UFC Fighter Yan Cabral Robbed In Brazil

Yan Cabral told sources that part of his earnings from his UFC debut were stolen from him. Cabral, a TUF: Brazil 2 vet, earned a decision win over David Mitchell at UFC Fight Night 29. When he returned home in Rio de Janeiro, the Nova Uniao welterweight lost part of the cash he was supposed to give his manager Andre Pederneiras when he was robbed in front of the bank.

Cabral steps back in the ring on Saturday night against Zak Cummings at UFC Fight Night 40 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Heres what Cabral had to say on his next fight:

“I want to get out of there with the win, but I always fight to submit, I tried to submit David Mitchell the whole fight but he has good escapes on the ground, he’s tough. I always go for the submission, and I really hope I can get it now.”
