The UFC just re-signed a fighter who spent 14 months in prison for burglary.
The Swedish fighter, Reza Madadi, already has a 2-1 record with the promotion and his last fight, before going to prison, was a win against top UFC lightweight Michael Johnson.
Here’s what the fighter had to say on The MMA Hour:
“I had my car outside of that garage and I wanted to pick up my car, because we wanted to go to Russia, me and some guys from my club, Allstars gym. They arrested me outside of that garage because the garage was involved in that smash and grab. And I never thought I was going to go to jail… but now I’m here and that is my past.”
“The day after, I was in some jail. They drove me in a police car and my life changed. They cut my UFC contract. I lost my job, I couldn’t see my wife when she was pregnant. I lost money. Everything. I lost everything over one night. Everything I’ve been working for 34, 35 years.”
