“King Mo” Heads To Vegas For NSAC Hearing On March 27

There’s an old saying that reminds us, ‘out of site out of mind’, but some things don’t go away that easily.

For former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, he must now face the music from his failed drug screening for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PED’s) following his most recent professional contest.

The former champ faces a possible one-year suspension and a monetary fine for the infraction and will likely get his January 7 victory over Lorenz Larkin ruled a no-contest.

“Mo” was flagged as a violator when the NSAC discovered traces of the anabolic Drostanolone in his urine sample. Drostanolone is a banned substance in all 45-MMA sanctioning US states.

For his part Lawal maintains his innocence claiming that the substance was in an over the counter supplement and that he was unaware was pulled off the shelves. He was first prompted to take the pills due to a nagging knee injury in hopes of a speedy recovery.

The supplement to blame was “S-Mass Lean Gainer” and even though they may be able to prove the tainted supplements as the cause for “Mo’s” positive test result it is unlikely that the NSAC will sympathize.

We will update this story on the 27th when Mo faces the jury and let you guys know the final outcome of his punishment.

  1. UFC VIDEOS says:

    PED, too common of a theme in MMA nowadays.

  2. Anthony says:

    Every sportsperson drug test response is ‘I was given an over the counter supplement – I didn’t know!’.

    Won’t work, and he will be suspended.

      I’m not saying it will work and I’m not saying he’s being truthful, but his story makes sense. He bought the pills over the counter legally and they were banned thereafter. They were pulled from shelves because if you read the ingredients, the steroids aren’t in it, but turn to Drostanolone after ingestion. It was the pill company’s way of selling legal steroids. We’ll never know the truth. Comments?

        my opinion he is a smart liar…he came up with a very smart story…what u saying i dnt know if true,,maybe i dont know newest shit…but last i heard he was talking with bas on that mma show saying that something he had was banned after he purchased it..but he did not have tested and wanted to have itt tested…if this is the case if he can actually comeup with this banned shit an they tezt it and comes true he should be let off….howeveer he is a fighter and i think these guys research the shit they take to help them train pretty well so he prob knew anyways…anytime something like this they will just banned him to be safe
