Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal Could Receive Another Shot Under Zuffa Umbrella

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal remains an unsigned fighter following his release from Strikeforce.

However, with his recent actions, UFC president Dana White told John Morgan of MMA Junkie that he is impressed with Lawal and could see him back fighting for Zuffa down the road.

Lawal was released from his contract after an outburst on Twitter following his heading in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Much of his heat was directed at Pat Lundvall, who questioned Lawal during the hearing.

We’ll see how this whole thing goes down. The fact that he called her and reached out to her, I mean, that’s what he should have done. It’s respectable. I respect that.

Both Bellator and the Super Fight League have expressed interest in Lawal, but so far, the former college wrestler has remained quiet on his thought process. Of course, he is currently suspended for a failed drug test, so that could have him weighing his options.
