UFC's Madadi arrested on suspicion of burglary


The UFC's Reza Madadi was last seen in the Octagon in April's UFC on Fuel TV 9 event, earning a submission of the night victory over Michael Johnson in his home country of Sweden. Madadi earned a $60,000 bonus on top of his purse, but according to a local tabloid, the bonus may not have been enough as they allege Madadi was recently part of a buglary:

Swedish tabloid Ekspressen reported Sunday that the fighter and an associate allegedly broke into a designer handbag store before making off with $150,000 (U.S.) worth of stolen goods.

Madadi and the associate face charges of aggravated theft and abetting larceny, according to Swedish authorities. If convicted, they face up to six years in jail. Prosecutors will decide today whether to detain or release them.

Madadi lawyer Ivan Fialdini denied his client's involvement in the crimes.
