“My friends think my life could be in danger”
UFC featherweight Bryce Mitchell has revealed his life could be in danger for his views on the Ukraine-Russia war. Mitchell recently claimed that he would not go to Ukraine to fight the Russians even if the government asked him to.
Mitchell says the US government is supposed to “tax people to death” and “profit” from the country’s downfall. Because of this, the featherweight contender is unwilling to fight in the ongoing war in Ukraine, a war he claims he doesn’t even believe in.
‘Thug Nasty’ has now revealed his friends warned him his life was potentially in danger for “coming out and telling the truth” about the Biden administration in the United States.
According to Mitchell, the current government will try to drown out all dissenting voices in the country, including his own. During an appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonight, the american fighter said:
“I just don’t want to waste my life fighting some of these battles that I don’t even believe in…These people are trying to destroy our country because they are profiting from the fall of our country…my friends think my life might be in danger because I come here and talk [the] truth… This is the type of suppression and oppression we live in, my brother.”
