker brings to the table though. Coker has always been more interested in fun matchmaking than anything, and gave Lawal the chance to go back to Heavyweight this weekend to take on Cheick Kongo at Be read news >>

The end of the Bjorn Rebney era in Bellator arrived in June 2014, at least officially, when Viacom executives rang the death knell on the tournament format and cast Rebney off into his self-imposed exile to Mexico (or somewhere else far away from watchful eyes). But in many ways, the discord within Bellator began much sooner -- just think of Muhammed Lawal's infamous explosion on Bellator's first and only pay-per-view. You remember. Things were said, mics were cut, accusations of "dick-riding" w read news >>

Muhammed Lawal may be Bellator's main light heavyweight attraction, but the former Strikeforce berserker had some very interesting comments regarding Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) latest signing, CM Punk. While you would likely expect "King Mo" to lambast the organization for signing a former pro-wrestler with zero mixed martial arts (MMA) experience, Lawal actually had some praise for Punk's work ethic. Prior to his heavyweight bout against Cheick Kongo at Bellator 134, Lawal spoke wit read news >>
