that was 5 freaking yrs ago..him and his ex-wife are gonna release a state on this..i think it's a shame..they aint together anymore and they have solved this on their own terms like real adults do..u shouldnt have to be cut from a mistake made yrs ago..i underSTAND if it was still happening right now..but again it was a mistake..him and his ex-wife will address this on wednesday from what i read..i hope they do something bout the active fighter who still act like loose cannons..ahem ahem Brandao ahem..i hope once the air is clear, the UFC brings him back..

Trujillo has 3 DV charges if I'm not mistaken.

UFC needs to look into these guys better.

I'm sure Bellator has a spot for him.

Gustafsson and Manuwa, who both headlined recently are former convicts, robbery and I think in Gus' case assault as well? (May have it confused). I believe that the problem was that Chope didn't disclose this information, and let the UFC use his military background to promote him, without knowing the circumstances around his release. Would have thought the UFC would do a bit more research to be fair, this ain't McDonalds.
Personally I believe in second chances to show the good that Martial Arts does in rehabilitating people and getting them on track.
