UFC just released newly-signed German fighter Timo Feucht after some alleged past neo-nazi ties emerged, sources confirmed BJPenn.com following a report from MMA Fighting.
Timo Feucht (8-1 MMA) was supposed to compete later this summer on Dana White’s Contender Series, but eventually inked a multi-bout deal with the UFC. He should have made his promotional debut against Kenneth Bergh on July 15 in Abu Dhabi at Fight Island’s facility.
“There was a time in my life when I wasn’t the focused athlete and dad that I am now. Yes, I did things in my past that I am not proud of. I was a fanatic football fan and I kicked over the traces. But there were moments that have led me to reconsider who I wanted to be in life”, Feucht stated.
“There is just one thing that I’m asking for: Please don’t judge me based on things that happened almost five years ago. I was immature and hanging with the wrong crowd. Please see what I have sacrificed to make it here. Please see the man I have become. I discovered Martial Arts and that has saved my life. The sport has led me onto the right path. I want nothing more than becoming a role model for young kids who have had to go through the same that I did”, the German concluded.
