Ian Heinisch apparently served a jail term before becoming a professional UFC fighter.
At UFC 258 Ian Heinisch went up against the UFC veteran Kelvin Gastelum. The fight could not reap him the ideal result, however, after a valiant effort took the fight to the distance, where he lost on the judges’ scorecard.
Coming into the fight Heinisch was an underdog, which he could not turn in the Octagon, but, on another notion, the fighter has a prior experience of dealing with the odds.
Not many know that the fighter has served a little prison term. Reportedly in his initial fight days, Heinisch was busted for smuggling some illegal substance.
Ian Heinisch was a State Champ wrestler who got busted selling ecstasy, fled to Europe, was dealing coke hidden in balloons up his ass, went to prison in Greece, was captain of the Prison kickboxing team, got sent to Rikers and just picked up a huge win. Congrats man.
