Could Muhammed Lawal, who was released from the Strikeforce promotion after lashing out at the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), one day return and fight again under the ZUFFA banner?

Well, yes and Mo.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White isn't taking a firm stance either way, following the former Light Heavyweight Champion's sentence, which equates to $39,000 and a nine month suspension after testing positive for Drostanolone on the heels of his Jan. 7 win no contest over Lorenz Larkin.

"King Mo" has since apologized for calling NSAC Chairperson Pat Lundvall a "racist bitch," and as White points out, it's all in how you handle yourself after you make a mistake.

From Whoa! TV:

"Yeah, King Mo. Here's the thing with that. Some of the dummies in the press started talking about me cutting him as if this was something between me and him. What people have to understand is this is way bigger than me and him. First of all, this guy's an unlicensed fighter. He just got busted for using something. Everybody has their due process, he'll have his day before the commission. He went before the commission and they said 'We're suspending you for nine months' and he got whatever was handed down to him. He has to go before the Nevada State Athletic Commission again before he can get licensed. That is not gonna be a fun day for him, I would have to imagine. Everybody make mistakes and it's all in how you handle yourself after you make those mistakes. I'm not Mr. Perfect. I've made a lot of mistake myself and I will make more."

More from the UFC boss after the jump.
