Sean Salmon Fined By The Ohio Athletic Commission For Throwing A Fight


Former UFC fighter Sean Salmon gets suspended one year and fined $2,500 by the Ohio Athletic Commission (OAC) for “not fighting to the best of his ability” and “conduct detrimental to the sport”. Salmon’s fine came after he posted a blog on MMAJunkie, where he stated,

“He went for an armbar, I defended it (only to prove to myself that he couldn’t get it), and then I put my arm back in to give him the win so that I could return to England, healthy … Just so you all know, that is the most embarrassing thing that I have ever admitted out loud.”

Sean Salmon lost the fight to Allan Weickert by armbar submission at NAAFS Fight Nite in the Flats 5 on June 6th in Ohio.
