MMAJunkie.com is featuring an interview with Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal discussing his signing with Bellator, TNA and training with OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling) shortly.
“After I got released I got hit up, and they said they (Bellator) were interested. ‘We’re going to call you in two days. We got something big to tell you, something big to offer you.’ So I said, ‘All right. Let me see what it is.’ I didn’t know much about Bellator. When they called me, they had (TNA Entertainment president) Dixie Carter on the phone. I was like, ‘Hold up. I kind of like the sound of where this is going.’ Then when they threw it at me. I was like, ‘Let’s sign this now.’ I’m about two months away from going to Ohio Valley (TNA’s developmental wrestling organization based in Louisville, Ky.). My knee should be 95 to 100 percent by then. Then I’ll start (MMA) training again. I’m going to start hitting mitts next week. But I’m going to take my time with it and not do anything stupid.”
