(Further proof that handbag thievery is a dangerous game to get into.)
We all saw this coming.
Following last week’s report that UFC lightweight Reza Madadi had been sentenced to a year and a half behind bars for his role in the theft of over $150,000 in handbags (or as they are called in NYC “Fancy Boy European Carryalls“), it appears that the UFC has severed their ties with the Swedish prospect. An official statement was released via their website yesterday:
Following his conviction by a court of law in Sweden, the UFC organization has elected to terminate its relationship with Reza Madadi based on its Fighter Code of Conduct and the provision of its promotional agreement concerning fighter conduct.
Does anyone else wonder how Matt Hughes managed to stretch the above paragraph into an 8 hour work day?
“Do you want this in Times New Roman or the standard Calibri body, Dana? Dana?”
Madadi was last seen competing in his home country at UFC on FUEL: Mousasi vs. That Other Guy, where he improved his octagon record to 2-1 with a third round submission via D’arce victory over Michael Johnson. In retrospect, we should all just assume that Madadi’s arrest and possibly his decision to compete in MMA in the first place was all part of an elaborate ruse designed to draw attention away from Barack Obama so he could steal the Hope Diamond. BOOM BABY!
After the jump: A Colombian purse snatcher gets hit by a bus. I don’t know, it seems relevant to me.
