Speaking to ESPN Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) Miletich’s employers have decided to drop the UFC hall of Famer for attending the riots in the capital of the United States of America on the 6th of January. The statement reads:
“First and foremost, the LFA supports the participation of the constitutional right to peaceful protest,” the statement read. “During preparations for the 2021 debut broadcast, it was brought to the LFA’s attention that photos of questionable nature surfaced on various social media outlets involving fight analyst Pat Miletich. While the LFA continues to investigate the situation, the decision was made to remove Mr. Miletich from broadcast duties for this Friday’s LFA 97 event.”

The UFC welterweight champion announced it on his Instagram that LFA had dropped him with immediate effect. Pat Miletich is also a well renowned MMA trainer and has trained some of the best. Were LFA right to drop Miletich for attending the riots?
