KING MO ON SCOTT COKER REPLACING BJORN REBNEY:

"Free at last, free at last," was the way Bellator light heavyweight contender answered his phone following the news that Bellator President Bjorn Rebney had been replaced by former Strikeforce President Scott Coker. Mo, who won the light heavyweight title under Strikeforce's banner, has always said positive things about Coker and was very vocal on his behalf once Zuffa purchased the organization. "I'd fight tomorrow if Scott Coker asked me to. I'll fight for Scott Coker every other month and if the fight wasn't a big fight, I'd take less money just to compete for him. I was my happiest when I was with Strikeforce before the Zuffa buyout and I'm back to that spot, mayne," Mo commented.

Mo and Rebney had not been on the best of terms lately, and Mo went public in a pre-fight interview before his pay-per-view debut fight against Rampage Jackson, another nemesis of his, calling Rebney a "dick rider." Once again taking an opportunity to fire a shot at the former Bellator President, he added, "I know I sound like a dick rider like Bjorn, but in this case, Scott Coker deserves it. I'll do my thang for Coker!"
