Domestic Violence Rears Its Ugly Head for UFC Fighter Andrea Lee

Thus far, Andrea Lee’s short UFC career has seen her win in her sole trip to the Octagon, and then get totally embroiled in a public uproar over her husband’s Nazi tattoos. And now her husband, Donny Aaron, is accused of committing all sorts of ugly domestic violence against her.

This is not how UFC careers are supposed to go.

The details are pretty horrific, and they paint an awful picture of Aaron, who will soon have a warrant out for his arrest according to MMAFighting.

An arrest warrant is “forthcoming” for the husband of UFC fighter Andrea Lee, per the Shreveport (La.) Police Department.

Donny Aaron will be facing charges of false imprisonment and domestic violence battery stemming from an incident that occurred late night Aug. 4 into the morning hours of Aug. 5, according to an incident report obtained by MMA Fighting from the Shreveport PD. MyMMANews.com was the first to publish information from the report Tuesday.

Shreveport PD spokesperson Cpl. Angie Willhite told MMA Fighting on Wednesday that an arrest warrant is “forthcoming.”

The police incident report states that officers responded to a domestic incident involving two people who have been legally married for approximately five years with one child together in the early morning hours of Aug. 5. Photographs were taken and detectives were notified, but no contact was made with the suspect. Lee sustained a minor injury in the alleged attack, per the report. The report indicates that there was a weapon used in the alleged battery.

Here’s hoping Lee is able to get back into the cage soon and put all this crap behind her.

Requiem for a Gleison Tibau

Brazilian fire hydrant Gleison Tibau is no longer a UFC fighter.

Normally, a fighter not getting their contract renewed wouldn’t be newsworthy, especially if they never held a UFC title. But this situation is different. Why? These are the facts:

  • Tibau has been fighting in the Octagon since UFC 65 back in 2006 (his opponent: Nick Diaz).
  • He’s had 28 UFC fights since then. Um, that’s a lot.
  • Although he lost his last four bouts, he’s had a pretty good career, beating the likes of Rafael dos Anjos and Jeremy Stephens, plus a lot of other pretty tough dudes.
  • It’s worth mentioning again that he’s been a UFC fighter for nearly 12 years. That’s a long time!

It’s unclear where Tibau will fight next. But even if he were to hang up the gloves, that’s fine. He’s had a helluva career.

Here’s MMAFighting with Tibau talking about his prospects:

Tibau told MMA Fighting he has yet to sign with another promotion, but has received offers from all around the world.

“There are many offers coming, but nothing is set yet,” Tibau said. “Rizin offered me a fight with Takanori Gomi on two weeks’ notice, but I was in Brazil, I was taking care of my cookie business and wasn’t even training, so I couldn’t take it. ACB also sent me an offer, but then they cancelled some cards, so I turned it down.

“Bellator asked me to wait a little bit, but they are interested. There’s also a promotion from Abu Dhabi, another one in Russia as well. I will sign one-fight deals only so I remain free.”

It Will Be a Cold Day In Hell Before Raphael Assuncao Gets a Title Shot

Brazilian stalwart Raphael Assuncao has done the work and put in the time, and in 13 appearances in the Octagon, has only lost twice. He’s also gone 1-1 against bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw. But it will be a cold day in hell before Assuncao ever gets a title shot.

This is the sad truth, and it stems from the fact that… well… the dude simply isn’t popular enough.

Assuncao knows this. He knows that he, above just about everyone else, deserves a crack at Dillashaw’s belt, and that he won’t get it because the general public has no clue who he is.

As per MMAFighting:

“I don’t know any other reason I shouldn’t be the next guy, unless they go by Twitter followers,” Assuncao told MMA Fighting. “If they go by Twitter followers, then I probably won’t be that guy. And I can cry about it but that’s the truth, right? There’s nothing more I can do about it other than campaign and try to be a truthful guy. If they go by who has the most Twitter followers and Instagram followers, then I probably won’t be that guy. But if they go by the most deserving, the most consistent, and one of the best fighters in the division, I’ll be that guy. I’d definitely be that guy.

“I’ve never missed weight. I’m the most consistent guy in this division, probably up there with T.J., because T.J. is a pretty consistent champion,” Assuncao added. “I think he’s one of the most consistent guys out there. Other than myself and T.J., there’s no other fighter in there who’s as consistent as we are.”

Let’s conduct a little science experiment. Let’s keep track of how many times his name is inserted into the conversation when it comes to the UFC drumming up interest in finding a suitable opponent for Dillashaw.
