Lorenz Larkin is a badass Bellator welterweight. We all know that.

But did you know his skills extend beyond the gym and into the shop?

In a recent interview with MMA Junkie Radio, Larkin (22-7 MMA, 4-2 BMMA) revealed he hasn’t been spending much time during the pandemic training for his MMA return. However, Larkin has enjoyed building chopper motorcycles.

When asked if he’s actually the one building the choppers, Larkin lightheartedly took exception with implied doubt he was capable of doing so.

“No respect,” Larkin laughed. “We’re building it. I’m building it, but I’m not welding it.”

Could we see a motorcycle reality series featuring him in the future? Larkin isn’t ruling it out, but it has to be on a network that’s OK with his vernacular, he said.

“(Expletive), I could do it,” Larkin said. “The only thing is I’d have to be on HBO because I cuss too much, man. (Otherwise) it’d just be like, ‘Beep-beep, ba-beep-beep-beep.’ But I think I could definitely do a TV show.”

Just like his motorcycle television series, Larkin’s MMA future is uncertain. Larkin doesn’t have a fight on the books, though Bellator president Scott Coker has voiced interest in a potential matchup with Michael Page.

Whether it be HBO’s version of American choppers starring Lorenz Larkin, or a fight with the uber-popular “MVP,” he’ll have to wait to see which career opportunity presents itself first.
