King Mo Has Bad Intentions In Mind For Gegard Mousasi

King Mo Lawal talks to MMAFighting.com about his upcoming light heavyweight title bout with Gegard Mousasi on April 17th:

“People wonder if I'm ready for Mousasi? Is Mousasi ready for me? What happens when I win? Is everyone going to say, 'Oh, he just had a bad night.' All the people can say is that he has experience over me. I don't think I'll get the respect when I win. I think people will say, 'Forget it, we overrated Mousasi.' … Who's he fought up until Cyborg? Until he got to the DREAM tournament. First five years, he wasn't fighting big names. I didn't hear people saying he should be fighting tougher people. If I want to get takedowns, I'll get them. It's not like he has much power. I have more power than he does. Even though he looks crisp, he's got a lot of holes in his standup. He's not going to land. He's taller and rangier, but he's going to feel my power. I've watched all the film on him, but I mean, what film can he watch on me? There's not much to watch, and every time I've been out there, I've fought differently.”
