Report: M-1 and Bellator Vet Raphael Davis Charged With Insurance Fraud

By FCF Staff

Bellator and M-1 veteran Raphael Davis has reportedly been charged with four felony accounts of insurance fraud by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.

According to a report from USA Today, the charges stem from claims the fighter made from December, 2008, through May, 2011 for workers compensation, which the attorney’s office allege were false.

Davis, who is a firefighter, fought seven times during that period and scored wins in organizations like Bellator, M-1 and Called Out MMA.

If convicted, Davis (12-2) could face up to five years in prison.

The light-heavyweight fighter most recently competed in January and stopped Berin Balijagic while fighting for Strength and Honor.

    I think the way to fix this is having a mandatory special license that will require that the person applying for it has a previous license, either Real Estate, Mortgage etc, perhaps with a mandatory surety bond, if at the same time they create laws just like the laws that even send you to jail for working without a license, I bet there will be few people that will take a chance of going to jail, that way everyone who is legally license and knows what he/she is doing, will be accountable for their actions and the customers will be protected. As we all know it is imposible that the few lawyers that are working in this business can handle tha volume and we all know there is more to come. I am in South Florida and this problem is just getting out of hand.
