Rouhollah Dadashi (Persian: روح الله داداشی) (January 24, 1982 ) was an Iranian Powerlifter, Bodybuilder and Strongman,[1] competing for Iran in international strongman competitions.[2][3][4][5][6]

He participated five times in Iran's Strongest Man competition, reaching the final round each time, and becoming the champion twice (2009 and 2010).[7] , 11:45 p.m in a fight which started as an argument with another driver and his passengers.[8][9] On 17 July 2011, two of the killers were arrested by the police in the city of Karaj. The third and main murderer was arrested the next day while trying to escape the city.

Thousands of people attended Dadashi's burial ceremony. He was buried in Imamzadeh Mohammad in Karaj on 18 July 2011.[10]

One of the accused, 17-year-old Alireza Molla-Soltani, was publicly hanged to death. The boy claimed that the stabbing was in self-defense, yet the Court persisted with the death sentence.[11]
