King Mo: Jon Jones Isn't Great Until He Beats Me | MMA NEWs

June 2, 2012 2:24 pm by Jose Garcia

“King Mo” Lawal has been in the news a lot lately. His recent signing with Bellator and his dual signing with the TNA Wrestling company made head waves a few weeks ago. The dual signing came to a shock to most because it is rare for a fighter to compete in both, entertainment wrestling and MMA at the same time.

Although Lawal is signed with Bellator, he has always had his sites set on one individual, Jon Jones.

Speaking with FIGHTHUBTV recently, Lawal was proposed a question on how he would fare against the UFC light-heavyweight champ Jones.

“I’ve been saying [that I’m the one to beat Jon Jones] for myself. I’ve been hearing it from the fans,” said Lawal. “The thing is, I feel like I can beat anybody. Anybody in MMA I feel like I can beat ’em. And it’s not just Jones, it’s anybody.”

Lawal has been no stranger to the spotlight and with his recent outburst he is bound to stir up some controversy.

“He gets the credit he deserves. I wouldn’t say he’s the greatest ever just yet, because, you know, it’s hard to label someone great,” he said. “Ali was great because Ali was at a high level for years. Mayweather is great because he’s been at a high level for years. … But Jon Jones is a great fighter and he could potentially end up being one of the greatest ever. To me it doesn’t matter, I feel like no one’s great until they beat me.”

Who knows, maybe someday we will get to see them square up and fight. One can only hope.
