WSOF suspends Vagab Vagabov for five months following post-fight infraction
While he picked up a win at this past weekend’s WSOF 23 event, undefeated middleweight prospect Vagab Vagabov will be sidelined for five months for losing his cool after his victory over Brian Grinnell. WSOF Executive Vice President and matchmaker Ali Abdelaziz today told MMAjunkie that the promotion issued the sanctions because Vagabov clearly struck Grinnell multiple times after referee Al Guinee waved off the pair’s preliminary contest in the second round. “I spoke with Vagab and his team, and they were very apologetic for his actions,” Abdelaziz said. “Vagab got caught up in the moment and expressed remorse for his mistake, but as a company, we simply cannot let moments like this go without addressing them directly. “We hope this penalty sends a strong message to everyone on our roster that such infractions simply will not be tolerated.”
