King Mo Lawal

Following his Bellator 131 win over Joe Vedepo, King Mo stated that he would like to fight Tito Ortiz next, who notched a win over Stephan Bonnar in the main event of the card.

Ortiz told King Mo to ‘get in line’, and left it at that. Shortly after the fight, the pair engaged in a Twitter beef (See that HERE).

Now King Mo is taking the offense, and spoke to MMAJunkie about his desire to fight Ortiz.

“He posted pictures of two gorillas fighting saying it’s me vs. Quinton (Jackson). I kept the photo. I’m like, ‘This dude thinks he’s slick, but I’m going to check him. I’m going to find the right time to check him,’ so I kept it on my phone.

“I didn’t want to say something to him during the fight week, but I thought after the fights were over with it would be the perfect time to say something to him. We’ve seen how quiet he was. He can’t really say nothing.”

“People think, ‘Mo’s trying to start something.’ I’m like, ‘No, this dude starting something by mentioning my name.’ If you’ve seen every interview I’ve done prior to this incident where they ask about Tito, I’ve said good things. I never said anything bad about him, period, because I knew he didn’t want to fight me. But as soon as he opened his mouth and mentioned me and talked my name, then I was like, ‘All right, if you’re going to talk the talk, then walk the walk.’”

“I’m pretty sure Spike’s interested, but I don’t think Tito’s really that interested. You look at his answers and he’s just fake and bogus. He thinks he’s a tough guy, but he’s really not.

“He’s starting to say, ‘You’re ghetto and blah blah.’ OK, whatever, you can say what you want. You learn from an ass whooping. He doesn’t want to fight me because he knows better.”

King Mo concluded with a strong message for Ortiz.

“Tito, just be a man – if you don’t want to fight me, then just say you don’t. I ain’t going to be mad. As long as you bump your gums and talk about me, then you might as well fight me then. Don’t be no bitch. You can call me hood and ghetto or whatever – call me what you want, but I ain’t no bitch like you.”
