Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Badr Hari is a Free Man…At Least For Now

("A statement? I got your statement right here.")

The Dutch newspaper, de Telegraph is reporting that badboy K-1 standout Badr Hari was released from prison in Amsterdam yesterday after serving less than a month behind bars for an alleged assault on a bouncer earlier this year.

According to police, in February Hari and a group of friends were refused entry to a club because their attire did not conform to the dress code set by the bar. An argument escalated to a physical altercation that allegedly saw Hari break the doorman’s nose and eye socket. 

Maybe K-1 fighters just need to stay out of nightclubs.

Hari was identified as the prime suspect in the case after a thorough police investigation and consequently a warrant was issued for his arrest in June. The Dutch-born Moroccan fighter, who had been living in Morocco since his DQ loss to Hesdy Gerges on May 29 under the It’s Showtime! banner announced that he would be stepping away from the sport for personal reasons soon after and didn’t turn himself into police in Holland until last month.

Hari has steadfastly continued to deny involvement in the incident.

Sure you didn’t do anything, Badr. We believe you would never assault someone.

His release is a conditional one as he awaits the court’s decision whether or not the case will go to trial, but Hari is free to travel and fight, which could mean that the rumored non-tournament K-1 Grand Prix rematch with Gerges in December may well now happen.

Recent stories about Hari rival those one might read in one of our Rumor Funhouse columns, including one that the kickboxer died in an accident and another that claimed that he dropped out of the limelight because he was being hunted by a member of the Dutch mob for sleeping with his wife.

It's always really cool when a website freezes your window when you first pull it up and you are forced to stare at a low-iq thug giving you the middle fingers while hoping you don't have to explain it to anyone.

I have been a long time CP reader, and I couldn't help but notice that the title of this article was completely copped from MiddleEasy. This seems to be growing trend between stealing the rumor mill idea to this. Seriously, you are better than this.

Ye, Alistair tweeted about it yesterday. Rumor says Hari took a prison tattoo: a mirrored copy of that hairy patch on his back. As a small boy he always wanted to have angel wings he said.

Tomas Rios called Hari asking if Joe Rogan "outed" him too?

Tomas Rios called Hari and asked if he could fake a front kick and then suck his dick.

Hari replied, no question mark about it bro.

Tomas Rios called Hari and asked if he could shank him in the shower.

Tomas Rios quickly called Hari asking if he was turned to a "new team" while in prison, and then asked if he could be his bat boy!!!
