Caio Magalhaes had his license temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) after he spit at Josh Samman at the conclusion of their bout at at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 21 Finale on July 12, 2015, from inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Now, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) UFC middleweight contender will have to ride the pine a bit longer after the NSAC suspend the fighter for a period of six months during yesterday’s (Oct. 30, 2015) mandated hearing in “Sin City.”
Magalhaes had his four-fight win streak snapped by Samman after the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt tapped out to a rear-naked choke early in round one. Afterward, frustration clearly got the best of Magalhaes, as he refused to shake Samman’s hand and proceeded to spit a collection of saliva and blood toward his direction.
Aside from his six-month sit, Caio was sentenced to 40 hours of community service for his transgression.
On the bright side, Magalhaes avoided a monetary fine after the NSAC members showed a soft side thanks to the Brazilian’s pleas for mercy.
Turning a new leaf?
