Abdul Razak Alhassan is not guilty. His innocence was proven on Friday. He walked out with a clean slate.


Back in 2018, Abdul was charged with a sexual assault case. Two women accused Abdul Hassan of rape.

Alhassan had been working at the Varsity Tavern in Fort Worth that night as a bouncer.

The two women were allowed into the club after the older of the two – 20 and 22 at the time — gave her his phone number. After they left the club that night, he went over to the younger girl’s home. It was there that Alhassan engaged in what the court deemed was not sexual assault. The case was filed a while after and Alhassan has been in and out of court trying to prove his innocence for almost 2 years.

After both sides and their respective attorneys presented their cases, the jury went to deliberate the entire situation. According to the jury’s decision, Abdul Razak Alhassan was found not guilty. The jury also thought that Alhassan was honest and genuine during the interrogation. And that they thought investigators could have handled the case better. All in all, Alhassan walked out free and clean from the above proceedings and we can expect him back anytime soon.

“This allegation put his UFC career on hold for about two years. They (UFC officials) were waiting to see what was going to happen. I think he was one of the top welterweights in the country. He was an up-and-coming fighter. He’s in shape. He’s been training. I think if he can get another fight, he would feel really good to get an opportunity.” Barnette said.
