World Series of Fighting severed ties with Dustin Holyko, a fighter after finding out he had an extensive criminal history.
Holyko has a 2-1 Pro record in the state of Florida.
Holyko competed on Saturday’s WSOF 11 card at Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Fla., losing via second-round rear-naked choke to Neiman Gracie. The Main card of WSOF was stacked and the fights were stacked with talented fighters.
The extensive criminal history was not brought to light until after the fights completion and WSOF released:
“Honestly, we were not aware of Dustin Holyko’s criminal record or any potentially offensive tattoos prior to him competing at WSOF 11. He was licensed by the Florida commission prior to the fight, and it was his third professional fight under their jurisdiction. That said, with the information that has since come to light, we immediately elected to terminate our relationship with Mr. Holyko.”
This subject brings up a lot of mixed feelings. People have since brought into question WSOF role in this or where the blame lies, others have brought up other fighters with questionable tattoos, as well other fighters who have criminal history.
Regardless of your thoughts on this matter the
fact is he is a prelim fighter with a 2-1 record who is now getting more media attention then the rest of the card from WSOF 11.
