Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) signed 23-year-old Benjamin Brinsa earlier this week for his 13-0 record and impressive win over veteran fighter, Dan Stittgen.

UFC may be looking forward to having the German-born athlete on board, but perhaps their excitement has overshadowed protocol? If proper background checks on Brinsa aka “The Hooligan” had been completed, they most likely would’ve discovered that his nickname stems from a criminal record.

According to several German news outlets, Brinsa is affiliated with Neo-Nazi group “Scenario LOK”. According to a translation provided by CagePotato.com, Brinsa has a police record with charges of Neo-Nazi participation and hooliganism. He has been photographed posing in front of a banner reading “ultras LOK- National Resistance” alongside Thomas Persdorf, a nationally known Neo-Nazi and operator of the shipment “Front Records” that is registered as a director of a company that managed the site “Aryan Brotherhood”.

Anti-Fascist magazine, Gamma, claims that Brinsa previously worked as a janitor in the “national center” in Leipzig-Lindenau and was banned from the stadium due to violence. Additionally, he and his friend Christopher “Joker” Henze were welcomed by La Familia and courted as “two powerful new additions” with “aggressive fighting style”.

This isn’t the first time a UFC fighter was signed without proper background checks. However, after discovering that former MMA fighter, Brandon Saling, had failed to disclose a past sex crime and domestic violence charges, he was immediately suspended. So, now the question remains. Once UFC discovers Brinsa’s Neo-Nazi affiliation, will they still keep him on the roster?
