Well, it seems like Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal’s suspension for a testing positive for steroids will cost him even more than the fines handed down by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, as UFC president Dana White told Steven Marrocco and John Morgan of MMA Junkie that he has cut Lawal from Strikeforce.
White would not elaborate on the decision to cut Lawal, but it is likely due to the outburst he issued on Twitter following the decision by NSAC.
Lawal wrote on his Twitter account Tuesday, “I honestly feel like (NSAC commissioner Pat) Lundvall was a racist (expletive) asking me if I can read or speak english. Go on somewhere with that (expletive)!!!”
Lawal was issued a nine-month suspension and fined part of his purse from a win over Lorenz Larkin earlier this year. However, that victory was later changed to a no-contest due to the positive steroid test by Lawal. With this latest news, it remains unknown what will happen to Lawal in terms of fighting in MMA again.
