WEST PALM BEACH — Two Florida teenagers have been sentenced to ten years in prison for their role in the murder of a professional mixed martial arts fighter nicknamed “The Matzoh Brawler.”
Friends said Aaron Rajman, who wore a yarmulke in his MMA fights, also was dealing drugs and was targeted for the marijuana and cash he kept at home.
On Monday, 18-year-old Summer Church and 20-year-old Jace Swinton each pleaded guilty to reduced charges of second-degree murder. The prosecution continues its case against Roberto Ortiz as the alleged shooter.
The Palm Beach Post reported Church wasn’t at the scene when Rajman was killed during a 2017 home invasion, but police said she was the mastermind. Police said a fight broke out after Ortiz and Swinton entered Rajman’s home and Rajman was fatally shot.
Rajman had a 2-2 record since becoming a professional fighter.
