Ultra-Rare Exclusive interview with Lee Murray, directly from his Moroccan prison

Ultra-Rare Exclusive interview with Lee Murray, directly from his Moroccan prison

Lee Murray allegedly pulled off the largest bank heist in history, racking in an astronomical $83,000,000. I'm not going to tell you the story of Lee Murray. If you're not familiar with this man, then someone should snatch your MMA fanboy card and ignite it with a cigarette lighter. Try Googling 'Lee Murray' to get up-to-date, and scold yourself after you're done.

Most people are going to believe this interview is too incredible to be real. Trust me, I never thought it would happen until it actually happened. A few weeks ago, someone saw our 'Free Lee Murray' shirt and decided to contact us through 'WorldOverEasy.com'. That same person told me that he could get us in contact with Lee and he would be eager to do an interview. Guffaw isn't even the word. I didn't even respond, until that same person contacted us a few days later with proof that he was in contact with Lee Murray. Still skeptical, I drummed up a lengthy list of questions and submitted them for Lee Murray to answer. I never thought I would get them back, days passed, and then the same person contacted me to inform me that it would just be better that I interview Lee Murray directly from his Moroccan prison cell. The person went on to tell me that Lee Murray (by some incredible and unknown means) is in possession of a cellphone and that he couldn't answer the phone, but he could text back. Still stunned as to how the guy could smuggle a cellphone into a Moroccan prison, I sought some proof to make sure I wasn't part of some elaborate troll job. The proof arrived, and needless to say, it was legit.

I conducted the entire interview via text on January 20th at 3:03pm PST, and six hours later, the interview ended.

Everything below is directly from a Moroccan prison, from the hands of Lee Murray. I've only corrected small typos, added punctuation and blacked-out the name of the person that put us in contact. This is an highly improbable and very expensive interview (midway, I called my phone provider to switch to an 'international package' in order to save money on each text). Big thanks to Nathan Fox for the illustration, originally commissioned by ESPN magazine. You can check his site out here.

Update: For everyone that doubts this interview, I just received a text from Lee Murray (yes, from a Moroccan prison) and he wanted me to publish his address on this interview. So here it is:

Lee Brahim Lamrani-Murray
Ecrou 46908
Prison Locale de Sale
Sale, Morocco

 

Hey Lee, It's Zeus from MiddleEasy.com. Let me know if you get this. Zeus
You can send me an SMS on this number - Thanks, Lee.Lee Murray

 

Hey Lee, let me know if you get this messageZeus
Yeah, no probs I got it!!Lee Murray

 

Wow, very nice. Did you see the questions we prepared that we gave to [omitted]for the interview? If not, I can type out each one here.Zeus
He started to read a few of the questions out to me over the phone but I stopped him and told him it would be easier if you just sent them to me direct. I will answers all questions regarding my fighting career, regarding other events, I can't answer at this present time which I think [omitted] explained.Lee Murray

 

Alright, sounds good. I'm going to start the interview. I know it's 11:30pm over there so if you start getting sleepy, let me know and we'll continue it tomorrow. Feel free to take as long as you want to answer each question. Zeus
No prob, I'm up usually till 2am, it's like a f***** cattle market in here, people start going asleep around 2am so no probs, fire away.Lee Murray

 

I guess the first thing I want to ask is how is this exchange of communication even possible in a Moroccan prison? How did you get a phone in there? Zeus
I would prefer you leave that question out.Lee Murray

 

Alright, take us through a day in the life of Lee Murray inside a Moroccan prison, from the moment you wake up until you rest your head at night.Zeus
Hahaha...OK. Wake up about 8am,we have our own hob to cook food on so I make some breakfast, usually oats, fruit yogurt and protein shake, then 9:30am the door opens to go out to the yard so I usually do some cardio, interval training with sprints and stuff, train for about a one hour, then go back to the room and have a carb and protein drink, then i heat a big saucepan of water and tip it into a bucket a go into the toilet room to have a shower if that's what u want to call it. I use a pot to scoop the water out the bucket to tip over me, when I finish I have something to eat again, something light. The door closes again at 11am, I sleep a little, then the door opens at 2:30pm, there's a guy here who was a kickboxing champion Zakaria Moussaoui. Me and him do some Thai training, pad work sparring or kettle-bells, then at 5pm the door closes again till the morning. I have something to eat at 6pm, then i pass some time by reading some books or mags, watch some DVDs, UFC, movies. I see a great porno of Tito's wife getting the life f***** out of her by a bunch of dudes. That was pretty fun...not for him i bet :) Then at 10pm I eat again and about 1-2am i sleep. It's not too bad. Not the first three years four months I done by myself in solitary confinement. I didn't see no one. It was a f***** hole with rats & s*** coming out the hole u piss in It's not a prob when you piss, it's a prob when you have to squat over it to take a s***, praying a rat don't jump out and grab your balls :)Lee Murray

 

How comfortable are the facilities there? Zeus
There's 23 people in the room at the moment, that's as full as it gets. The room has beds for 16 people, so the rest are on the floor. Usually there's about 18-19 which ain't too bad when you compare it to some rooms with 50 people in a room, it's like a gaint sardine can :) I've seen some crazy s*** since I've been here. I've been here coming up five years now, and you can see a lot of crazy s*** in that time. Now it's normal for me to see a guy walking around with his mouth sewn up because he refused to eat. Literally sewn up with a needle & thread!!Lee Murray

 

Do you have any special privileges? Zeus
No special s***, it's not like US or UK. If you're good you get special s***. This is Maghreb bro!! What you earn in a day, these guards earn in a month.Lee Murray

 

Are you aware that the director of 'The Wrestler' and 'Requiem for a Dream', Darren Aronofsky, was working on a film about your life? Zeus
I did hear something about that.Lee Murray

 

How do you feel now that Darren Aronofsky has abandoned the project for X-Men, Wolverine: Origins 2? Zeus
What the f*** does an X-Men movie have to do with me? Do I have the leading role in it? Is he waiting for me to get out??Lee Murray

 

He stopped the project because it was rumored that he didn't want to ruin any opportunity for you to get out. Most of the movie would have been about the alleged bank heist. Zeus
I'm confused,which project did he stop the x-men or the movie on me?Lee Murray

 

He placed your movie that he was going to make about your life on hold to work on the X-Men movie. Zeus
I think it might be best that it's on hold at least until I've finished at the courts. Even still, how can a guy make a film based on my life who knows nothing about me? Don't tell me information based on the book 'The Heist'. I heard the author of that book wrote a load of bull****, I didn't even waste my time to read his book. I read the first few pages, signed it and gave it away to some English dude that was in here. Only I have the REAL info of my life. No one else.Lee Murray

 

If you were freed tomorrow and Dana White signed you to the UFC, how many months would it take you to realistically train and get back in shape in order to compete again? Zeus
Six months.

I always kept myself in good shape even when I was isolated by myself. It's easy now I have a sparring partner who has stand-up skills that could hold his own with most fighters in the welterweight and middleweight division in the UFC. I have kettle-bells, dumbbells, skipping ropes, bands, the only thing I'm missing here is the wrestling & BJJ, it wouldn't take me long to get back to the top and besides, I'm more hungry than ever. The first opponent would get a hole punched in his head.Lee Murray

 

Alright, first opponent: Tito Ortiz headlining a card or Anderson Silva in a non-title, undercard fight. Which opponent would satisfy you the most if you win in those two scenarios? Zeus
Anderson, because he has a win over me. He is one up. I have nothing to prove by fighting Tito. I have one up on him, he doesn't have one up on me...but not to say I would fight him too if he wants to dance.Lee Murray

 

How do people treat you in there? Are you known as the 'bank heist guy'? Or the 'fighter' guy? Zeus
Known as both really. Everybody is respectful, especially the guards. They joke about and stuff and treat me like a friend from outside, offer me to eat with them, it's better than being in a UK prison any day.Lee Murray

 

You allegedly masterminded the largest bank heist in the history of planet earth, which essentially means that every history major going through college from now until the end of the world will know of your name and read your story. Do you feel that grants you a sense of immortality?Zeus
I truly believe I'm gonna be out sooner rather than later, and when I'm out, I'm gonna be back better than ever and If Dana gave me the chance to fight in the UFC again, which wouldn't be a problem now because i don't need a visa for certain countries, I would become UFC champion, without a doubt. I would bet dollars against doughnuts that I would be champ, and then I would be immortal. Can you imagine that story? That would be one hell of a story...I believe it's still possible!!Lee Murray

 

In your opinion, who do you think the greatest fighter in MMA currently is?Zeus
Anderson has to be the greatest at the moment, but as great as he is, I still think I have tools to beat him. My biggest tool is that he fears me. I fought him to a decision and the real Lee Murray didn't turn up that night. After the fight, my trainers and friends were saying to me: 'What happened? That wasn't you in there'. I said 'the fire wasn't burning for some reason', but every fighter is entitled to an off night and that was my off night. But when the real Lee Murray turns up, he is a killer and comes to smash and break people's faces, jaws, eye sockets, skulls, cheek bones...my intention is not to submit you, it's to smash your head so hard that I break bones & knock you out cold. Silva fears that in me, I could smell it in the fight. He stood off me & didn't want to engage. He also kept trying to take me down. When does Anderson go for takedowns? I can beat him. There's not many fighters that can beat him, but I'm definitely one of them.Lee Murray

 

Are you aware of the organization called Strikeforce?Zeus
Yeah, I'm aware of Strikeforce. I've watched a few fights from there on DVD. It seems my old mate, Robbie Lawler, is doing pretty good. That's good to see.Lee Murray

 

When do you expect to be released from prison?Zeus
Morocco is the land of unexpected, they could come knock on my door tomorrow and say you're going home. If someone knows the king and puts in a good word for me, like when I'm released, I'm gonna represent Morocco and a great fighter is rotting away and he should be freed, then who knows. Maybe I will be released to fight another day.Lee Murray

 

Are you aware that we made a shirt called 'Free Lee Murray'?Zeus
I heard about the t-shirts and it's nice to know that there's people out there still rooting for me....i will never give up the fight!!Lee Murray

 

How do you want history to remember you?Zeus
I want to get out and get back in the cage and be remembered as the toughest,baddest, scariest motherf***** to ever enter the cage. With what I could become plus my past history, that's one bad ass motherf*****!!Lee Murray

 

Are you aware that the UFC added two extra weight classes? Bantamweight and Featherweight?Zeus
Yeah i heard that, they got the fighters from the WEC. They should make a cruiserweight at 205, light heavyweight at 190, middleweight at 180 then so on. 180 would be perfect for me.Lee Murray

 

Tito Ortiz denies that you knocked him out and claims the fight wasn't legitimate because he was wearing dress shoes. What's your response to this?Zeus
Hahahaha, yeah he was wearing dress shoes and I went out clubbing that night wearing boxing boots. the f****** dumbass!!Lee Murray

 

It's reported that after the alleged bank heist, you claimed citizenship in Morocco and purchased a luxurious penthouse, how much did that cost you? Zeus
I can't answer that one. Sorry. [long pause] I don't need to claim citizenship, I'm Moroccan. I got my citizenship the day I was born as a Moroccan, but unlucky for the dumb English police, they thought I was Turkish, maybe they should of done there homework a bit better then they wouldn't have been so disappointed. Don't believe everything you read!!Lee Murray

 

In 2009, you were freed because Moroccan law doesn't have a formal extradition treaty with the UK. What did you do when you were a free man?Zeus
I was never freed, that's exactly what i mean...bull****.Lee Murray

 

If you're tired, we can continue the interview at another time [It was 3:39 AM in Morocco when this statement was made]. Zeus
Keep going.Lee Murray

 

When you were in prison, it was reported that sometime in 2009, you tried to break out of your cell using tiny saws that were hidden in your food. The story goes that another prisoner broke into your cell, found the saws and informed the prison officials. Is any of that true? - Another story goes that you were caught with a laptop and new clothes, which you were punished for. Is that true?Zeus
New clothes? That's the first time I've heard that new clothes are forbidden. We wear our own clothes in here, I have a big bag of my own clothes, they found a laptop in my room but the other stories, I know nothing about. They put me in the hole for six months for having it.Lee Murray

 

How are you keeping your phone powered? Do you have a charger and is it plugged into the wall?Zeus
I have charger and mains.Lee Murray

 

Can you name who holds the heavyweight, light heavyweight, middleweight, welterweight and lightweight belt in the UFC?Zeus
Cain Velasquez, Shogun, Anderson, GSP, Edgar...am I right?Lee Murray

 

100% right. What's your opinion on Women's MMA?Zeus
That Cris Cyborg is one bad ass. I would prefer to pay to watch her fight than most of the men (grapplers) fighters, maybe UFC should start thinking about putting some women fights on the undercard.Lee Murray

 

Thousands of people probably want me to ask this question, and I would be an idiot if I didn't: How did you do it? From the moment of inception to completion. Run us through it.Zeus
Hahahaha, nice try.Lee Murray

 

What contact do you have to the outside world? Do you get the news? Sports? Zeus
I get updates from my friends and family through my phone. You would probably say UFC is my number one sport, but sorry Dana, it's in fact number two. Number one is Tottenham Hotspur. Me and my family are Spurs mad since the day I was born.Lee Murray

 

What's your view of the afterlife?Zeus
Afterlife?? What are you a f****** monk? :)Lee Murray

 

When we created the shirt, we got a lot of flack from our readers from the shirt, specifically that you allegedly kidnapped a family during the bank heist. Do you regret that part of the heist?Zeus
I have no regrets on any part of my life, the way I lived my life has made me the man I am today I've done a lot of things a lot of other people would regret but I don't think you should regret anything in life, just learn from it instead.Lee Murray

 

Have you heard of a guy called Dan Quinn?Zeus
Dan Quinn, who the f*** is he?Lee Murray

 

In the alleged heist, you were known as 'Stopwatch'. Why that name?Zeus
Let me just give the officer in-charge of the case a call and ask him. How the f*** do I know? I've got a question for you, how come when I take a s*** it's brown?Lee Murray

 

How are you an Robbie Lawler friends? Next week he fights for the Strikeforce middleweight belt. Anything you want me to pass on to him? Zeus
We trained many times together. Wish him the best of luck from me, he is a nice guy, Robbie.Lee Murray

 

If I send you a Free Lee Murray shirt, would you wear it?Zeus
Would i wear it? I would look like a right c*** walking around the prison wearing a 'Free me' t-shirt. I would wear a Free OJ one if you sent that :)Lee Murray

 

There's a Strikeforce Grand-Prix that features Overeem vs. Werdum, Fedor vs. Bigfoot Silva. Arlovski vs. Kharitonov and Josh Barnett vs. Brett Rogers. Who wins the entire thing and why? Zeus
Fedor. His ground and pound will be too much for his opponents. Werdum got lucky last fight, I don't think he could pull that off a second time around.Lee Murray

 

Final question, when you realized that your bank heist was successful and you actually 'got away with it', what was going through your body? Relief? Adrenaline? What was the first thing you purchased with your newly acquired wealth? Zeus
I was a millionaire before that heist, my friend.Lee Murray

Zeus totally ignored your underlying point, which i think is completely valid and of course the circle jerk will follow the leader because it's the cool thing to do.

Does MiddleEasy and Zeus have any ethics or standards at all? Obviously not. They continue to blatantly post RUMORS like theyre a TMZ and Current Affairs bastard child. Now they are perpetuating the glorification of a deplorable criminal, Lee Murray. Free Lee Murray tee-shirts? Come on, that's bullshit.

MiddleEasy (Zeus) continuously glorified another deranged individual, former mma fighter, Viacheslav Datsik.

MiddleEasy can't be taken seriously, not because of it's constant "jokes", but because of it's lack of standards and ethics. Guess that's the pre-requisite of being a journalist/repo rter...or in this case JUST a blogger.

"Perpetuating the glorification of a deplorable criminal, Lee Murray." LOL, nice prose!

You make some serious errors in your post. Middleeasy is largely editorialistic, which entitles them to opinion without engaging with the standards and practices of journalistic ethnics. The only appropriate way to attack the journalistic integrity of Middleeasy is to attack the factuality of the interview, which you could argue a case for. Unfortunately, blanket accusations do not suffice.

Furthermore, you might want to reexamine the use of the word "glorify"; how can one not be highly renowned after committing the greatest bank heist in history? If it was your intention to suggest that it is not moral to give Lee Murray attention, you should more appropriately direct your attention to the super salience example of Jared Loughner and his coverage by all those archetypical journalists.

Okay Mr. Anonymous Coward, how about you log into your actual account instead of hiding your screen name. I feel like I'm the only one who is willing to do so while harshly and rationally criticizing the website and Zeus when necessary.

I would not have an issue with Zeus for covering ANYTHING regarding Lee Murray. The fact that he has created FREE LEE MURRAY tee-shirts is glorifying a criminal who has a blatant disregard for the safety of people and property. If you don't get that than you're delusional.

The interview and Zeus' questions itself give off an obvious infatuation.

All the "Lee Murray is my hero" comments reflects the amount of demented retards in MMA who are souped-up on Gene Hackman nostalgia.

How many fucking criminals is this sport, seemingly infiltrated by retards, going to protect and support because it is deemed as cool by sick, demented and delusional dreamers.

So the dude can only text, but the mysterious guy who provided the contact, READ THE QUESTIONS on the phone to LM?
Also
It's reported that after the alleged bank heist, you claimed citizenship in Morocco and purchased a luxurious penthouse, how much did that cost you? I can't answer that one. Sorry. [long pause] I don't need to claim citizenship, I'm Moroccan. I got my citizenship the day I was born as a Moroccan, but unlucky for the dumb English police, they thought I was Turkish, maybe they should of done there homework a bit better then they wouldn't have been so disappointed. Don't believe everything you read!!

So how can exactly do you make a long pause while texting huh?If LM actually texted "..." or smth like that wouldnt you actually type it in the article the exactly same way he texted??

sorry but smth is not right here.

Ofcourse LM needs some time to type all this stuff, but then Zeus ought to write [long pause] before each answer from LM.
Still doesnt explain why LM was able to talk to the mysterious contact guy on the phone and use the rather inconvenient method of texting for the interview.

Perhaps I didn't explain it correctly on the interview. The person put us in contact.

Th person read the questions to Lee over the phone, and then Lee told the person that it was best that he directly contact me.

So after a couple days, my phone was directly in contact with Lee Murray's, and his phone was directly in contact with mine. No middleperson.

All those texts that he received was sent directly to him, and the ones he wrote were sent directly to me.

I probably didn't explain it properly. I haven't slept yet from the interview.

Lee and I had a system where I would ask him a question, then after he was done typing in his answer, he would place 'End' on the last sentence. This was in order for me not to 'Talk over him' with another text.

Cool, thx Zeus, i understood there was no middleperson, only a MiddleEasy-author-person.
You also cleared the long pause-part for me.
To be clear i dont think u did a fake interview, at least not knowing.
But it still bothers me that the other dude was reading your questions to LM on the phone, while you had to go such a roundabout way.
Even if that guy has actual ties to LM, he still might have punked you.
But dont care about me im just that kind of a doubtful person.
Just ask him about it when he comes out and tell us then.

So Zeus at any point did you mention to Lee or his "contact" that when questioned about your Free Lee Murray T-Shirt, that you said you didn't really mean it & it was purely for novelty purposes & also you seriously should have had someone decent to do the interview, as you stated at the beginning that no part of the heist would be mentioned, yet every time you could you dropped that in there, to the point that Lee got seriously pi**ed off. The last thing Lee needs atm is fakes pretending to be interested in getting him out of prison like the people at ME, but luckily there are people like myself & many others that have set up & had numerous thousands of people add their name to a Real petition to FREE Lee Murray. I mean pull the other one Zeus, the only reason you even did this was glory hunting & for that you should be ashamed, man i knew I should have given up on this site a long time ago !!!

Not sure about that mate, if he is professional journalist then he is not a very good one.

Also what on earth possessed you to ask him how he got the phone...lol.... wtfh were you thinking, like he was going to say "well yeah I got great connects with guard Mustafa he brings me in whatever I want" lol......you had all this time to think about what you were going to ask him and you totally dropped the ball.....well done "Zeus" lol

No your right, he goes that step further & pretends to glorify Lee & interview him from prison (which has pi**ed a lot of people off) & by pretend I mean make a T-Shirt that says Free Lee Murray & then when confronted, this so called skilled journalist backs straight down & says that they were merely for novelty purposes only (which pi**es off the rest of us people that genuinely care about getting Lee out of jail). Also is Zeus incapable of answering for himself or are you on the staff? Or maybe your going for the comment of the year award (another idea of Zeus created I'm certain to try & get more people kissing his azz in comments).

btw Sidecheckkick, lets just say I've had some contact with Lee back in the day and although massively underwhelming the interview is 100% legit, that is Lee speaking with "zeus".

I heard about this interview from a friend and expected more, questions about his rough upbringing, bar fights the stabbing which nearly killed him, his childhood (which is you are a journalist you know about already surely you did your research) not just repetitive questions about a topic he could not even discuss.....you sound like a bobby trying to dig for intel tbh.

And this will sound weird, but a Moraccain Prison doesn't sound like such a bad place to be. He has like 5 healthy meals, gets to be outside for a while, and trains everyday. If there's no butsecs, too? Yea, send me there if I am caught robbing a bank.

I have no regrets on any part of my life, the way I lived my life has made me the man I am today I've done a lot of things a lot of other people would regret but I don't think you should regret anything in life, just learn from it instead.

Does lee know that Zakaria Moussaoui is in there because he is a terrorist who was convicted of plotting to fly a plane into the white house as part of the 9/11 attacks? FREE LEE MURRAY

Wrong Zakaria Moussaoui. The 9/11 guy is in Colorado serving LIFE.

I still can't believe it but this is awsume. Man there is a bunch of haters out there. What gets me is if Lee did do the Heist with out killing or hurting anybody that is insane. People think Scarface was crazy thats how I fill about Lee. I hope Lee gets out and makes a crazy come back in the UFC and beats the sh!t out of Anderson S. because I can't stand that guy. I still think GSP is going to put a end to Anderson run. Lee if you read this some how or some way bro you are a master mind if you did do it and to bad you couldn't have stayed in the UFC instead of prison to become a CHAMP. Good luck in there Lee. Peace out to all you haters. Keep your head Lee and keep up the training.

you guys need to do some research about your boy! lee, was questioned many times for different murder's. including one were a women got shot in the face over a stolen car. - thats for all the murray cock rider's that think he should be freed cause he never killed anyone.proof right there that your hero is a stone cold killer.


hell of a fighter though!

Great interview and I no for a fact that was Lee because I have known him since he was a boy, we used to be neighbors and went to the same school. I got on really well with lee's dad. The words in your interview from Lee are true, thats how lee has always spoke he is a bit of a joker. Nice to hear he is still in good spirits and ever hopeful about his release. All his old mates from way back when we were kids still have his back. Send him our love...you'll be back on top Lee my friend, its just a matter of time before you get back to were you wanna be...be strong mate ok x

Firts off, it is an awsome iterview, goodjob Zeus ! And...What an unexpected and unusual life ! WOW !
I have a question for the os who knew him back in the day. I was reading about the murder of Andrew "Sparks" Wanogho (from a Lewisham gang), and iread that "Sparks" had once burried (or fight ?) Lee "Lightening" Murray; and i was wondering, is it really true ? And when i reach some pictures from Lee Murray, i was really septic because of Lee Murray's status... Excuse my bad english (I'm French)

Yes, Lee was a naughty boy...but remember, the big men who's job it really was double crossed him along with Rusha & Royle and those other mugs. And one of them moved to Australia (went to the same school as Rusha) in 2006 and is living it up big time (and the old bill know it, but he moves in high circles and has bribed the right people)

Hope all is well for you Lee, fuck the haters, your still Legend in my eyes...

LM went from a young boy terrorizing the streets of Woolwich (Buttmarsh /Barnfield / Woolwich Common) to committing the biggest heist man has ever known then ending up in one of the toughest prisons in the world LEAVE IT MATE!

I remember back back in the day when Lee was still out you could always catch his dad in Woolwich Common drunk as fuck but nobody dared say anything lol those were the good old days

Why on earth are ME glorifying a bloke who put the lives of women and children in danger? Zeus, don't get me wrong, I do like a lot of the content on this site, but you're letting your semi-on get in the way of common sense. Grow a pair and brand him as a terrible representation of the sport (which he is).
