Lee Murray Breathes The Air of a Free Man For a Few Fleeting Moments


(Everyone wants their picture in the paper, right?)

Former MMA fighter turned bank robber Lee Murray was released from a Morrocan prison yesterday, only to be rearrested soon after and have his hopes crushed by the cruel humor of the gods.  Things seemed to be going well for Murray when a Moroccan court ruled that he was legally a citizen of Morocco and thus could not be extradited to stand trial for the robbery in England.  His release seemed even more surprising, considering he was allegedly caught trying to escape from jail a little over a week ago.  But his freedom didn’t last, as Moroccan authorities arrested him again after a British request to have him tried for the robbery in Morocco, under Moroccan law.  Murray’s lawyer said he expected the trial to start soon.


In case you missed it, Murray and a gang of of six other alleged thieves are said to have made off with around $92 million in the biggest cash heist in British history.  Murray was the only one to escape the British courts, but he was picked up in Morocco for cocaine possession and has since been locked up while they tried to sort through his citizenship and extradition status.  

When the court ruled that he was a citizen (Morocco doesn’t extradite its citizens, no matter what the crime) and released, it seemed like every criminal’s fairy tale was about to come true.  But British authorities immediately filed a formal request to have him tried for the crime in Morocco.  The Brits apparently wanted Murray so badly they offered to trade suspected terrorist Mohamed Karbouzi in exchange for getting their hands on the fighter.

Now Murray will be tried and, if convicted, sentenced under Moroccan law.  And we’re guessing they don’t deal lightly with bank robbers there.

@831 Son...

He's not a faggot. Faggots gargle semen. They often are quite educated.

UFC Fan is more of an asshole. Talks out of his ass. High Self-Worth even though no one (not even his mother) loves him.

With a user name as well thought out as UFC fan, it's not a surprise he's a stupid douchebag.

Lee Muray is still one of the best UK MMA fighters and probably the hottest prospect the UK has seen.

Shame he couldn't control his anger and got kicked from the UFC after his first fight for nearly beating someone to death in a fit of road rage.

This is how every cage fighter acts! Which is why you can't fight here!
Kim Couture is a cunt- June 25, 2009 at 9:27 am
@ UFC Fan,

hey bud, we carrrrrreeee because Lee Murray is a bit of a legend in the sport, albiet, all the wroung reason but still a legend. Big bar brawls with several UFC fighters (dropping Tito in the mayhem) not to mention the biggest bank hiest in Euro history. And lets not forget he went the distance with the spider and he says he was the toughest guy he ever fought.

So in hindsight what did we learn todayyyyyyyyy? Lee Murray woulda been a HUGE star in MMA especially with the way the UFC is moving into Europe and we all know your a fan of the UFC, UFC fan. But he fucked it all up not seeing the big picture. Since your a new fan, it would be the equivilent to Mike Bisping fucking up royally.

UFC Fan, it's cool to be a newb, everyone was new to this sport at some point. Just don't throw the rest of us long time supporters undr your "we" banner because I love getting Lee Murray updates. There are fighters that existed before the 3rd season of The Ultimate Fighterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...........

Of course they didn't go for that trade. It was complete shit.

England has to sweeten the deal: Lee Murray for Mohamed Karbouzi + 2 terrorist prospects to be named later. I hear there's this kid in Uzbekistan with a 100-mph Molotov Cocktail Curveball.
