Former UFC lightweight Abel Trujillo has reportedly been charged with felony sexual exploitation of a child and felony obscenity.

The news was first reported by TSN on Wednesday, adding that Trujillo is currently being held in in Douglas County in Castle Rock, Colorado with a bond set at $10,000. He was originally arrested on May 24 in Broward County, Florida after an arrest warrant was put out for him in Colorado. He was later extradited to Douglas County in mid-June.

A preliminary court hearing is set for the 35-year-old Thursday at the Douglas County Courthouse. Details surrounding the case are not available to the public due to the nature of the charges.

“In Colorado, sexual exploitation of a child is defined as “possessing, producing or distributing sexually explicit material (pornography) involving a child under 18” and this particular charge, as outlined in Colorado court documents obtained by TSN, specifies someone who “possesses or controls any sexually exploitative material for any purpose.

Trujillo’s particular obscenity charge is defined as “a person commits wholesale promotion of obscenity to a minor if, knowing its content and character, such person wholesale promotes to a minor or possesses with intent to wholesale promote to a minor any obscene material.”

If convicted, Trujillo, who has a history of legal issues, could face a prison sentence of 12 to 18 months and a fine of $1,000 to $100,000 for each charge.

Trujillo last competed in the UFC in December 2017, losing to John Makdessi via unanimous decision. He was slated to fight Will Brooks at Battlefield FC 2 later this month, but was later replaced by Gleison Tibau.

Dana White Reveals Comeback Plan For Henry Cejudo

UFC president Dana White wants two-weight champion Henry Cejudo to defend his flyweight title against Joseph Benavidez next.

UFC president Dana White wants two-weight champion Henry Cejudo to defend his flyweight title against Joseph Benavidez next.

Cejudo became the holder of two titles when he defeated Marlon Moraes to become the bantamweight champion last month. He would call out a number of names at bantamweight afterwards such as Dominick Cruz, Cody Garbrandt and Urijah Faber. However, it was all redundant as “The Messenger” will be out for the rest of the year after undergoing surgery.

But given the uncertainty surrounding the flyweight division, many expect him to defend the 135-pound strap next regardless. Will it be against Faber, who recently returned from retirement with a big win over Ricky Simon?

“He [Faber] looked good, man,” White told TMZ. “Not just who he beat, but how he beat him and how he did it. He looked incredible in his hometown that night. I don’t know…Cejudo’s hurt. You don’t know what fights you can make until everyone’s healthy and back. So we’ll see what happens with Cejudo when he gets back.

“He [Faber] proved to me he wasn’t too old because he beat a real guy in devastating fashion. He’s obviously not too old. …We’ll see what happens.”

While White is not certain about Faber getting the next shot, he did seem certain about another challenger in Benavidez. The 34-year-old cemented his place as the No. 1 contender at 125-pounds following his recent win over Jussier Formiga.

Holding a win over Cejudo as well, White believes that should be the next fight to make:

“You’d have to look at Joe [Benavidez]. Next he [Cejudo] should defend that title,” White told TMZ. “So he would go to 125, defend that title, then we would decide who he would fight next. As long as Cejudo is willing to defend both titles, I think he is a guy who can carry both divisions.”

Who do you want to see Cejudo face upon his return?

American Top Team Owner Has Nothing Bad To Say About Robbie Lawler

American Top Team (ATT) owner Dan Lambert has nothing bad to say about former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler.

American Top Team (ATT) owner Dan Lambert has nothing bad to say about former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler.

Lawler became ATT’s first-ever champion when he defeated Johny Hendricks to become the new 170-pound king back in 2014. He would defend the belt two times before eventually losing it to Tyron Woodley in 2016. Woodley also trained at ATT at the time, and following the loss, Lawler would depart the gym for Hard Knocks 365.

Slated to fight Colby Covington in the UFC Newark headliner next, “Chaos” started stirring things up by claiming “Ruthless” left because ATT put up a photo of Woodley winning the title in the gym. For his part, Lawler has not directly responded to those claims.

Neither has Lambert, who didn’t comment much on the reasons behind Lawler leaving. He didn’t have any negative things to say either:

“Well from my standpoint, fighters come and fighters go,” Lambert told MMA Junkie Radio. “We focus on the fighters that are at the gym, not fighters who have left. I don’t have anything bad to say about Robbie Lawler.

Even if I did, he’d be the last person I’d say something bad about, I mean look at the guy. Look at the guy and look at his status in the sport.”

Lawler has also trained with Covington before, and despite the latter’s claims and brash personality in general, the former champion had good things to say about him. That is one of the reasons why Lambert is focused solely on Covington and not any other potential drama:

“You’re going to try and get into a PR battle with that guy?” Lambert added. “You’re going to lose that one every time but you know, we focus on people that are at the gym. Try to make them better, get them to fight. Colby is at our gym, Robbie is not so we’re focusing on Colby.”

What do you make of Lambert’s comments?
