Bellator MMA and promotion president Scott Coker found themselves in hot water earlier this week after former employee and longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Zach Light accused them multiple ethical and legal wrongdoings.
Including but not limited to falsified medical records, according to Bloody Elbow.
In addition, Light accuses Coker and Bellator Vice President Rich Chou of being in cahoots and downplaying any issues found during his course of duty, along with being “pressured” to play ball, even if it meant bending (and sometimes breaking) the rules.
Like organizing “collusive fights” to get revenge on unpopular MMA managers.
The original complaint, filed in Superior Court of California (Los Angeles) on Tuesday (May 24, 2016), can be found below.
Not surprisingly, Bellator had no comment on the legal proceedings, or Light’s allegations, but no doubt more information will bubble up to the surface as this thing drags out in court.
