It may certainly appear that mixed martial arts fighters are in a league of their own - for better or worse.
Not only do we have top level athletes being caught using steroids at an almost alarming rate - there is also lots of stuff going on elsewhere...
In New Mexico, a fighter apparently looking for trouble got himself into a brawl at a swimming pool, according to krqe.com.
He reportedly ended up critically injured after being knocked out cold with one single punch to the head.
Then you have the former MMA-fighter in Hawaii who recently have been found guilty of murder and sexual assault.
Hawaiinewsnow.com have the full report about this nice fellow, who also have a prior felony conviction and two pending assault cases "under his belt".
And let us not forget "The Noodle", a 35-year-old firefighter from L.A, who' also moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter, according to losangeles.cbslocal.com.
He is being accused of worker's compensation fraud after filing false workers' compensation insurance claims while he was participating in MMA fights.
