In what feels like a broken record, Badr Hari has once again found himself in trouble with the law due to his notorious temper. After his name resurfaced in the realm of kickboxing due to talks of Badr Hari vs. Rico Verhoeven heating up, Hari couldn't go more than a matter of days before finding himself assaulting yet another member of the public.
According to multiple reports, Badr Hari was at the Sofitel Hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco when he assaulted a waiter. According to reports, Badr requested "vodka" and when it was brought to him he snapped on the waiter, throwing him to the ground and pounding on him only for a hotel patron to attempt to pry Badr off of the waiter and end up in the hospital for his intrusion. The most famous case of Hari's temper was the beating of Koen Everink, which resulted in prison time for Hari, some of which he's still awaiting to serve.
The troubled kickboxer was looking to have a retirement fight this year, most likely against Rico Verhoeven after the recent press blitz. Hilariously enough, right when it looked like the gears were in motion to make the fight (rumors of GLORY looking into a one-off fight with Hari, even), Hari lost his temper and most likely ensured that the fight will never be made.
