Las Vegas battery charge results in anger management counseling for Alistair Overeem.


At the end of December UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem had been accused of shoving a woman at a Las Vegas Casino. He was charged with misdemeanor battery and faced up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. The charges went to a Non Jury Trial yesterday (March 27th) and luckily for the Reem he was able to get away with a sentence of 50 hours of community service with a stipulation to undergo anger-management counseling. Now to the important part.... None of this will affect Overeem's upcoming heavyweight championship showdown with Junior dos Santos at UFC 146.

The Real Reason King Mo Lawal Was Cut From Strikeforce.

     After being fined and suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Tuesday. The outspoken former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion took to twitter in order to say......
To the NSAC, in particular NSAC commissioner Pat Lundvall. Who Mo called a racist bitch on twitter, after she'd asked him if he could speak and read english during the NSAC hearing. A hearing that voted to suspend him for nine months, fine him $39,000 and overturn his Jan 7th Strikeforce win over Lorenz Larkin to a no contest. All for a post fight drug test that was found to contain drostanolone and if that wasn't enough. 
     Mo got a call later that afternoon from his manager informing him that he had been released from his Strikeforce contract for his tweets about commissioner Lundvall. Weird right?..........We thought so too, so we contacted It's Fighting Stupid's psychic operations officer. 
It's Fighting Stupid's Psychic Operations Officer.
    After performing several sophisticated experiments in quantum mechanics and laser physics using paranormal means, in particular, extra-sensory perception and in the absence of any kind of evidence. We have concluded that King Mo was most likely let go in an attempt to re-sign him at lesser money once he has recovered from a life threatening staph infection.
    There have been precedents set in regards to Twitter & Zuffa, and this doesn't seem to fall in line with previous punitive action. Inconsistency is not uncommon when it comes to Zuffa correctional policy, but when people can make jokes about rape and pedophilia and keep their jobs, King Mo's dismissal raises flags. 
      So why would Zuffa want to release a top fifteen light heavy weight for something that isn't usually a dismissible offense? The usual reason, MONEY. King Mo is one of Strikeforce's best paid fighters with an $80,000 guarantee. That's a bigger guarantee than UFC interim welterweight champ Carlos Condit or even Chael Sonnen for that matter. All while fighting in Zuffa's minor league promotion making that contract even more expensive. 
     Our extra-sensory research is showing that Mo's price tag coupled with his recent medical battles probably put him in the company's cross-hairs and his recent twitter mistake allowed them to pull the trigger on his release. Putting Zuffa in position to gauge Mo's recovery, and re-sign him to one of their brands at a more competitive wage when he is recovered and the opportunity presents it's self.

Luke Thomas, shows King Mo how he should have answered NSAC commissioner Pat Lundvall's question.
