Cody East’s Criminal Past May Present A Problem To The UFC

Here was also sentenced to 3 years in prison . White has mentioned before that he expects a certain code of conduct with each fighter. Even though East’s record of 11 years is behind him, it could be a dangerous move by the UFC.
The UFC has looked into cases of domestic abuse with Travis Browne and Anthony Johnson, but to add child abuse to everything is a more controversial topic when it comes to society.
