Diego Brandao released from UFC following battery charges
Ultimate Fighter season 14 winner Diego Brandao was released from the UFC on Thursday.
Brandao (20-11) was arrested April 15 on four charges to include aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, after he allegedly pistol-whipped a man outside of a strip-club.
Brandao was also looking at a possible suspension for testing positive for marijuana following UFC 195.
The UFC has not officially released a statement on Brandao’s release.
