Alexis Vila Wiki Update Wiki

Vila is a Cuban fighter, and two-time World Champion and 1996 Olympic bronze medallist in wrestling. Vila was once part of Cuba's dominant freestyle wrestling team but he defected to the U.S. in 1997, leaving behind his family and country, and began coaching at Michigan State where he worked with future UFC fighters Rashad Evans and Gray Maynard. Then, he got into a car accident that changed his life.

 

Just three years after September 11, Vila crashed his car into a terminal at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. No one was hurt, but authorities thought he was attempting a terrorist act and charged him with airport violence. He could have gone to prison for 20 years. Vila plead down for a three-year jail sentence.
