Remember that hotel room MMA video I put up a few days ago that a lot of you found really sexually confusing? Well it turns out that one of the guys in that might have been up to a whole lot more than a little innocent hotellrumbsbrottning. Check this out:
Swedish police are hunting for robbers who used a stolen helicopter to raid a cash depot in the capital, Stockholm.
The thieves lowered themselves onto the roof before smashing their way in early on Wednesday, police said.
Loud explosions were heard before the men were seen stashing what were believed to be bags full of cash into the helicopter.
A suspicious bag placed at the police heliport prevented officers from using their helicopters to chase the gang.
It is not yet clear how much money was stolen.
So what does this have to do with the video? One of the guys in the video was mixed martial arts fighter Reza ‘Mad Dog’ Madadi, a training partner of David Bielkheden and a blogger on Fightplay.tv. He’s also one of the several people who were arrested over the weekend in connection with the cash depot robbery. So I have to ask: what is it with MMA fighters and daring bank heists? Will Reza one day have a movie about him directed by Darren Aronofsky too?
