Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

It Looks Like Mike Whitehead Will Call Prison Home for the Next 1 to 4 Years

(Exhibit A for the defense: Whitehead can’t take a punch.)

In a surprising twist in the Mike Whitehead sexual assault case, the former The Ultimate Fighter 2 contestant was sentenced to between one and four years in Nevada State Prison today in Las Vegas. This according to the Associated Press.

Whitehead, who now lives in Tucson, Arizona and was scheduled to fight on Resurrection Fighting Alliance’s March 30 card in Nebraska, burst into tears after the sentence was read in Clark County court. He was immediately handcuffed and taken into custody. A report by the Associated Press states that “Iron” Mike (ironic, huh?) was charged with “attempted sexual assault,” which seems a bit off, considering he was full on having intercourse with a passed out chick while fondling her sleeping friend at his home when the victim woke up and told him to stop back in April 2010. In spite of her protest, Whitehead continued having sex with the 32-year-old acquaintance for several moments before climbing off of her and sitting naked on a chair in the corner while he stared at her and her 28-year-old girlfriend for a couple of hours.

It seemed like he would walk away with probation when it was announced late last year that he had struck a plea bargain with prosecutors to plead “no contest” to all charges against him to avoid the case going to trial, but it looks like the judge agreed with pretty much everyone that Whitehead should do the time for his vile crime.

Final sentencing is expected in the coming weeks, but a typical sentence for rape in Nevada where bodily harm doesn’t occur is life in prison with the possibility of parole after ten years. Four years is 40% of the normal penalty, so Whitehead should count himself lucky.

In addition to his stay in the big house, Whitehead will be added to the National Sex Offender Registry and was ordered to pay the victim $2,400 in restitution.

No word on whether or not an appeal will be launched, but it’s likely, considering that’s what pretty much every guilty person does.

Who wrote this, Whitehead was charged with "“attempted sexual assault,”, not rape.

You, yourslef said Whitehead avoided the jury trial. Bad writer with emotional connections to vile crimes - please tell us who all these people are that the judge agreed with, it wasn't the jury.
Why cloud the readers over the conviction with rants over rape?
Is this the female known as Drano who wrote this bullshit?

I don't think Whitehead denied having sex with her, or even that it was consensual. I think he just thought he could say "My bad!" and that would take care of things. Also, remember, there was another chick there, so it wasn't just his word against hers.

He had to pay her 2400 dollars for having sex with her.. so does that make her a prostitute?

There's gonna be pleeeeeenty of waking up while being sexually penetrated and then being creepily stared at for hours at a time in his cell.....or he can pull a Joe Son and kill a Highlander his first day so he doesn't become someone's bitch

If a chick says you raped her it's basically your word against hers and more than likely the courts going to favor the woman. I'm not trying to defend this scumbag, I'm just sayin he never had a chance

@ intercept - well, okay, yeah... he coulda done that. After the sleep sex and groping, though, right? Maybe a little staring?

Well thats him done for a while, the way it was written makes him sound like a leather face of the mma world but he still did the motions all by himself. Id like to remember him as the fighter on the TUF season 2, the quitter and sook that his coach and friend Matt Hughes gave up on when he just stopped and flopped on Rashard Evans. Anyhoo he could still kick my ass sooo hope you train in prison and come back and redeem yourself... the world will be watching.

RwilsonR- January 19, 2012 at 6:36 pm
Well, sure, when you put it like that it sounds creepy. But, really, what was he supposed to do in that situation?

I would imagine she probably laid there in fear for her life not knowing what was going on in his sick perverted mind.

If it wasn't for sleep sex married people would be nuns. And not those dirty Italian ones either.

I heard he's also planning to change his name to Mike Whiteanus in anticipation of his stay in the big house.

Phil Baloni- January 19, 2012 at 4:04 pm
wtf, he climbed off her and sat naked staring at them for hours and they just went back to sleep or what?
GistoftheFist- January 19, 2012 at 4:03 pm
Purpledickmeat, i'd wash your mouth out with soap but I don't want that soap to get aids.
PurpleDickMeat- January 19, 2012 at 3:54 pm
I'm confused.... who was getting fucked and who was getting fondled between karma and xeno? I bet that attention whore xeno was taking it while karma just laid there like a bitch. And why wasn't I invited?! I would have fucked karma square in her cunt!
