While fight fixing rumors have long been prominent in mixed martial arts, the UFC brought the issue back to the forefront with allegations of suspicious betting on a bout featuring James Krause-trained fighter Darrick Minner, with gamblers potentially taking advantage of the excellent and easy to use sportsbook options on sites like Draft Kings to place bets with inside information about Minner’s injured knee which produced a TKO loss. Accusations claimed that Krause shared this information on a secret discord, heinously defrauding kindly sportsbooks of their well-earned money. Minner isn’t the only fighter caught up in the investigation, with Flyweight standout Jeff Molina also suspended under suspicion of having participated in the scheme, in a move that is anything but Kingly.
