Former IFL fighter faces rape charges

This story has been out there for a couple of days, but I somehow missed it.

According to, former NCAA All-American wrestler and ex-IFL heavyweight fighter Devin Cole was charged with first-degree rape, two counts of first-degree sodomy and two counts of first-degree sexual penetration in Medford, Oregon over the weekend.

Cole competed for Portland Wolfpack and the Seattle Tigersharks in the IFL and compiled a 2-4 record. His most recent fight took place in May in Lemoore, Calif. on a card for the Palace Fighting Championships. Cole defeated Vince Lucero via TKO.

    That is just teribble. People who do things like that ought to be shot.

  • Brian says:

    That’s right Davey D. Guilty until proven otherwise HELL YEAH.

  • JOe K. says:

    Wanderlei Silva was charged with rape for that rape choke he put on Jardine at UFC 84.

  • Ken says:

    This is the USA. Innocent until proven guilty.

  • “First degree sexual penetration?” They’re just making up laws now aren’t they? If that’s a real law I think most of us would be in jail.

    Huckaby, that is better known as the old “just the tip” ploy.

  • Endocet says:

    wow sodomy? are you serious? 2 counts, he must have done something bad to her other hole.

  • Davey D says:

    #3 Brian, there is no need to be a smart ass about it. Therefore, I should just assume you’re down with those kinds of thing’s since that’s all you have to say, hmmm?

    Devin is innocent until proven guilty nonetheless but, those are some pretty serious charges to stand up to. I said people who do those things ought to be shot. I never said he was guilty. He will have his day in court and his fate will be decided by his peer’s. That’s fair, no?

    #5 This is the internet… Innocent until I see pictures of it.

  • fightfan- support Devin says:

    Devin has been “accused” of these charges, not “convicted”. I can only hope that someday, someone close to you is not “accused” of some heinous crime and you have to go through what this family is going through. Maybe you won’t be so quick to be the judge and jury when it’s your mom, dad, brother, sister or friend………
