In an amazing back and forth in this morning of MMA news, King Mo Lawal has been released from his Zuffa contract. It all began with a suspension that was announced earlier this morning.
Muhammed Lawal was seen by the NSAC regarding his recent failed drug test after his Strikeforce bout against Lorenz Larkin. The result of the hearing ended with a nine month suspension, a $39,000 fine, and an overturned victory. Next in the news, Lawal began to fire off comments about the NSAC.
"I don't think anybody gets a fair shake when it comes to anything in Vegas," Lawal said.
"You're dealing with people that don't really know anything about the sport," he said. "The guy tried to tell me I was injured. If I was injured, how did I make it to practice?"
"An injury to me is if I bruise a bone and I can't [expletive] stand. That's an injury. A cracked skull, like when Tito (Ortiz) fought Forrest (Griffin), that's an injury."
"How would I have known unless I would have typed in all my supplements every month to make sure none of them got banned all of a sudden?" Lawal asked.
"It's not like they send out press releases saying, 'Hey, by the way, creatine is now banned.'"
"If you're an athlete, and you're coming to Vegas for a license or anything, you might as well stay home," Lawal said. "I'm serious."
But it didn't end there. Lawal went on to say even more about his experience at his hearing with the NSAC. In particular, Lawal targeted Pat Lundvall, who asked Lawal if he could read or speak English, in reference to Lawal's suspicious answers on his pre-fight questionnaire.
"I honestly feel like Lundvall was a racist bitch asking me if I can read or speak english," Lawal tweeted. "Go on somewhere with that [expletive]!!!"
"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."
Dana White within the past few hours confirmed the release of King Mo, but has yet to make any comments regarding his reasons.
