Two South Florida mayors were to fight next month in an MMA bout for charity, but it’s off. Michael Pizzi was arrested Tuesday on bribery charges, reports Miami Herald. Along with another mayor, Pizzi was subject of an FBI investigation.
The other side of the fight was Carlos Hernandez, who called the recent events “a very unfortunate event for not only Miami Lakes and Sweetwater, but all of South Florida.”
They were to have met at an event called “MMA Mayhem at Milander: Mayor vs. Mayor.” The card is scheduled for September 6 from Hialeah’s Milander Auditorium.
