Lawal: UFC groupie-ness is a joke

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

Lawal, who was shelved for nine months this past December when he was suspended for failing a post-fight drug test in Strikeforce, said today that most major organizations have matching clauses. And in the case of his terminated Strikeforce contract, he figured it was better safe than sorry

"I just chose to follow through with it because you never know what's going to happen," Lawal said. "Say I were to sign, and the UFC got mad – they could sue me or something. I played the safe route. If they weren't going to enforce it, why would they put it in their contract?

"Some people have to open their eyes up and pay attention. A lot of this UFC groupie-ness is a joke. If the UFC does it, turn your head. But if Bellator or somebody else does it, all eyes are focused on them, (and) it's negative. How can anybody say it's bad for Bellator to do it and not bad for the UFC to do it when they all do it? It is what it is. It's in the contracts. Let it go."

What's to be mad about?He's irrelevant at this point, and that means I don't have to listen to his half-literate racist street goon gibberish. Celebrate.

How does King Mo know anything about UFC contracts????? Has he ever seen one? He wasnt one of the SF guys that Dana really seemed to like and then to pop when he fights Lorenz was not such a good move. So yeah Bellator was the best career move he could make....and only move left.Enjoy the fake rassle appearances and the real fights against guys that will never have half of your talent King Mo but you know as well as the fans that the king of the CFL is not a King.

Racist idiot needs to just shut up. Go to wretard-wrestling and hit somebody with a chair, because you're not good enough to compete in the UFC anyway. Cheating or not.Accidentally took a tainted supplement... Riiiiiight...
