UFC fighter in bout with unusual betting facing discipline

by David Purdum, ESPN


The Nevada State Athletic Commission is planning disciplinary action against MMA fighter Darrick Minner for failing to disclose an injury ahead of a Nov. 6 UFC bout that was flagged for suspicious betting.

Jeff Mullen, executive director of the NSAC, told ESPN on Thursday that Minner will be on the agenda at the commission’s next meeting Dec. 14 over “disciplinary action for non-disclosure on his pre-fight medical form.” Mullen declined to elaborate further.

The NSAC, during a meeting Wednesday, suspended UFC fighter Ilir Latifi for three months for not disclosing an illness to commission doctors before an Oct. 1 fight. It was the first time a fighter has faced disciplinary action from the commission for not disclosing an injury or illness.

Disciplinary action for Minner also was referenced during the Wednesday meeting but it was tabled and put on the Dec. 14 agenda. A message to Minner’s manager, Andrew Lee of Disorderly Conduct Management, seeking comment was not immediately returned.
