Former UFC fighter Cain Carrizosa arrested after allegedly punching woman, giving her a seizure

Cain Carrizosa, 36, a professional mixed martial artist, was charged in Washington County, Utah’s Fifth District Court with aggravated assault — domestic violence (second-degree felony) and robbery (second-degree felony), according to a report from ABC4.com’s Ryan Bittan.

Carrizosa, who also goes by “Cain Castillo” has been charged after allegedly assaulting a woman on two separate occasions, one of which involved the fighter punching the woman in the back of her head, which caused her to have a seizure when talking to police.

According to the report, “the first incident occurred on March 24, 2022, when St. George Police responded to a fight involving Castillo and the victim.

“Upon arrival, police saw the victim “disoriented with scraps on her knees,” which she said was due to being pushed by Castillo. She also told police that Castillo had punched her in the back of her head.

The report continues, “Police say she was eventually taken to the hospital to be evaluated, however, when talking to law enforcement, the woman fainted and had a seizure. Witnesses reportedly corroborated her claims of being punched in the back of her head.

“The woman told police that she had been in an argument with Castillo when she left to get her purse, and Castillo followed her. A probable cause affidavit states that while she was retrieving her purse from a vehicle, Castillo shoved her. She then walked away, the affidavit states, when Castillo punched her in the back of her head.”

Police later found out Castillo’s real name is Carrizosa on January 1, when responding to another fight he was involved in.

Castillo was arrested and taken to the Washington County Jail.

Carrizosa, whose fight nickname is “The Insane”, holds a pro MMA record of 11-5.  He has fought for promotions such as Bellator, Cage Warriors, CFFC, and others, including two fights in the UFC.  In his first fight at UFC 177 in 2014, Carrizosa was submitted in the first-round by Chris Wade.  He then lost a unanimous decision to Leonardo Mafra in 2015.

Carrizosa’s last pro MMA fight took place a year ago in January 2022.
