I agree his life would make a pretty good film. Didn't he knock Tito out backstage at UFC 38? lol

Yes he did knock Tito out but not back stage it was in a alley of a club in the UK that the guys were having an after party at. A big fight broke out and Chuck, Pat, and few other big names were involved.

Murray was allegedly involved in a scuffle with then-UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz outside of a nightclub in London after UFC 38 in July 2002. Both drunk, Murray claims to have knocked Tito down, possibly knocking him out, and kicking him in the face. Pat Miletich, another UFC competitor, pulled Murray away and broke-up the fight. Tito denies any such events occurred.

Where in the article does it say he was released from jail?

Edit: It doesn't say anywhere in the above article of him being released, but he has been released, it is all explained in This Link

Incredible. The guy is involved with the biggest bank heist in British history and he's free a few years later....that's not right.

Yes it is, it give hope for guys like us that have to work for a living that if you pull off big Job like he did you can get away with it (if you go to anther country and seek asylum base on the fact your father was born there)

He still can't go back to England. As soon as he steps foot into a country that has extradition agreements with the United Kingdom, he will be shipped back to England and tried for the Securitas robbery.

Lee Murray is a criminal*. (That's not fighter bashing.)

Didn't chuck confirm it as well that Murray dropped Tito in club brawl?

I wish Murray kept on fighting, he would of still been in the UFC today with out a doubt. He was getting better every fight and was just starting to train with the right people too.

Now we might actually get to see Tito fight Murray haha

I think Tito would win a desicion that makes everybody saw "Lee Murray got Robbed."
