    UFC Hall of Fame fighter linked to $112M conspiracy

    Detroit A hall of fame Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter, a boxer, a cage fighter and a mixed martial artist were implicated Thursday in a $112 million health-care conspiracy, one day after a muscle-bound doctor was indicted by a federal grand jury.

    The hall of fame fighter, a former UFC champion, is not identified in a 16-page court filing charging Josh Burns, 40, of Dexter, a former heavyweight mixed martial artist and bare-knuckle brawler, with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. in a bribery and kickback scheme.

    I mean, I wouldn't be surprised. But I don't think Faber is that type of person.

    Like....as in Urijah Faber??
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Doesn't sound like Faber, the article says HOF'er and former UFC champion.....that eliminates Faber.......my first thought when I saw this was Mark Coleman

    Faber was inducted to the HOF last year. The article names him too, but the discussions I seen talked about him more. I think it's to do with his fighters being given match ups they won't lose, or can't lose. Faber is linked to the Doctor involved by way of a partnership up until 2013, between him, his gym and the Doc.

    I'm like you and Merc though, doesn't sound like Faber, he seems to be too smart to get mixed up in anything like this.......but you never know!

    I'm confused a little...I thought it was more to do with selling urine or some shady shit with urine tests

    Yes, for this guy in the article specifically......like I said, I just seen some media guys discussing it more on Twitter. I think the story is about more than what the article alone is saying, there is more to come.
