UFC releases Michael Graves following 2016 domestic violence arrest
UFC officials announced Monday the welterweight Michael Graves (6-0-1) has been released from the advertising after being detained in October 2016 for domestic violence. Here’s an official announcement from the UFC:
In November 2016, welterweight Michael Graves was eliminated from his UFC bout after his arrest in Fulton County, Florida. As a possible violation of the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy, the UFC company temporarily barred Graves from competition pending the conclusion of a third-party investigation. Dependent on the findings of this thorough review and analysis, UFC has suggested Graves that he has been released from his contract effective immediately. UFC needs all athletes to behave in an ethical and responsible manner, as evidenced from the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC holds its athletes to the highest standard and will continue to take appropriate action when and if justified.
