It seems that 'King' Muhammed Lawal's comments on twitter might have caught up with him today. According to MMA Junkie, he was released from Strikeforce by Dana White. White didn't supply any reasoning, only confirming the release from the promotion.

This comes on the heels of Mo's suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission earlier today, and his comments on twitter that followed. Mo did an interview with Crooklyn that was just posted on the site, but he didn't know about his release at the time of the interview.

Lawal is a former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion that has been dealing with a variety of health issues of late in addition to his NSAC suspension. He is suspended for nine months from the day of his last fight with Lorenz Larkin (which was flipped to a no-contest) and was fined $39,000 of his purse. Bloody Elbow will relay whatever Mo has to say regarding his release as soon as he is available to speak on the issue.
