Reza-Madadi-UFC-Fuel-2-Weigh Swedish UFC lightweight Reza Madadi has been arrested  following a smash and grab that he was allegedly involved in at a handbag boutique, Bottega Veneta, in Stockholm.

On Friday morning, Expressen.se alleges that Madadi and his accomplices were banging against the door of the shop for five minutes before obtaining entry. Once inside a staff member said they cleared the store of expensive handbags estimated to be around the value of 1 million kronor ($150,000 USD).

The police set upon tracking down the get-away vehicle and were successful.

“We have two in custody. One of them is suspected of aggravated theft, and the other for abetting larceny,” prosecutor Olof Calmvik said.

It’s not the first time that Madadi has been in trouble with the law. He was charged for various offenses in the early 2000s, before being suspected of involvement in a cash coupe in 2009, but was acquitted of the latter charge.

My client denied the charges against him. I cannot say much more until we see how this evolved,” Madadi’s lawyer Ivan Fialdini said.

Madadi last fought in April against Michael Johnson in Stockholm, where he won via submission in round three. It was the 32-year-old’s second win in three UFC fights since joining the company in 2012. He was due to fight Michael Chiesa at UFC on Fox 8 on July 27, but the fight was called off two weeks ago after Madadi encountered visa issues.

UFC officials were unavailable for comment at the time of publishing.
