Top UFC welterweight fighter Matt Brown was recently involved in the alleged beating of a high-school janitor his jiu jitsu coach.

Local police opted to not file charges due to a lack of evidence, and Brown proclaimed his innocence to the world.

Fast forward a week, and the alleged victim in the case isn’t letting it go, and instead has asked for the case to be reopened.

MMAJunkie.com has it:

A city prosecutor will re-review Rodrigo Botti’s case two weeks after police declined to file charges in relation to an alleged assault by UFC welterweight Matt Brown.

Gregory S. Peterson, a prosecutor with the Hilliard (Ohio) mayor’s court, said he met with Botti after the jiu-jitsu coach filed his own complaint with the court seeking another review of his case.

“In misdemeanor offenses like this, the law allows us to prosecute what we refer to as a private filing,” Peterson told MMAjunkie. “A private filing can be filed against any citizen that wants to bring a charge.”
