"Bolt got beat by Tyson Gay last year in the 100-meter dash and Usain Bolt was unbeatable at the 100-meter dash at one point. I saw the great Kobayashi get beat by Joey Chestnut at the hot dog eating contest. I saw Aleksandr Karelin get beat by Rulon Gardner. I saw Mike Tyson get defeated be Buster Douglas. I've seen everyone who was supposed to be unbeatable get beat. So, there is no such thing as unbeatable. Styles make match-up's you know what I'm saying? I think Jon Jones is a great fighter and I think Rashad is a great fighter, but I think of styles and if Rashad has a great plan he can win. Same thing with Jon Jones, if he has the fight game plan he can win. But, I'm going with my boy Rashad, I've known him since college. That's my brother right there."

Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Muhammed Lawal, who is currently recovering from life-threatening staph infection, gives his thoughts to Choke Out TV on the upcoming anticipated title fight between Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 205-pound champion Jon Jones and Rashad Evans at UFC 145 on April 21, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia. "King Mo" feels that Evans has the tools to best the young phenom and declares that no one is unbeatable in any realm of sports, drawing comparisons to some of the biggest upsets in sports history including Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson, Rulon Gardener, who at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games upset the seemingly untouchable Aleksander Karelin, who has won 24 gold medals in Greco-Roman wrestling and is considered the greatest wrestler of all time. In classic ‘King Mo" form, he even goes as far as referencing Joey Chestnut defeating the great Takeru Kobayashi, who won six consecutive hot dog eating contests at the world famous "Nathan's Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest." Jones, throughout his young, yet impressive career, has looked "unbeatable," but as the events mentioned before, Lawal feels confident that another great upset in sports history will go down in the "ATL," do you?
