It appears Brandon Saling may soon be a fighter without a home…anywhere.

During Saturday night’s Strikeforce event it was brought to the attention of the officials both at the Ohio Athletic Commission as well as Strikeforce officials that Saling had an extensive criminal background, not to mention Nazi symbols tattooed on his body.

The result of Saling’s actions have left him without a fight license in Ohio.

Bernie Profato, Executive Director of the Ohio Athletic Commission, confirmed with MMAWeekly.com that they have revoked Saling’s fight license after Saturday night’s event in Columbus.

Saling’s license was revoked for ‘falsifying his license application he filled out on 2/18/12' according to Profato.

The falsification stems from his failure to disclose his past criminal background, which includes being listed as a registered sex offender in the state of Ohio.

Saling was convicted of ‘gross sexual imposition’ after a 2004 incident in which he was charged with the rape of a girl under the age of 13.

Saling has also been convicted on domestic violence charges as well from an incident in 2008.

The commission has now yanked his license for falsifying the information when applying to the state for his fight in February when he competed under the NAAFS organization in Cleveland.

UPDATE: New Jersey State Athletic Control board counsel Nick Lembo has also confirmed that their commission has also yanked Brandon Saling’s license for ‘failure to disclose and failure to answer truthfully.’
