Former UFC fighter Kimo Leopoldo arrested on drug charges

Published reports state that former UFC fighter Kimo Leopoldo was arrested on possession of a controlled substance in Long Beach, California on Monday afternoon.

TMZ was the first to report on the arrest earlier this afternoon.

Kimo, known just as much for his wide array of tattoos in addition to his fighting prowess, was spotted by police wearing a Long Beach Police Department uniform with right down to the patches and cloth badge. Officers searched Kimo’s vehicle where they found a small amount of what they believe to be meth.

The long-time veteran of the sport who once lost to UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie at UFC 3 was charged with possession of a controlled substance and remains in police custody. Police officials also will begin a full investigation as to how Leopoldo was able to obtain a police issue uniform.

    Isn’t this the same guy who used to preach about Jesus, and carry a cross to the Octagon? Saw this day coming years ago…….

    You think believers in God don’t do drugs? Boy are you sheltered. Just so you know, when you are a believer you still aren’t perfect.

    Not the end of the wold for Kimo. I hate to see this serious chink in his armor, but doing a drug doesn’t make you a bad person. It doesn’t even make you a bad christian. It makes you HUMAN. Being a proud christian fighter, getting caught with an illegal substance only gives the ‘better than thou’ of our society more ammo to take their shots.


    I want more news about the fighters that actually have their sh*t together and are doing good for their community, as well as their sport of choice. I want the world to see this sport in a positive light.

    No one is taking shots at Kimo. I realize hippocrites, errr, believers, can back slide by doing some drugs, impersonating cops, etc. and ask for forgiveness and poof… everything is swell (just joking – don’t get mad christians).
    I don’t have a problem with the drugs, because everyone goes through a low time in their life and drugs just happen to be the way some people cope. It is the impersonating a police officer that should be the bigger issue. He has a history of drug use. Kimo has a lot of demons to deal with. Hopefully, he will get his life back on track. MMA does need anymore black eyes (no pun intended) right now.
