    Suspended for 9 months and released from Strikeforce contract

    Think he will return like Torres or of to Bellator for him?

    Hopefully this leads to scrapping of LHW division in SF and Mousasi, Feijao, Larkin, OSP and others all come in to UFC to freshen things up.

    Red your 100% right, there is no reason to keep the Lhw devision. Mo rematching Mousasi and Feijao seemed fights that needed to happen. I dont rate OSP or any other Lhw under the SF banner so with Mo gone I could see it being a 2 horse race at Lhw... Itll end up like the Scotish premier league! lol.

    Mo is so unbelievabally inative it would do him good to go to the B leagues and build himself up again before coming to UFC I reckon.

    Heres hoping this starts the ball rolling on the devision being closed in SF. Bring on Mousasi vs Machida at long last! Feijao vs Thiago Silva too please!

    King Mo is without a doubt one of the best LHW's outside the UFC. I can see Rampage being released and seeing him vs Mo... but the question is in what organisation?

    Both guys are loved in Asia so I reckon OneFC or if Dream doesnt go bust, NYE Mo vs Rampage?

    Bellator isnt work going near for any promising fighter hoping to get to the top of the UFC one day, They will end up stuck in a B league organisation when they are an A class fighter like Alvarez and Lombard (Its taken them years to have the chance to Escape Bellator) If Lombard stays at Bellator for some crazy reason Mo would be a great fight for him at a catchweight.

    SFL seems a bit of a freakshow organisation, I dont think they will be around for long. OneFC or Dream are the best bets.

    Awful decision but I've always had the impression Dana wanted to get rid of Mo for whatever reason If I was him I'd go with Bellator while moonlighting in Japan.

    Mo vs Ramplod will happen now IMO.

    Mousasi is going to try and make the dutch olympic boxing team so we's likely out of action for a while as well. Might as well scrap the division.

    I think ZUFFA are quit happy to get rid of a guy that was suspended,and on a fat contract not written up by themselves,and I think there are loads of comparisons that could be made,that makes ZUFFA look very hypocritical in this decision,but at the end of the day,Mo's own actions have put himself in this situation,nobody elses.

    He was the one that took the substance that got him banned.He should of just held his hands up and accepted the punishment that was being given out,but no,after being asked a standard question that everyone gets asked,to make sure they have a clear understanding of the rulings being laid down,whether it was asked in a condescending tone or not,he doesn't except responsibility,he gets an attitude,pulls out the race card,lashes out and stupidly goes on twitter (a place all ZUFFA employees have been strongly warned about there conduct or face possible dismissal ),calls the commissioner out,and calls her a racist bitch. Rolling Eyes

    Even if in his own head,he firmly believes that,he could of kept his frustrations to himself or even vented to those around him,but no,it was again,his choice and decision to sit down,say fuck it to the consequences and type that out for the world to see.

    At the end of the day IMO,Mo was looking for someone to be pissed at,when the only person he should be pissed at,is himself.
