Brian Ortega (29, USA), who has experienced UFC featherweight (-66 kg) title, has hit the K-pop star Park Jae-bum (Jay Park, 33, USA).
Park Jae-beom said he did not intend to sue, but the local public security authorities had already suspected of a crime and set out to investigate.
“USA Today” announced on September 9 (Korean time) “Dana White (51), the UFC president, hoped that the conflict between Ortega and Park Jae-bum would not turn into a legal issue.
However, shortly after the incident, the police had already prepared a report containing the crime and submitted it to the upper level. ”
Ortega and Park Jae-bum collided on the 8th at the UFC248 held at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
Park Jae-beom said on the US sports broadcasting ESPN, “I was sullen with ortega and struck with cheeks and abrasions.
After Chan-sung (33) went to the bathroom, ortega appeared and asked, ‘Are you Jay Park?’ He said so, orgtega struck me with my palm. ”
“USA Today” pointed out, “With the receipt of the police report, it became a matter for judicial authorities (ortega’s) to prosecute (regardless of Park Jaebum’s or UFC’s lack of punishment).”
President White also acknowledged the case after being asked at a press conference after the end of UFC248.
