WSOF Cuts Ties With Dustin Holyko Due to Neo-Nazi Tattoos & Criminal Past
Posted by Larry Csonka on 07.08.2014

- According to MMAjunkie.com, WSOF has released fighter Dustin Holyko due to his criminal past and "Neo-Nazi Tattoos". Holyko competed on the undercard of WSOF 11, but his fight did make the NBC broadcast. WSOF released the following statement on the situation…

"Honestly, we were not aware of Dustin Holyko's criminal record or any potentially offensive tattoos prior to him competing at WSOF 11. He was licensed by the Florida commission prior to the fight, and it was his third professional fight under their jurisdiction. That said, with the information that has since come to light, we immediately elected to terminate our relationship with Mr. Holyko."

Holyko has several criminal charges filed against him, including domestic violence, animal cruelty, felony battery domestic violence and domestic battery by strangulation. The fighter served over two years in jail for robbery with a non-deadly weapon and is currently on probation for the offense. He also has tattoos associated with white supremacist groups, including the iron cross, Nazi "SS" lightning bolt, and the words "white" and "pride" on his arms.

In an interview, Holyko addressed several of the charges in his criminal history and his tattoos, noting the following…

"When I was 18, I went to prison, and I got white pride tattooed on my arms because prison is pretty racially separated. I am proud of my race, but I'm not racist or any kind of Nazi. One of my trainers, Mike Vasquez, he's Puerto Rican and Spanish, and he's like a dad to me. A lot of my training partners and friends are from different races. I have not a racist bone in my body at all."
