If scientists genetically engineer a hybrid of Gilbert Yvel and Melvin Manhoef, you’d end up with a Larkin-like humanoid capable of winning any fight he wants with a menacing glare followed with a swift barrage of body-shots. Outside the ring, he would be into comic books, inherit the ability to regenerate, and exist primarily on an edamame & Raisin Bran diet. Unfortunately, the technology to create the ultimate MMA striker in a laboratory hasn’t materialized, so everything Lorenz Larkin has accomplished, he had to work hard for. While you were watching the Pride Bushido DVD on your coffee table for the 11th time, he was sweating in a Muay Thai gym preparing for his opportunity to fight King Mo on January 7. While he might be new to main stage of Strikeforce, he’s had his tour of their Challenger’s series and he’s proven that being amongst mere professionals bores him. His mom even goes on to say he’s Muhammad Ali-like in this MMAWeekly interview.
Editor’s Note: Since we’ve referenced Larkin’s mom, pretend like you have some manners and don’t be a jackass in the comment section. Thank you.
