The fiancé of WWE Superstar Dana Brooke has reportedly been arrested after allegedly punching a man who had posted about him online.
Ulysses Diaz, aged 40 was arrested after a man accused him of turning up at his home and punching him in the face. It was reported by WPLG Local 10 that the man had been posting about Diaz online.
The Cuban-born boxer Diaz, has a professional record of 12-1-0 last fought in 2019. More recently the middleweight has stepped into the world of bareknuckle fighting, tasting defeat against former UFC fighter Thiago Alves in June.
“Another arrest in Miami-Dade, this one of a professional boxer and MMA fighter. He is 40-year-old Ulysses Diaz de Villegas, and he’s accused of striking a victim in the mouth causing a big laceration. Police say the victim posted about him online, and Diaz de Villegas has showed up to his home and that’s when he hit him. He’s now facing a battery charge and being held on a $5,000 bond.”
Dana Brooke and Diaz who began dating back in late 2019, announced their engagement in July.
Dana Brooke signed with WWE in 2013 after enjoying a career as a professional bodybuilder, where she competed in the famed Arnold Classic on multiple occasions.
Upon signing with WWE, Brooke spent the first part of her wrestling career in NXT, before moving to the main roster in 2016.
Despite spending much of her run as a singles star, Brooke began teaming with Mandy Rose in September 2020. The pair challenged for the Women’s Tag Team Titles that November, but were unsuccessful against Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
The duo competed in Tag Team Turmoil at WrestleMania 37 in a bid to earn another shot at the titles but were ultimately unsuccessful. However, Rose and Brooke eventually became number one contenders once more, defeating Lana and Naomi on the May 31st edition of RAW.
The pair split up as Mandy Rose moved back to NXT, with Brooke not appearing on television for a number of weeks. She was most recently in action on the October 11th edition of Raw in the first round of the Queen’s Crown tournament where she was defeated by Shayna Baszler.
