UFC Hall of Fame expelled from US gym for not wearing a mask

Last weekend, Stephan Bonnar, a former fighter and current member of the UFC, went through an embarrassing situation. On Easter Sunday (4), the American was expelled from a gym for refusing to wear a protective mask to fight the coronavirus, a mandatory preventive measure in the United States.

The former athlete used his social media to publicize the confusion and explained why he was not wearing the mask. In the video, Bonnar shows that he is uncomfortable with the situation and adopts a denialist speech regarding the protection of the virus. Days after the fact, the American deleted the publication of his account on ‘Instagram’.

“I have been in this gym for 14 years and I was kicked out on my birthday because one of those idiots complained that I was without a mask. Guess what, I have a medical exemption. I have asthma. I’m doing you a favor, pretending I care. Masks do not help at all. Wake up, ”said Bonnar, before leaving the academy.

Stephan Bonnar took his first steps in MMA in 2001 and acted in the sport until November 2014. In his career in the sport, the American had 15 wins and nine losses in 24 presentations. His most emblematic moment in mixed martial arts happened in 2006, when he had an epic fight against Forrest Griffin, in the decision of the first edition of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’. This duel, years later, entered the Ultimate Hall of Fame as one of the best fights in the franchise’s history.
