An outburst on Twitter following a nine-month suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission has seemingly been the cause of Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal's release from Strikeforce. 

After the hearing in front of the NSAC today, Lawal tweeted: 

"I honestly feel like Lundvall was a racist bitch asking me if I can read or speak english. Go on somewhere with that bull---- b**ch!!!"

Lawal was clearly not happy with the questioning of NSAC commissioner Pat Lundvall and was not shy to voice his opinion, although the tweet has since been removed. 

The former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion (slightly) backtracked on what he said in his next tweet

"Its funny how people are tryna say that I'm callin 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 my past experiences."

However, the damage appeared to already be done as UFC president Dana White told MMA Junkie that Lawal had been released from his Strikeforce contract

Lawal tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug after defeating previously unbeaten Lorenz Larkin by TKO at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine in January. 

The NSAC voted unanimously to fine Lawal 30 percent of his $80,000 check from the event, as well as his $15,000 win bonus. His win over Larkin will also be changed to a no contest and King Mo will have to provide a clean drug test to reapply for a Nevada fighter's license. 

All of these sanctions are in addition to the nine-month suspension.
