In order to avoid hiring a third fighter with alleged Neo-Nazi ties (see: Brinsa, B. and Sailing, B.) down the line, the UFC quietly implemented a new background-checking policy earlier this week, handing out questionnaires that asked both newly-signed and veteran fighters to detail their educational and criminal backgrounds, as well as their medical history. It was an undoubtedly smart move on the UFC’s part, and one that was likely brought about by the firing of Will Chope back in March and the media circus that followed. (For context: A “media circus” in the MMA world = More than 4 non-SB Nation sites devoting an entire article to an 0-1 UFC fighter.)
In any case, the idea of seeing Dominick Cruz‘s three-year long health insurance scam finally exposed (that’s what all this has been, right?) got us thinking: “What other crimes have UFC stars likely committed?”
Think of this as a caption-contest of sorts: Pick a fighter and a crime that is most likely to be dug up when the UFC does some investigating into said fighter’s background. A few examples:
-Daniel Cormier — Assault of a Senior Citizen
-Roy Nelson — BurglerKingary
