There is a short list of fighters especially 185+ that I'd be surprised doesn't take or hasn't taken steroids in the past. Whats surprising is the stupidity of getting caught. C'mon ,man!

Guess he will get a year suspension as well then huh? They are not going to have anyone left at Strikeforce soon.

Believe it or not, he denies:


Former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal tested positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone at the Jan. 7 "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine" event.

That's according to Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer, who today emailed the event's drug-testing results to (

When today contacted by, Lawal denied using any banned substances.

All other fighters from the Las Vegas show tested negative for performance-enhancing drugs and drugs of abuse.

Lawal (9-1 MMA, 4-1 SF) scored a second-round knockout of Lorenzo Larkin at the event, which took place at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Lawal, who was fighting for the second time since losing his Strikeforce belt, fought in the night's Showtime-televised main card.

Barring a successful appeal, Lawal faces a one-year suspension, a fine, and the overturning of the win to a no-contest.

Drostanolone (also known as Drolban or Masteron) often is used as a diuretic among weight-cutting and recovering/injured athletes, according to various online sources.

Other fighters tested at the event include Luke Rockhold, Keith Jardine, Robbie Lawler, Tyron Woodley, Tarec Saffiedine, Tyler Stinson, Nah-Shon Burrell, James Terry, Gian Villante, Trevor Smith, Ricky Legere, Chris Spang, Estevan Payan and Alonzo Martinez. All tested negative.

Stay tuned to for more on this story, including reaction from Lawal.

And he's the one calling Rampage a dummy, he sure showed him.

Have fun with that year off, and learn to train naturally.

The main uses of this steroid is to lower cholesterol and it has also been used to treat cancer victims...

On the other hand it has also been used among amateur wrestlers, bodybuilders, fighters and so on, usually to help them maintain musclemass and/or strenght during a weight-cut.

Just some info for those interested :P

And damn, King Mo got hit, even though he was all the way up there on his high horse

What a low-life if it's true. I don't like people who cheat but nothings worse than a loudmouth who cheats. Enjoy the year off and i'm sure he'll fade away.

He's such a vocal guy, that's going to magnify the fact that he did this. Of course he's denying it. Anyways enjoy the year off. Hopefully he can get his shit together in that time.

Don't forget to overturn his win over Larkin as a No Contest NSAC.

This will give him some time to rest and work on his stand up!
