King Mo in bad mecidal condition

It seems that currently suspended Strikeforce fighter, King Mo, could really use everyone’s prayers right now.

Robert Joyner who has feelanced for Sports Illustrated in the past broke the story earlier today about Mohammed Lawal a/k/a King Mo of Strikeforce fighting through complications suffered during surgery on his ACL. Below is Joyner’s original tweet breaking the story:

Quote:
“On the King Mo situation, hearing from those close to him he’s in a bad situation. He got injured in the Larkin fight, had to get another ACL. There were complications and he ended up with a very bad staph infection that was life threatening, and nearly required amputation. Mo had to have 5 surgeries in 12 days before staph was gone. Currently he’s taking an iv directly into his heart every day for six weeks. Making the situation even worse, this was a recurrence of same injury within 18 months, so Zuffa/SF insurance won’t cover the ACL surgery or the subsequent follow-ups for the staph. Mo is/will have to come out of pocket on medical bills that may well reach into six figures.”

Other online reporters have chimed in on the story with ESPN’s Josh Gross explaining thatLawal paid out of pocket because his sources claim that Zuffa insurance won’t cover the same injury within an 18 month period and further stating that the original injury wasn’t suffered in the Larkin fight. Then FrontRowBrian corroborated the story and further added that King Mo was in danger of having his leg amputated. No official word has come out of Zuffa or Lawal’s camp, but we will keep you posted.
This is seriously terrible news. I hope he's OK and I hope Dana has enough sense to step up and makes sure everything is paid.

Quickly Dana.

That's terrible news. I hope this is being exaggerated and he's not really in danger of amputation.

Dana has a habit of doing the right thing in these kind of situations. Bit harsh relying on him though. Hope Mos Ok. He'll pull through. Hes erm...a fighter.

I swear, people leave hospitals worse than when they go in sometimes. It's a breeding ground for disease and infection. Hope Mo is doing fine now.

Some more info:

Guerilal journalist @FrontRowBrian has confirmed some details in the initial report above, and contradicted others.

I was able to get King Mo on the phone about 30 minutes ago to clear up a few things and I tweeted the following.....

Brian @FrontRowBrian Just got off the phone w/ @KingMoFH. He's in Detroit w/ friends. He wants to make it clear he's feeling well & is NOT in any financial peril

@KingMoFH still has a PICC line to his heart though. PICC =peripherally inserted central catheter. Mo says he'll be back training in 6 wks

@KingMoFH also wants to make it clear he's very happy with Zuffa's medical insurance and his out of pocket expense was minimal.

King Mo did confirm @robnashville's report that he was in danger of having his leg amputated.
Source.

Sounds like good news, compared to what it could be. Hopefully there are no more setbacks and he makes a full recovery.

Also glad to hear his out of pocket costs were relatively minimal and he's not in financial peril.
