UFC is banning fighters trained by a suspended coach during an investigation into suspicious betting regarding one of his fighters, AP reports.

UFC said Friday that those coached by James Krause will not be permitted to compete in events during the probe. Krause was suspended Nov. 18 by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

UFC said it was “cooperating with multiple ongoing government investigations” regarding Darrick Minner, who is coached by Krause.

Minner lost to Shayilan Nuerdanbieke by technical knockout at 1:07 of the first round in a UFC fight Nov. 5 in Las Vegas. UFC said in a statement that it was “informed by sources that suspicious betting patterns had been observed on the fight.
