MMA fighter suspended for having Adolf Hitler tattooed

Published: Wednesday, January 12, 2022 1

The fighter Radek Rousal has been eliminated from a fight after it was discovered that he has several tattoos with neo-Nazi meanings, mainly the face of Adolf Hitler on his arm or the skull with an ‘SS’ cap on his chest.

Rousal, of Czech origin, was going to make the leap from kickboxing to mixed martial arts debuting in Oktagon MMA but the images etched on her skin have changed everything. “You can’t come with us,” said the show’s promoter, Ondrej Novotny, despite having a match already scheduled against Slovak Nikolas Krivak.

“We have a clause on that in the contract, we could fine him. It is totally justified that there is a protest, at no time before have we seen those tattoos,” he added.

However, the Czech fighter wanted to clarify that tattoos belong to past ideas: “I grew up in a community with problems. At that time, I did not know what to do with my life. I was young and this tattoo is stupid. Later I started with martial arts, which gave me a different way of life and thinking. I have more tattoos that I regret. I will keep changing them all. And I want to apologize for that. “

Rousal is one of the promises of MMA, has a record of 19 wins and 5 losses. Although he is currently suspended, from the company they trust his ideological change and the disappearance of those tattoos so that he can return to his professional career in wrestling.
