Bummer, King Mo tested positive for steroids

According to the Nevada State Athletic Comission, King Mo tested positive for the steroid known as ‘Drostanalone’ in his most recent fight against Lorenz Larkin at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine. Drostanalone is a substance many fighters have used to maintain muscle while cutting weight. Josh Barnett and Hermes Franca have also been caught using the substance in the past. Mo denies that he used any steroids before his bout with Larkin. If the NSAC verdit holds up (which at this point I don’t see why it wouldn’t) then King Mo will most likely be suspended anywhere from six months to a year for the violation.

Look on the bright side, now that King Mo’s previous Strikeforce bout will be ruled a No Contest/Disqualification, Lorenz Larkin will still be the undefeated 205 lb prospect that he was going into his fight with King Mo. Alternatively, does that mean all the bookies who took bets on Larkin vs. King Mo will need to collect money obtained from gamblers that dropped cash on King Mo? Seriously, how would that work out. Hmph.
