In late July, we gave you the heads-up that a recent UFC signee named Benjamin Brinsa had been accused of having ties with Neo-Nazism and hooligan groups. Though Brinsa vehemently denied the accusations and called it a “smear campaign,” UFC president Dana White promised to look into the claims.
A month and a half later, the UFC has made a decision — Brinsa’s UFC contract has been terminated. MMAFighting confirmed the news with the promotion.
Considering that the undefeated welterweight was already becoming persona non grata in his native country for his dubious associations, the UFC release could be a career-killer. Brinsa has not yet issued a public statement about the news; we’ll update you if and when he does.
