WARNING: Disturbing video images. This past Monday, ex-mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Amokrane “Kiane” Sabet was shot dead by police in Bali, Indonesia after fatally stabbing a police officer.

Apparently Sabet, 49, an indigenous Algerian and French national was confronted by the local constabulary and immigration officers regarding his tourist visa which had expired, and that’s when all hell broke loose.

After a brief standoff, the police opened fire killing Sabet in the process.

Via BloodyElbow:

“I am done. Shoot me!”, Sabet can be heard saying moments before his death.

Police reports suggest that Sabet’s character throughout the municipality was one mired in violence and behavioural issues.

“There had been many complaints about him such as eating at restaurants without paying, carrying a knife, and harassing people, but every time we called him in for questioning, he never showed up,” Bali police spokesman Hery Wiyanto told AFP.

“One of our officers tried to approach him and calm him down, but Sabet stabbed him,” said Wiyanto, adding that the officer died from his wounds.

Sabet (1-3 MMA) who contested at heavyweight competed under the banners of UK promotions Ultimate Challenge MMA and Millennium Brawl.

He made his professional debut in 1999, defeating Mike Tomlinson via submission. Sabet last fought in 2011, losing to Tomasz Czerwinski by way of knockout.
