King Mo Lawal apologizes for calling NSAC chairperson a bitch

Pictured: Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal.

Muhammed Lawal has had one hell of a year. Some of that's been thanks to bad luck but he's also brought some of his misfortunes upon himself.

Such was the case recently when he called a Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) chairperson a "racist bitch" because she asked him a question he found offensive. The ruling to come down from that infamous hearing was a $39,000 fine, a nine month suspension and his win over Lorenz Larkin getting overturned.

The real kicker, though, came when he tweeted his displeasure with the aforementioned insult. Shortly after doing so, he was unceremoniously released from his Zuffa contract.

The first step in his rehabilitation process comes in how he handles himself now and he's doing the right thing here by issuing an apology in an interview with CSN California:

"I was out of line for calling the woman the 'B' word and I was wrong for that. I was kind of mad about the comments, I was offended by the comments made towards me and I was out of line. I was too emotional. I apologize for that. With that being said, I still feel that I was offended, but I'm in the wrong for what I said."

Hear more from "King Mo" after the jump, including an update on his health status and what he's got planned now that his life has turned upside down. Hint: He'll bounce back.

Lawal apology.
