UFC’s Chase Sherman got roasted for celebrating victory in the company of alleged murderer OJ Simpson

UFC’s Chase Sherman had a big night on Saturday when he defeated Jared Vanderaa.

The two were matched in a clash that was likely to get the loser cut from the UFC. In the end, Sherman rallied and knocked out Vanderaa standing securing the $50,000 bonus.

At the press conference, he told media:
“I thought it was going to be a tailor-made fight for me. I felt like in a lot of ways I was looking at myself. A younger version of myself. Not saying that he’s younger than me, but earlier on in my career,” Sherman stated.

“Just not afraid to engage you in a firefight, a guy that mixes it up well with the kicks, a guy that’s got a hell of a chin. I see a lot of myself in him. Maybe that’s what it was, I was in there battling myself and conquering a few demons, and I needed this victory. Like I told you all this week, I just needed that little spark.”

But what he did after captured even more attention. Sherman took a photograph with convicted criminal OJ Simpson at a night club. To make matters worse – he captioned the snap ‘Killers’.

Of course OJ Simpson was tried for the murder of his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman back in the 90s. Thanks to the savvy of his legal team and his stardom, Simpson was acquitted only to land himself in jail years later for a separate incident.

Sherman was instantly slammed for the picture and the caption and had closed up the comment section for the snap.

Of course, the general public would not be as forgiving or as curtailed.
