MMA Business Dispute Gets Violent

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has more than its fair share of beatdowns in the ring. But now prominent MMA manager Jason House is facing a felony charge of battery with substantial bodily harm after allegedly punching his father during a business dispute at a restaurant in Mesquite, Nev.

Jason House, the CEO of Iridium Sports Agency and manager of UFC flyweight champ Brandon Moreno, is accused of punching his father Kevin House multiple times, sending him to the hospital for injuries that, per MMA Junkie, required a 500 mL blood transfusion and 18 stitches and caused concussion-like symptoms.

According to an incident report of the alleged battery, Mesquite police were called to a local hospital on a domestic battery report and interviewed Kevin and his wife, Beth House. The two described a business meeting at the 1880 Grille restaurant with Jason and his wife, Alyssa Sandoval, that allegedly became violent over a decrease in Kevin’s share of the MMA management business. Kevin later told police that Jason switched his percentage when the business moved from California to Nevada.

Jason House, via an Iridium spokesperson, declined comment when contacted by MMA Fighting. In a statement released to MMA Junkie, Iridium legal rep Phillip R. Erwin, said “we categorically reject Kevin’s claim that his 20 percent membership interest in the business has been changed by Jason in any way.”

“Kevin continues to own the 20 percent membership interest in Iridium Sports Agency that Jason, as the founder and sole member of the company, gifted to him in 2011,” Erwin continued. “To the extent Kevin pursues legal action related to his minority interest in Iridium Sports Agency, we look forward to defending those claims in court and proving that Kevin’s treatment has been more than fair under the law.”
