Bellator light heavyweight contender King Mo Lawal talks with FightHype.com's Percy Crawford  about his fight June 19 clash with Seth Petruzelli.

Of particular interest is Lawal's remarks about spinning strikes.

Percy Crawford: Do you feel like you have a lot to prove to the Bellator fans being that you didn't accomplish what you set out to accomplish during your first tournament with the company?

King Mo: All I gotta do is prove that I'm the best by going out there and winning and I'm gonna do that. I'm gonna win this tournament and then I'm gonna beat whoever has the belt at the time. Hopefully it's...what's that boy's name...Emanuel Newton, so I can erase this wrong and make it right and then defend the belt.

PC: What do you see as Seth Petruzelli's strengths?

KM: He's unorthodox and he kicks real good and he has power, you know what I'm saying? The thing is, he will try that spinning s---; spinning backfist, spinning back kicks and wheel kicks, and spinning back elbows. I ain't having that no more. I'm gonna break that s---. You try some spinning s--- on me, you're gonna fail. That's the trend now, but that s--- ain't gonna work on me no more. And granted, I got hit with it, but he just threw it. It's not like he saw a weakness and threw it in a calculated form. He just threw it because that's all he had with his back turned. But the spinning s--- is what everybody is trying. It's the new trend. You know how MMA goes in trends. First everyone was boxing and kickboxing, then it was wrestling and Jiu Jitsu and everybody trying armbars and triangles, and then sprawl and brawl and then ground and pound, and now it's the spinning s---. I'm putting all that spinning s--- to rest.

Read entire interview...

King Mo cracks me up... he's such a bullshitter. I hope he gets caught with the same spinning shit that dropped him last fight. If he was a little more humble about things I think a lot more people would like him

Newton stole his soul and if he fights him again it will be over even quicker.

Bellator specificially made the tournament shorter just so he could win.  Sad.

Came here for this. MMA does seem to go through periods when certain techniques or styles become popular, but that just the sport evolving. Not to mention that was not the order that evolved in. Phone Post 3.0

The problem I have with his comment apart form order of evolution is that it comes across to me more as X used to be good and is no longer good so its no longer used by many. Also someone needs to show Mo some old spinning backfists where guys just have their back turned and throw it anyways and knock motherfuckers out. Its been happening for a long time now.

His butthurt about getting caught with it is strong.
