Kenny Florian on King Mo | "His Penalty Was Extremely Harsh"
By Jamie McAllister:
“It’s really unfortunate, especially for a guy like King Mo, who I really like as a person. I think you can’t question his talent, the guy is a tremendous talent and a tremendous fighter and, you know, sometimes we are all going to be victims of our own emotions and I think that was the case with King Mo. I think he definitely regrets what he says but I think the penalty was extremely harsh, as well. I think anytime you get someone who questions you and is supposed to be in a position of authority, and kind of says something like that to you, “Do you speak English?” Listen, I don’t care who you are or where you’re from, that’s going to leave a bad taste in your mouth. I think there is nice ways to say on both sides. I think King Mo has learned from this and a guy that talented needs to be fighting in the UFC. I think he is sorry for what he said and I hope to see him, if not in Strikeforce, then hopefully in the UFC as soon as possible.”
Kenny Florian comment’s on the King Mo situation in an interview with Fight Hub TV.
In case you forgot “King Mo” called Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) Chairperson Pat Lundvall a “racist bitch” following his suspension for a positive steroid test. Since then he has apologised for the remarks.
