Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran and former Cage Rage heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Ian Freeman pleaded guilty yesterday to tax evasion in his native England.

According to a report from BBC News, the 42-year-old Freeman also plead guilty to tax credit fraud as well along with his wife, Angela. The amount of money owed by both totals over $30,000. Freeman reportedly failed to declare his yearly earnings, which partly came from numerous television appearances for UK-based Cage Rage.

Freeman last competed at Cage Rage 26 last May, winning a unanimous decision over journeyman Paul Cahoon to successfully defend his Cage Rage light heavyweight belt. He and his wife are scheduled to be sentenced on March 3.
