Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal is done being humble


Props to MMA Fighting.

"I wasn't me. I thought I was going to win, but I tried to play all that humble sh-t. What it comes to is, that's not me. I know I'm the best, and I've got to be able to talk like I'm the best. I'm not going to do all that, 'Oh, he's a tough opponent' stuff. Not anymore. F--- that stuff. It doesn't work for me. I tried to do that so I wouldn't get this backlash, but it doesn't work for me. So now, people don't like me? F--- them. I thought he was tough, but I thought I was going to win. I think I gave him too much credit because I was trying to be humble. I mean, I thought I was humble from the get-go, but now I'm just going to keep it real, 100%. However I feel, I'm going to speak my mind. F--- holding my tongue, dog. Never again. .... You thought Chael Sonnen was bad? Just wait. I'm going to be like the black Archie Bunker."

Former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion "King Mo" Lawal tells us that now that he's tried being humble, it just doesn't work for him. Lawal grappled the title away from Gegard Mousasi before dropping it in his very first defense against Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Houston. He is currently rehabbing a knee injury that hampered him during the fight but that's not what he is focused on. Instead he's turned his attention to his mouth and how he decides to use it. Is that really a smart decision? Should he be more worried about improving his game inside the cage instead of outside it?
