Dana White Releases King Mo From Strikeforce Contract | Does The Punishment Fit The Crime?


If it wasn’t for bad luck Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal would have none.

Let’s just do a quick recap of events:

- King Mo gets popped for having steroids in his system following his January bout with Lorenz Larkins. He claims he can prove that this was a result of tainted supplements being sold over the counter.

- King Mo has knee surgery to repair a nagging injury.

- He comes down with one of the worst cases of staph in recent memory. As a result he has six more surgeries, has walked on crutches for months, multiple hospitalizations and to date the infection is still there.

- He goes in front of the NSAC is offended by commissioner comments, suspended, fined and his win is revoked.

- He goes on twitter to express his discontent for the commissioner, calling her a racist and a bitch.

- Dana White releases him from his Strikeforce contract.

Here is what Scott Coker told mmafighting.com:

“Following the outcome of today’s hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission and his subsequent reaction, STRIKEFORCE has released Muhammad Lawal from his contract.”

The UFC/ZUFFA has taken a tough stance on twitter postings; just ask Miguel Torres, but considering the events that have transpired should Mo have received the same punishment? Is this an acceptable course of action from ZUFFA?
