Muhammed 'King Mo' Lawal sides with Mayweather: 'But if Conor was black?'

Russell Ess - January 19, 2016

Floyd Mayweather Jr. stirred up a lot of conversation recently with his opinion of racism still being prevalent in combat sports. Mayweather claimed that UFC stars Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey’s success were due to them being white. McGregor responded to Mayweather with an aggressive letter and even proposed a fight with the retired boxing champion. Obviously, the claim of color being attributed to the success of McGregor and Rousey upset some, but Bellator and RIZIN veteran Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal agrees with Mayweather. Lawal spoke with the MMA Roasted podcast recently and talked about the situation as a black fighter himself.
