Strikeforce: Houston Pre-Fight Press Conference Quotes & Photos


On how he prepares for a fighter like Lawal:
“I’ve been training hard. I saw his last fight. He’s a complete fighter, so I prepare for everything. I’m ready.”

Is it inevitable that he’ll end up on his back at some point because of Mo’s wrestling ability?
“I don’t think he’s gonna do just that, man. I think he has a lot of surprises for this fight. I think he’s training everything and he’ll have some new things that he’s gonna try and show in this fight.”

On defending himself if he is taken down:
“I’m from jiu-jitsu. A lot of people think I’m just a stand-up guy, but I’m a black belt in jiu-jitsu. When I was ten years old, I started training jiu-jitsu. I just haven’t had a chance to show it yet.”
