Former Sengoku champion, Bellator fighter accused of domestic violence

Former Sengoku featherweight champion and Bellator MMA competitor Marlon Sandro has been accused of domestic violence.  The 40-year old Brazilian allegedly attacked his fiancée, Tayssa Wuensche on Thursday morning in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The couple got engaged just last month.

In the photo below you can see that Wuesche is in the hospital with an injured arm and bruising to the eye and area around it.

The assault allegedly took place around 4 a.m. after the couple returned home from a soccer match between rival teams. It is said to have happened in the Sao Salvador Square in Catete, Rio de Janeiro. According to one of Wuensche’s friends, Sandro grabbed Wuensche while she attempted to enter a taxi, throwing her on the ground and injuring her arm and knee. Sandro then allegendly choked Wuensche out with his hands in the middle of the street and hit her again multiple times after she woke up. Wuensche confirmed her friend’s account of the incident in an interview to Combate.

você que está lendo este post pode achar chocante estar lendo esse post. Pode estar se perguntando como alguém tem a coragem de se expor dessa forma. Se você pensou desse jeito, reflita. a pergunta correta é " Como alguém pode ter A CORAGEM DE FAZER ISSO COM UM SER HUMANO". Até quando monstros como @marlon_gladiator sairão impunes de casos de violência como estes em plena praça São Salvador no Rio de Janeiro. Qual o direito que esse monstro acha que tem de espancar a propria namorada ou qualquer outra pessoa? Ė porque aprendeu MMA e é lutador que se acha no direito de resolver tudo na porrada? pois esses não são oa ensinamentos da luta. qual argumento ou fato que justifica isso? Nenhum. Nada nunca justificará agressão. NADA NUNCA JUSTIFICARÁ MEXER COM A INTEGRIDADE SEJA FÍSICA MENTAL OU MORAL DE NENHUM SER HUMANO. que se possa fazer justiça. Tenho a certeza de que seu mentor #dedepederneiras não lhe ensinou que tudo se resolve na porrada. Tay, que você possa sacudir essa poeira, tascar um bom par de saltos e sambar na cara desse sujeito, pois #espancadordemulher nenhum passará por nós! Conte comigo. Compartilhem essa publicação porque esse cara precisa ser preso! #mexeucomumamexeucomtodas #agressoresnaopassarao

“What I plan on doing from now on is to find my peace. To be in peace,” Wuensche told MMA Fighting. “This episode will be in the past and I may get back up again and be well. I died inside right now. But I have no intentions of filing charges in the police station because we had a great family, I’m crazy for his kids, and I only think about him — even though he didn’t think of his kids when he did this, I think about them now. Of course that I don’t want any trouble for him, I simply want distance now.”

Sandro holds a professional mixed martial arts record of 26-7-2. He was known to train at legendary Brazilian MMA gym Nova União, howeverfounder André Pederneiras, says Sandro is no longer with the team.  Sandro fought 11 times under the Bellator MMA banner from 2010 to 2014.
