Recently, a Swedish woman was found convicted of harassing UFC veteran Rostem Akman for a number of years.
The unidentified woman reportedly first encountered Akman in 2019 when she began her boxing training, according to the Swedish MMA website Kimura. Shortly after, the woman started accusing the fighter of bothering her sexually and contacting his family members and several martial arts gyms.
The court’s findings also describe how the lady sent Akman a number of disrespectful and troubling messages. Some of them contained images of weapons and bodily harm threats.
After three complaints to the police from Akman about the woman, the harassment stopped in January 2022.
The woman was found guilty of slander, harassment, and threat after the case went to trial. The woman must pay Akman 20,000 Swedish Krona (SEK) as a fine and 10,000 SEK as damages.
Following a successful amateur career in which he went 14-2 over a period of three years, Akman made his professional MMA debut in 2017.
Just a few months after losing to Sergey Khandozhko by unanimous decision, Akman lost to Jake Matthews by decision at UFC 243 in Australia. The Swedish fighter’s UFC career came to an end with his 0-2 record. He later competed once for Cage Warriors before being defeated in the second round by current UFC welterweight Ian Machado Garry.
Akman last competed in April of this year in Graz, Austria, at Cage Fight Series 10. The 30-year-old suffered his fourth consecutive defeat after being struck down by Andreeas Blinder of Romania.
