UFC lightweight Reza Madadi jailed 18 months for aggravated burglary in Sweden

Unless he successfully appeals, the only fighting MMA lightweight Reza Madadi will do over the next year-and-a-half is inside the prison walls.

He's no Lee Murray, but he's still doing time.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Reza Madadi is headed to the big house following a guilty verdict in Sweden, in which the courts held him accountable for aggravated burglary in connection with a smash and grab job at a local handbag boutique (details).

Kimura.se has a summary of the proceedings:

  • Reza Madadi judged guilty and must sit 1.5 years for grand larceny, and pay fined along with the other offenders.
  • Reza Madadi shall be jointly and severally with the other offender pay compensation at Image Group AB with 678,110 plus interest on the amount in accordance with § 6 of Interest Act (1975:635) from 24 May 2013 until the date of payment.
  • Reza Madadi shall be jointly and severally with the other offender pay compensation to the Åland Mutual Insurance Company with 667,213 plus interest on the amount in accordance with § 6 of Interest Act (1975:635) from 24 May 2013 until the date of payment.

Watch the entire incident unfold right here.

"Mad Dog" (13-3) got back into the win column earlier this year with a submission win over Michael Johnson at the UFC on FUEL TV 9 event in Stockholm. The 32-year-old grappler was quickly paired off against Michael Chiesa for UFC on FOX 8 in July; however, his visa issues forced him to withdraw from the bout.

And unless he successfully appeals by Sept. 6, he could be gone for good.
