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.
- 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.
- 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?
