A former ultimate fighting champion facing sentencing for tax fraud broke down in tears today when he heard a friend describe in court his charity work helping his terminally ill son.



Ian Freeman - dubbed The Machine by ultimate fighting fans - sobbed as David Scott told how he had helped his son Lewis, who is dying from cancer.



Freeman was before Newcastle Crown Court to be sentenced for a three-year tax fraud.

There are some priceless quotes in this article:

On jailing Freeman:
"It will be quite catastrophic for his wife, his family and the community at large."

On Freeman entering false information on a loan application:
"I knew it was naughty but when you want the house of your dreams, you know," he said.


..but he helped some/a lot of people so I guess the judge decided to be lenient.
