Muhammed King Mo Lawal - Strikeforce
Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal‘s day on Tuesday went from bad to worse after receiving his punishment from the Nevada Athletic Commission as he was then released from his Strikeforce contract.

Lawal confirmed the news to on Tuesday. The release was originally reported by

The details surrounding his release involve a series of Twitter messages that Lawal put out after his hearing with the Nevada Commission this afternoon.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker made a statement regarding the release of King Mo Lawal after today’s events.

“Following the outcome of today’s hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission and his subsequent reaction, Strikeforce has released Muhammed Lawal from his contract,” said Coker in the statement.

While the messages have since been deleted, Lawal was referencing a line of questioning from Commissioner Pat Lundvall during Tuesday’s hearing.

“I honestly feel like Lundvall was a racist (expletive) asking me if I can read or speak English. Go on somewhere with that bull (expletive),” Lawal wrote.

Following that message, Lawal released another explaining his earlier statement directed at Lundvall.

“It’s funny how people are trying to say that I’m calling the commission racist. No! They aren’t. But there was one person on the panel that was out of line with the question she asked me. I found it insulting, prejudice, and a lil’ racist. I say racist from past experiences,” Lawal stated.

It didn’t take long for the powers that be at Zuffa to take notice, and soon after Strikeforce matchmaker Sean Shelby notified Lawal’s manager Mike Kogan that he had been released from his contract.

The line of questioning that Lawal was referencing from Commissioner Pat Lundvall involved the supplements the former champion took that he believes caused a positive drug test following his bout with Lorenz Larkin in January.

Commissioner Lundvall was quizzing Lawal and his manager Mike Kogan on the drugs and supplements he was on, and a pre-fight questionnaire that was filled out regarding any medications the fighter was taking prior to his bout in Strikeforce earlier this year.

The audio of the Nevada Commission’s hearing with Lawal is available below:
