In a shocking turn of events, former MMA fighter Willie "Monster" Floyd has been indicted as part of the Donald Trump GA RICO case. Alongside 18 allies, Trump faces charges in Georgia for their alleged efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss in the state. The 98-page indictment, which accuses the defendants of engaging in a "criminal racketeering enterprise," includes accusations of pressuring election workers and attempting to steal data from a voting machine company.
The case has brought together an unusual cast of characters, including a bail bondsman, Kanye West’s former publicist, and a former mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. Harrison William Prescott Floyd and Trevian C. Kutti, two lesser-known defendants, are accused of attempting to intimidate Fulton County elections worker Ruby Freeman into falsely admitting to committing election fraud.
Floyd, known for his time in the MMA as "Willie ‘Monster’ Floyd," holds a 3-4 professional record and has not fought since a 2015 submission loss in Baltimore, Maryland. However, his involvement in this case has shed light on his past connections and activities.
Uncovering the Conspiracy
According to the indictment, Floyd was solicited by fellow defendant Stephen Cliffgard Lee, a former police officer-turned-Lutheran chaplain, to speak with Freeman. Floyd then enlisted Kutti, a former publicist for Kanye West and R. Kelly, to travel to Atlanta and meet with Freeman. The publicist visited Freeman’s Georgia home and spoke with her at a local police precinct under officer supervision in January 2021.
During their conversation, Kutti expressed concern for Freeman’s safety and urged her to cooperate, stating that she had 48 hours to speak with her to "get ahead of the issue." The police report from January 2021 reveals that Kutti believed Freeman was in danger due to the election.
Freeman’s Difficult Situation
Freeman, who testified before the House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, earlier this year, described the challenging circumstances she faced after Rudy Giuliani publicly accused her of election fraud. The accusations forced Freeman into hiding, fearing for her safety.
Both Floyd and Kutti have been charged with three felony counts, including conspiracy to commit solicitation of false statements and writings, as well as influencing witnesses. The indictment paints a disturbing picture of their alleged involvement in the scheme to overturn the election results.
MMA Fighters and Trump
Floyd is not the first MMA fighter to align himself with Donald Trump. Over the years, many MMA fighters have campaigned for Trump, while the sport’s leading organization, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), maintains a close relationship with the former president. Trump’s appearance at UFC 290 in July was met with enthusiastic applause from the crowd, demonstrating the ongoing support he receives from the MMA community.
The indictment against Trump and his allies marks a significant development in the ongoing legal battles surrounding the 2020 election. As the case unfolds, more shocking details are likely to emerge, shedding light on the extent of the alleged conspiracy and the individuals involved.
