UFC Flyweight Jeff Molina Implicated In James Krause Betting Probe

UFC flyweight Jeff Molina has been implicated as a suspect in the ongoing James Krause betting probe.

According to a report from ESPN's Marc Raimondi, Nevada Deputy Attorney General, Joel Bekker, stated during a Nevada State Athletic Commission meeting on Tuesday that Molina is suspected of having "substantial involvement" in Krause's betting scheme. The NSAC had already temporarily suspended Molina last month for unspecified reasons and extended that suspension on Tuesday, pending the completion of the investigations.

Bekker said evidence has come to light that Molina is suspected of being "involved in a substantial way" with the "gaming scheme currently under ongoing investigation related to [MMA coach] James Krause."

The investigation with Krause stems from suspicious betting activities surrounding a UFC Vegas 64 bout between Darrick Minner, a fighter Krause was cornering, and Shayilan Nuerdanbieke last November. ESPN additionally reported last week, that Krause was working as an agent for offshore booking site, ABCBetting.ag since as far back as 2019.

Molina is one of the top rising flyweight contenders in the UFC currently, going 4-0 in his four promotional appearances. He defeated Zhalgas Zhumagulov via a split-decision back at UFC Vegas 56 last June in his most recent fight.
