Tim Sylvia vs. Cabbage” src=”http://www.fcfighter.com/PICTURES/UFC39/sylvia-cracks-cabbage.jpg” alt=” width=”250″ height=”384″ />
There’s an easier way to make a living than crime, Cabbage.
If you’ve been wondering what UFC-veteran Wesley “Cabbage” Correira has been up to during his break from MMA, then let’s just say it doesn’t exactly sound like he’s been eyeing a comeback. When the MMA community last heard from Correira, who last fought in April of 2008, he was suspended by the CSAC over failing to live up to his contract to fight at the Wargods freak show in February of 2009. Now, the 32 year old Hawaiian has recently pleaded not guilty to numerous charges, including first-degree burglary and second degree theft. If found guilty, Cabbage can face up to ten years in prison.

Correira is accused of burglarizing a Hawaiian Paradise Park home Sept. 1, 2009. According to police, a television and assorted electronic equipment and games valued at $4,200 were taken.
Police arrested the 32-year-old Correira Wednesday afternoon in the Walmart parking lot. He was also charged with an additional second-degree theft charge, for allegedly taking an iPhone from behind the counter of a Makaala Street store April 8, plus failure to appear and two counts of contempt of court.
Seems like Cabbage is using the James Irvin method of bringing as much bad luck upon yourself as possible with those last three charges. Unfortunately, these aren’t the only charges against Cabbage.
Correira was also indicted for auto theft May 5. There have been no court appearances in that case. According to prosecutors, Correira also has court cases pending on terroristic threatening and shoplifting charges. Court records indicate that he’s on probation for a 2009 conviction for abuse of a family/household member.
Terroristic threatening? For real? Well, look on the bright side. At least he isn’t being accused of murdering anybody yet. Keep your chin up and everything will work out fine, Cabbage. Just so long as you don’t try to block punches with it.
