Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal Released From Strikeforce
Former champ Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal cut from Strikeforce over an offensive Twitter remark.
Former Strikeforce champ Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal is really having a bad week. Lawal, who was recently been suspended and fined by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for testing positive for the steroid Drostanole, has just been cut from Strikeforce for making an offensive Twitter remark directed at a NSAC official.
“I honestly feel like Lundvall was a racist b—- asking me if I can read or speak english,” Lawal wrote. “Go on somewhere with that s—!!!” Lawal said on his Twitter account.
The person he was referring to was NSAC commissioner Pat Lundvall, whom he felt went out of line for ‘asking him if he could speak and read English’ while he was filling out the pre-fight questionnaire.
“Its funny how people are tryna say that I’m callin the commission racist. 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.” Lawal added.
Lawal made the reaction following NSAC’s decision to suspend him for nine months, pay a fine amounting to $39,000 and change his recent victory against Lorenz Larkin at ‘Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine’ to a ‘no contest’.View Article Source »
