Dana White Releases Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal from Strikeforce Contract

Well just when it seemed it couldn’t get any worse for the former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal it has. UFC president, Dana White today confirmed the news that Lawal has been released from his Strikeforce contract.

Following a nine-month suspension issued today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Lawal lashed out in a video interview and later on Twitter, which led to the pink slip. During the NSAC questioning, NSAC commissioner, Pat Lundvall asked Lawal whether he read and understood English in relation to a pre-fight questionnaire that required Lawal to disclose any medications he had taken two weeks prior to the fight as well as any injuries he might have sustained.

Lawal, posting via his official Twitter account, said:

“I honestly feel like Lundvall was a racist bitch asking me if I can read or speak english, Go on somewhere with that shit!!!”

Lawal, later explained the tweet more, saying:

“Its funny how people are tryna say that I’m callin the commission racist,” he tweeted. “No!! They aren’t. But there was one person on the panel that was out of line with the question she asked me. I found it insulting, prejudice, and a lil racist. I say racist from my past experiences, I have been asked that in the past as an insult.”
