Remember The Sex Offending White Supremacist? Well, He Probably Won’t Be Fighting Anymore

Karma, if you believe in the philosophy than you already know that it can come back anytime and bite you in the butt.

In the case of one-time Strikeforce welterweight, Brandon Saling, his “karma card” just got pulled by the forces of the universe and his license to fight in the State of Ohio and New Jersey has been revoked.

We reported shortly after last weekend’s Strikeforce event that Roger Bowling’s opponent was identified as a registered sex offender and a white supremacist. According to UFC president Dana White, the athletic commission ran an investigation and found out that the fighter in question lied on his application about his past and it slipped by their audit.

“Obviously this guy is never going to fight for us again,” UFC President Dana White told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani. “For this guy to ever get licensed again he’d have to go before a hearing for the athletic commissions and I find it hard to believe that this guy will ever be licensed again. He better go find another job.”


Head on over to the next few pages to view the compiled evidence on Saling.

The number 88 found on the fighters shoulder stands for “Heil Hitler”. “H” is the eighth letter of the alphabet. Double 8’s stand for “Heil Hitler.” It is one of the most common identifiers amongst white supremacists.

The lighting bolts signify the Schutzstaffel (SS). The SS was the Nazi group that reigned during the Hitler era and is the same group responsible for the Holocaust.

Also the tattoo across the abdominal area which states “White Steel” has no real historical meaning, but it is safe to assume it signifies his “white pride” status.
