Former Ultimate Fighter: Brazil competitor Alexandre “Sangue” Ramos is in a lot of hot water at the moment. According to a report from Combate, the fighter, who boasts a 10-3 record as a pro, was arrested last month in Portugal for drug trafficking. The arrest came as Ramos was caught trying to enter the country with two kilos of cocaine, per Combate. Ramos appeared briefly in the first season of TUF Brazil.
Ramos is looking at a possible prison sentence of four to ten years as a result. Nor is it the first time the fighter has had a run in with the law. In 2009, he was involved in a soccer brawl in his native Brazil. That led to his expulsion from Shogun Rua’s gym.
On the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil in 2012, “Sangue” failed to win his elimination fight, and did not make it onto the show as a result. He continued fighting, however, most recently picking up a submission win over Wesley Oliveira last April at AFC 35.
Given the circumstances, the twenty-eight year old’s MMA career may be on hold for some time, if not over.
