Former UFC Fighter Indicted For Fight Fixing

Former UFC lightweight Tae Hyun Bang was indicted by the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office on Monday for accepting a bribe of $87,950, according to Korea Herald, alongside a handful of other fighters and alleged accomplices including MMA veteran Dae-Won Kim.

This stems from Bang going from a slight underdog to massive favorite against Leo Kuntz in 2015 at UFC Fight Night 79 in South Korea. Things didn’t go according to plan and Bang reportedly had a change of heart when the fight began. That decision led to a split-decision win for the local product ad a ton of bettors out money for the folks who bet on Kuntz.

The 34-year-old Bang who will face trial without detention, has not competed since a unanimous decision loss to Nick Hein at the UFC Fight Night 93 in 2016.
