According to the police, Nye had several business cards with the name “McGregor Enterprise” that promoted his drug business when they stopped him.
A drug dealer who tried to impersonate a famous MMA fighter has been sentenced to 2 years and 9 months behind bars.
Mark Nye, 34, of Yeoman Drive in #Stanwell pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs; driving whilst disqualified and without insurance.
Mark was stopped by officers in Stanwell on 11 February and was detained after trying to discard class A drugs and the two mobile phones he had on him.

Mark gave officers false details upon being stopped, telling officers his name was ‘Connor’. Mark also had several hundred business cards which he used to front his drug dealing with the name ‘Mcgregor Enterprise’ written on the front and ‘Best drops in Surrey’ on the back.
Officers analysed Mark’s phones and found hundreds of messages in relation to his drug dealing activity.
Mark was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on 9 April.
Investigating officer PC Mcgill said: “A search of the address Mark was staying at revealed a large amount of boric acid, a cutting agent which is used by dealers to cut drugs and can have serious health implications for users themselves.
“Officers also found a large cleaver readily accessible by his bed.
“Thanks to the work of our proactive drugs teams, we have taken yet another dealer off our streets and prevented Mark from causing further harm to the victims of his crimes.”
