Former UFC fighter Travis Fulton, who also competed for WEC, IFL, KOTC and dozens of other stateside combat sports promotions, was recently indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of sexual exploitation of a child, possession of child porn, and receipt of child porn.

That’s according to a report from The Courier.

“The Ironman,” who was already awaiting trial on charges of domestic violence, remains in custody following a plea of not guilty. His court date is tentatively scheduled for April; however, that could change depending on how things shake out with his other case.

Fulton, 43, holds a professional recored of 255-54-10 with one “no contest.” He was last seen securing a submission win (forearm choke) over Shannon Ritch at the M-1 Global “Road to M-1: USA 2” event back in April 2019.

His final UFC appearance came in a unanimous decision victory against David Dodd at UFC 21: “Return of the Champions” in summer 1999, a card headlined by the heavyweight rematch between Maurice Smith and Marco Ruas.
