‘Waiting for justice’: Fighters react to UFC ban, NSAC suspension of James Krause

The UFC has taken a firm stance in the James Krause betting scandal.

On Friday, the promotion issued a statement to all of its fighters and their managers stating “fighters who choose to continue to be coached by Krause or who continue to train in his gym, will not be permitted to participate in UFC events pending the outcome of the aforementioned government investigations.”

Krause is currently at the center of an ongoing betting investigation after abnormal activity was discovered before his fighter Darrick Minner faced Shayilan Nuerdanbike at UFC Fight Night 214. The Nevada State Athletic Commission has suspended Krause’s license amid the investigation.

In the memo, the UFC also announced Minner was released from the promotion.
