Jake Heun sentenced to seven years in prison for drug trafficking

Jake Heun, 34, was recently sentenced to seven years and nine months in prison for drug charges at the County Court of Victoria, Australia.

According to a report from Knockdown News, Heun “previously pleaded guilty to importing a commercial quantity of methamphetamine in September 2020 and trafficking cocaine between May 2019 and September 2020.”

The report states that the Australian Border Force (ABF) found a leaking cardboard box entering the country which contained 801 grams of pure methamphetamine. The package was labeled as “bath gel and cologne” and addressed to Heun which prompted an investigation. Police later found Heun near the location and brought him in for questioning.

It is alleged that Heun, a professional mixed martial artist who goes by the nickname “The Honey Bear,” mailed out between 35 and 40 grams of cocaine last year before he was arrested.

During questioning, Heun stated that he was paid $1,000 to pick up the package. The fighter’s phone became part of the investigation which revealed photos of cocaine and text messages between Heun and bartenders who were distributing the illegal contraband he allegedly provided them.

Heun’s prison sentence includes time served.

Jake Heun competed on the Ultimate Fighter seasons 17 and 19, as well as World Series of Fighting, RIZIN, and several other promotions. His pro MMA record stands at 15-9.
