What led to the arrest of Sedriques Dumass? Only a few weeks before the event, charges were brought against a UFC fighter who shares a nickname with Robert Whittaker.

Recently, Sedriques Dumas found himself in a situation where he was in violation of the law once more. An altercation with law enforcement officials in Escambia County, Florida, United States of America resulted in the arrest of the American mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran who competes in the middleweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Taking adopting the nickname “The Reaper,” which is similar to that of Robert Whittaker, a former middleweight champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Dumas is being hailed by many as a rising star in the 185-pound class.

It has been reported that the UFC prospect, who is 28 years old, was involved in an altercation with law enforcement officers in the early hours of Tuesday, February 13, 2024, in Escambia County. This came up as a result of a woman reporting Dumas to the officials.

A portion of the seasoned street fighter’s encounter with the law enforcement officers, which included their arguments and his subsequent arrest, was broadcast live on Facebook by the individual.

As can be seen in the film, the officers gave the impression that they had been informed that Dumas (9-1 mixed martial arts, 2-1 combat sports) was causing a “disturbance.” The fighter for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) stated that he was merely strolling down the street in order to “blow off some steam.”

A member of the law enforcement personnel who appeared in the video stated that the woman who had phoned them had claimed that Dumas was her boyfriend and that he was pounding on her door. It was then that “The Reaper” made the implication that they had ended their relationship by highlighting the fact that he was no longer her boyfriend and underlining that he was simply going along the street.

On the other hand, the verbal exchanges that took place between Dumas and the officers of the law became more heated. The UFC fighter was taken into custody during the incident, during which the audio became incomprehensible and Dumas disappeared from the frame of the camera. It was TMZ that broke the news about the arrest initially.

Furthermore, MMA Junkie reported that according to the records of the Escambia County jail, Dumas was charged with the felony offense of violence. Due to the fact that the mixed martial arts fighter was being held without bond as of Tuesday afternoon (February 13, 2024), it was reported. As an additional point of interest, Dumas is set to appear in court on March 5, 2024.

In addition, there is proof that Dumas has a history of conflict with the law, which may be seen in internet databases. Since 2014, “The Reaper” has been taken into custody a total of twelve times in Escambia County.

Following a confrontation that took place outside of a pub in Pensacola, Florida, Sedriques Dumas was taken into custody in the year 2022. He was accused of hitting a woman during a quarrel that took place on the street.

On March 30, 2024, “The Reaper” is scheduled to compete against Nursultan Ruziboev in a middleweight bout when the UFC Atlantic City event takes place. In spite of this, many people are of the opinion that the criminal charges that Sedriques Dumas is facing as a result of his most recent arrest could potentially prevent him from participating in the event.

There has been no information provided by either Dumas or the UFC regarding whether or not he will be removed off the fight card. In any case, fans may anticipate the revelation of new details in the near future.
