MMA Recap, Owner

This is the second part in our multi-part story from our interview with Wes Sims.  In the previous he talked about how the fight seemed fixed, and now he details about wanting to get paid, but instead got a gun pointed at his head.

Sims then explained the money issue. “After I said I wanted my money, he threw down not even a third of what I was supposed to get paid. I said this wasn’t all of it. He started writing down numbers and then said that he paid Pavia and he left with my money. I know he didn’t cause I talked to him and he detailed how much you gave him and here’s how much you still owe me. Finally he said he needed two hours and they would get my money.

“Two hours later they called me and said they were going to take me to go get me my money. I asked why they couldn’t just get it and bring it back, but they insisted on me going with. So I realized it was 6pm and that the banks were probably closing at that point. I ask about this and they said they weren’t going to take me to a bank, but instead a Western Union.

“I get in the car, they say they are waiting for one more person. I turn around to put my seatbelt on and that’s when I heard it. Click click. There’s a gun pointed to my head. I start freaking out asking what’s going on. He says ‘no money’. I reply to keep it and to just let me live and let me out of the car. At this point they take off and all I am thinking was that I was going to get killed in Bulgaria. Then I thought I would have to fight these guys in the car, knowing that most of them had guns. Finally they put the gun down and he says ‘Bulgarian joke’. I was like joke, I damn near shit my pants.”

Even after the “joke” the promoter tried to short Sims his money and Sims again questioned it.

“So we get to the Western Union, Andre comes out and hands me money and it isn’t all there. It was short. I said it wasn’t and he said that it was all they would give me and if I wanted more, I would get it later. After that joke, I decided I just wanted to get back to the hotel and not press the issue so we went back to the hotel.

“The guy who had the gun at my head earlier, tried to give me Bulgarian money but it was still short a lot. He then told me he was going to pick me up at 5:30am to take me to the airport. I told him ok, that we would talk later. I then went and made my own arrangements and was at the airport by 3am”.

 They paid Pavia?

Guns are scary.
Glad no one got hurt.

This kind of stuff has to happen more so than not with American mma fighters going over to countries like that.

This just in...

If you agree to have a fight in an abandoned warehouse somewhere on the south side of Chicago,the "promoters" MAY screw you over.


Just saying.

Remember folks this is Wes "I never let the truth get in the way of a good story." Sims we're talking about. This could be BS.

If this was purely for attention, I'd imagine there'd be some heroics involved. Instead he behaved like any sane person would have, took what he could get and got the fuck out of there. It does seem a bit suspicious that this incident never was mentioned in the first go round tho.

But at least he didn't pull his dick out along with the gun.

just as i mentioned in the last thread, which he freaked out when mentioned because the video posted in the original thread was conveniently edited right at the moment he claims he didn't tap. wes tapped. go to 13:50



So much for the 'fixed fight' claim. There are credibility issues in this whole story.

here's a hint: when you state that you 'never let the truth get in the way of a good story', you have built in credibility issues.

 Pretty sure in Bulgaria its easier to get a real gun then a fake gun.

Definately - I went to the shop to get some chewing gum and there was a box with tazers and brass knucks in and there was a handgun with a price tag on one of the shelves where the snickers should have been



Cool Story Bro
