Report: UFC heavyweight arrested in organized crime sting

New, 12 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight slugger, Adam Wieczorek, was arrested in Chorzow, Poland, on Tuesday as part of a large sting that netted 10 suspects, accused of alleged participation in organized crime, kidnapping, drug trafficking, assault, and robbery.

That’s according to a report from Wyborcza.pl (via RT Sport).

As the Polish Police official Twitter account announced on Wednesday, Wieczorek, 26, was arrested among a group of football hooligans under the name of Psycho Fans, associated with the football team Ruch Chorzow’s fan movement.

Wieczorek (10-2) made his Octagon debut at the UFC Fight Night 121 mixed martial arts (MMA) event back in late 2017, taking a unanimous decision win over Anthony Hamilton after three rounds of action. “Siwy” followed that up by submitting Arjan Singh Bhullar at UFC on FOX 30 the following April, but saw his nine-fight winning streak come to an end against Marcos Rogerio de Lima at UFC 230 in New York.

Don’t expect to see him back inside the cage anytime soon.
