    -Tae Hyun Bang was approached by alleged members of Korean mafia prior to his bout vs. Leo Kuntz at UFC Fight Night Seoul.
    _Bang was offered approximately US$92k to throw the fight
    -UFCwas notified of a massive shift in the betting lines right before the fight, and confronted both fighters.
    -Bang changed his mind, and fought to win, which he did.
    -Bang, having bet half the money on himself to lose before the UFC confronted him, now feared for his life, owing a ton of money to gangsters, and went to the police.
    -Bang and the three alleged fight fixers were sentenced to prison time Friday in Seoul, ROK.

    Makes you think how many other fighters were ''approached'' and actually followed through with the scam...

    I see Bang as a warrior against the betting mafia.
    Well done.

    This. To take the money and then double cross the mafia sounds like a bad career move.

    Bang snitched out organized crime members. This after accepting their bribe and betting against himself....This could end poorly for Bang.

    Going to prison with the gangsters? Good luck.

    The gangsters should get a hold of Chael for their next bet. They'll have a sure thing on the fix. He can work a fight better than the rest.

    Lol yeah major fail. Pretty bad when you don't even win the money you bet against yourself & now you have a price tag on your head. Not good

    How about snitching prior to the fight? Possibly alerting UFC officials that the fights been compromised? Dude snitched after double crossing his partners. Partners who just so happen to be mafia killers..Lol.
