King Mo: “We’re just waiting for Strikeforce to die.”


“The thing is, what’s the point? What’s the point of having the belt when it’s been vacated, and the person who vacated it is still fighting somewhere else within the same umbrella, but not the same organization?… It feels a little weird, because it’s not the same. It’s like a cancer patient, like a dying cancer patient. That’s how I feel like the organization is. We’re just waiting for [Strikeforce] to die, to pass. As long as I can get my fights in and they’re still around, I want to get them in.”

Former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion, King Mo Lawal, tells mmafighting.com’s Ariel Helwani that the value of the Strikeforce title has declined and he is merely waiting for the promotion to die.

While the ZUFFA brass still pitches their “Business as usual” line, is anyone buying it?
