Dana White not buying Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal’s excuses

January 26, 2012 Uncategorized

UFC President, Dana White has today commented on the recent failed drug test of former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and his subsequent reasons for failing it, saying he just doesn’t buy it.

Speaking via MMAFighting.com, White said:

“If you get caught doing something, admit you did it. The whole ‘Somebody put something in my system that I didn’t know about?’ I mean, who here lets someone put s–t inside them that you don’t know what it is? If you go to the doctor and he gives you a pill, ‘Doc, what am I taking this for?’”

“I don’t buy that s—t. Own up to what you did. Listen, it’s out there, it happens, and sometimes everybody makes mistakes. The up-and-coming guys, you’re already talented, you’re already fast, you’re already strong, do not ruin your career by taking this junk that will affect you for the rest of your life.”

“I don’t buy it. Anybody that’s ever said that they didn’t know what’s being put in their body is full of s–t.”

Lawal has revealed he’s unlikely to appeal any decision made by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, something that’s likely to result in a token fine and a one-year suspension from the sport, something that will rule him out of competing for the vacant 205 pound title. Stay tuned to MMABay for more news on this as we get it.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
