UFC President Dana White was pleased with the way Muhammed King “Mo” Lawal handled himself in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. White explained the predicament he was in and the reason for his decision to let King “Mo” go.
“Some of the dummies in the press started talking about me cutting him as if this was something between me and him, What people have to understand, this is way bigger than me and him. First of all, this guy is an unlicensed fighter. He’s not license. He just got busted using something. Everybody has their due process. He will have his day before the commission. He went before the commission, and they said, ‘We’re suspending you for nine months,’ and he got whatever was handed down to him. Now, he has to go before the Nevada State Athletic Commission again before he can get licensed.
“He called her a racist bitch. These are the people that oversee me, too. These are the people that can tell me, ‘You can no longer have a license.’ It’s bigger than me and him. It’s bigger than that. So he’s got his own problems before he’s got to deal with me. You understand what I’m saying? He’s got to go back before the commission to get licensed.”
The reasons for cutting the former Strikeforce Champ King “Mo” are clear. The UFC President showing interest in letting the controversial King “Mo” back under the employment of Zuffa could be a sign of thing to come.
“We’ll see how this whole thing goes down,” White said following Saturday’s post-UFC on FUEL TV 2 press conference. “The fact that he called her and reached out to her, I mean that’s what he should have done. It’s respectable. I respect that.” White said in the in an interview Saturday.Tags: featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news, UFC on FOX, UFC on FOX 2, ufc on fox 3, UFC on Fuel, UFC on FX
