And MiddleEasy.com blows the remainder of its 2011 budget by having a text-a-text with the former mixed martial artist:

"...There's a guy here who was a kickboxing champion Zakaria Moussaoui. Me and him do some Thai training, pad work sparring or kettle-bells, then at 5pm the door closes again till the morning. I have something to eat at 6pm, then i pass some time by reading some books or mags, watch some DVDs, UFC, movies. I see a great porno of Tito's wife getting the life f***** out of her by a bunch of dudes. That was pretty fun...not for him i bet :) Then at 10pm I eat again and about 1-2am i sleep. It's not too bad. Not the first three years four months I done by myself in solitary confinement. I didn't see no one. It was a f***** hole with rats & s*** coming out the hole u piss in It's not a prob when you piss, it's a prob when you have to squat over it to take a s***, praying a rat don't jump out and grab your balls :)"

The one-time UFC fighter was sentenced to 10 years in a Moroccan prison for his involvement in the largest bank raid in British history back in 2006. "Lightning" bolted for northern Africa shortly after he and six other associates stole more than £53 million from the Securitas cash depot in Kent, England.

It was, and still is, the largest cash heist to ever go down in the history of the nation.

For years, British prosecutors tried to extradite the ex-fighter while they successfully tracked down and jailed his accomplices; however, the Moroccan government refused to ship him back because his father was of Moroccan descent.

Instead, Murray -- who was already serving three years in prison for an unrelated incident -- had his case on the bank robbery charges heard in a Moroccan court.

He is scheduled for release in 2020.

Murray defeated Jorge Rivera via first round submission (strikes) at UFC 46, which was his only appearance inside the Octagon. He is perhaps better known in the fight world for his exploits outside the cage, however, brawling with Tito Ortiz in a street fight following UFC 38 in July 2002.

Murray is 8-2 overall in mixed martial arts competition. He last fought in September of 2004 at Cage Rage 8, dropping a unanimous decision to current UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.
