Daniel Cormier credits Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal with helping him rise up from the bottom. Tonight, Lawal takes on Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the Bellator 120 main event, and it’s obvious who Cormier feels will come out on top.

“Watch him put an end to ‘Rampage’s’ career,” wrote Cormier, earlier this week on Instagram. “Mo you a champion my brother and good luck. You won’t need it.”

Cormier and Lawal were wrestlers at Oklahoma State University. “DC” was a national runner-up for the Cowboys after a Hall of Fame career at the junior college ranks.

He went on to compete and achieve Olympic wrestler status after his time in Stillwater. Since, Cormier has fought 14 times inside the cage, winning all 14 including his recent light heavyweight debut for the UFC.

Cormier returns to action next weekend against Dan Henderson at UFC 173.

Lawal was an All-American at OSU in 2003 and a Big 12 champion. Like Cormier, he previously fought for Strikeforce, winning the light heavyweight title.

“This guy insisted that I fight,” Cormier wrote. “This guy called me when I was at my lowest point everyday. This guy paid my mortgage when I was broke. He’s my brother and I can’t wait until he competes this weekend in his 1st PPV main event.

“You don’t meet many people like Muhammed Lawal in one lifetime and I am lucky to have this guy.”

Lawal appeared to be headed towards the UFC after Zuffa purchased Strikeforce, but an incident outside of the cage let him to Bellator instead. Lawal also battled back from a Staph infection that almost took his life.

During his post-workout media scrum earlier this week, Jackson responded to Cormier’s comments.

“Daniel needs to watch what he says before I smack the taste out of his mouth,” Jackson said (thanks to MMAjunkie.com for the quotes). “Why do I care about Daniel Cormier? That’s his boy. I know what I’m going to do to ‘Mo.’ I don’t care what Daniel says.”
