Roufusport Statement and Newman Apology
Friday, August 3, 2018 (Milwaukee, WI USA) The following is an apology from Roufusport MMA Fight Team member Jordan Newman for an incident that took place following his successful amateur MMA debut bout against Josh Moody on Pure FC 9, Saturday, July 28, 2018 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I apologize to Josh, to his coaches, Pure FC and staff, to the fight referee, to the ringside doctor, to the governing bodies of the sport and staff, to the media covering the event, to my Roufusport coaches, teammates and staff, to my family and friends, and, most importantly, to the many devoted fans of MMA who demand, and fairly deserve, so much better in my conduct than was shown last Saturday. Without all of you, I would not have had this opportunity.
I can do better, and I commit to all that I will do better. I fully appreciate the privilege of being an MMA fighter associated with Roufusport.”
