Former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal tested positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone at the Jan. 7 "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine" event.

That's according to Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer, who today emailed the event's drug-testing results to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

When today contacted by MMAjunkie.com, Lawal denied using any banned substances.

Drostanolone (also known as Drolban or Masteron) often is used as a diuretic among weight-cutting athletes, according to various online sources.

So much for Mo getting that title shot, at least for the time being.

Hopefully they'll have him fight Rampage in his welcome back fight.

Yet another reason to dislike him.

Man, NSAC really needs to upgrade the test kits they use. They *always* seem return false positives.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Leben denied it when he got popped.

Hermes Franca did, because he got injured before his title fight against Sherk, and admitted without them his injury wouldn't have healed quick enough and he knew if he pulled out of the title fight, he probably wouldn't get one again. Funnily enough, the same fight that Sherk got popped and denied usage.

This will give Rampage a whole bunch of new material on Mo.

He's certainly a trash talking sonofabitch for somebody who cheats.

It's probably happened to everyone. You're just out shopping at the mall and BAM someone runs by and injects you with steroids. No way to stop it from happening imo.

I am so sick and tired of all of the steroid and PED usage in MMA and other sports. Apparently fairness and integrity are far beyond the comprehension of many of today's athletes. If you can't compete without steroids maybe you shouldn't be competing. I say make the penalties super stiff and you will see the use of steroids disappear. It is simple....you get caught using roids and you are blackballed for 5 years. That would make most of them change their minds about cheating.

It happened to me at Bed, Bath and Beyond the other day. Now I've been relentlessly talking shit every time I beat somebody who is top 30 in the division, at most.

I was in the midst of projectile vomiting a blooming onion at my local Outback Steakhouse when I felt a jab in my thigh. Now I wear gold shoes and dance like an asshole.
