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?
