Muhammed Lawal spoke with MMAjunkie ahead of his fight with Jiri Prochazka at Rizin FF 15 for the inaugural Rizin FF light heavyweight title. Highlights are below:

On being willing to fight at middleweight or light heavyweight: “(I can make) 185, straight up – I’m 204 right now. 185 is just like right there. So 205, 185, heavyweight – whatever. Money weight.”

On not being worried about the title stakes: “I’m going to be real with you: Titles, they’re cool I guess, but I just want to get that win. I couldn’t care less about the title. Straight up.”

On his previous fight with Prochazka: “Me and Jiri fought before, and I beat him, so I guess they’re trying to get some payback on me. They’re going to see what’s up.”
