MMA NEWS – Another Fighter Popped: King Mo Tests Positive For Steroids

January 17, 2012 9:50 am by Pedro Carrasco

Suspended and fined, King Mo now faces consequences for having anabolic steroids in his system.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission today released the findings from the “Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine” drug screenings and out of all the fighters screened King Mo was the only one who tested positive for steroids.

Lawal was found to have Drostanolone ( Drolban/Masteron) in his system which is commonly used as a diuretic as well as an injury recovery treatment.

He is now suspended for 12-months, fined a portion of his purse and his most recent win over Lorenzo Larkin has been changed into a no contest.

Mo last saw action at the “Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine” event taking out Larkin in the very first round of action by using his brute strength and superior wrestling skills to ground his opponent and finish him with punches while in top position.

Other fighters tested from the evening’s card include main event fighters Luke Rockhold and Keith Jardine as well as Robbie Lawler, Tyron Woodley, Tarec Saffiedine, Tyler Stinson, Nah-Shon Burrell, James Terry, Trevor Smith, Gian Villante, Chris Spang, Estevan Payan, Ricky Legere and Alonzo Martinez.

Mo is denying his involvement with the banned substance and will likely dispute the findings through the Nevada State Athletic Commissions appeals process.
