Fighter Found Dead

Justin Levens, who has fought for the UFC, WEC, IFL, and other promotions, was found dead in his Orange County apartment along with his wife, Sarah McLean-Levens. Authorities believe it was a murder-suicide, in which Levens first shot his wife than took his own life. Every sport has to deal with tragedies like this and MMA will be no different. A lot of guys get into fighting as an escape from tough lives. From what I've heard about Levens over the years, he always faced problems in his life. This is no excuse for his actions, but it should be a lesson for other fighters who have similar backgrounds that the end will not be pretty if you do not get a hold of your life.

Newsday.com gets the Sub-Zero Award for putting a UFC 92 poll below the death notice.


(Looks like someone finally woke up and realized the placement of their UFC 92 poll below a death notice was a bit odd.)
