FBI involved in suspicious UFC brawl investigation – media

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has joined the investigation into the circumstances of the “suspicious” Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fight between an American Darrick Miner and Chinese Representative Shailan Nurdanbek, ESPN reports.

The featherweight bout took place on November 5 in Las Vegas and ended with Nurdanbek winning by first-round technical knockout. The fight aroused suspicion due to the sharp increase in betting volume on a certain outcome hours before the start. Several bookmakers have reported increased interest in betting on Nurdanbek to win by knockout in the first round and that the fight will last less than 2.5 rounds.

The material indicates that the FBI is collecting information on this fight and has also conducted a survey of the people. US Integrity and the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) are also investigating.

In December, the NSAC announced the suspension of Minner and his trainer James Krause pending disciplinary action for failing to provide pre-fight injury information to Nurdanbek.
