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

Kimo Leopoldo Arrested for Methamphetamine Possession

2009 is turning out to be a blockbuster year for MMA fighters fooling around and falling in jail. First we had Josh Neer arrested for hit-and-run/DUI. Then Jeff Monson was thrown in the pokey for grandfather clock abuse. Then War Machine got himself placed under citizen’s arrest at the gay club where he works. (Man, that gets funnier every time we write it.) And now it’s Kimo Leopoldo, the UFC old-timer and dark-horse candidate for CSAC executive officer. If you guessed "drug-related," congratulations, you are smarter than a fifth grader. TMZ, as usual, breaks it:

He’s kicked the crap out of all sorts of UFC fighters, but now Kimo Leopoldo is battling a serious drug charge.
TMZ has learned the famously tatted MMA badboy was arrested by Tustin police Monday afternoon after they spotted the 6’3", 235 lb fighter wearing a Long Beach Police Dept. jumpsuit, complete with patches and a cloth badge — a badge only cops are allowed to wear. The officers — the real officers — then searched Kimo’s ride, where they claim to have found "a small amount of what is believed to be meth."
Kimo, who famously lost to Royce Gracie in UFC 3, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and is still in police custody. Cops say there will also be an investigation into where the 41-year-old got his hands on the LBPD gear.

Well, clearly the police uniform was part of an "Officer Friendly"-style youth mentoring effort, and Kimo simply wasn’t aware that impersonating an officer is against the law, and the small amount of methamphetamine was a visual aid to show the kids what they absolutely should not be smoking or injecting, and the whole thing is nothing more than a set-up by corrupt ex-CSAC boss Armando Garcia. (I mean, what else would Leopoldo be doing with the LBPD jumpsuit? Carrying out false arrests on Long Beach drug pushers so he could confiscate their stashes for his own personal use? Ha ha, be serious now.)

Anyway, we hope this is all cleared up soon because a drug conviction could seriously affect Kimo’s high school speaking tour. Though we’d definitely still back him for executive officer of the California State Athletic Commission. After all, who do you want in charge of testing and punishing fighters for abuse of illegal substances? Some pencil-pushing namby-pamby who’s never used steroids or bought crystal meth in his life? Or an unstable drug addict with "Jesus" tattooed on his stomach who actually knows what the hell he’s talking about?

I always thought it was Jesus our Lord and Savior tatooed on his stomach not his meth dealer.

It's not illegal to dress up as a cop. Impersonating an officer charges only count when you try to impose law enforcement on others under disguise as a peace officer. Otherwise every slut and skank would get locked up on halloween. The meth, however, is illegal any time a trailer home is not within 20 yards.

Kimo: "I sold my ridiculously large cross I carried to the octagon to Joe Son for a bag of tweek and now this happens."

Well, if you're dumb enough to believe in Jesus Fucking Christ, that means you're probably dumb as fuck.

what is it with all these jesus freaks (behaving like douchebags) in MMA? is it the multiple, protracted head injuries that make the fighters particularly susceptible to ridiculous bronze-age mythologies? what else could explain it?
Anonymoose- February 17, 2009 at 1:15 pm
what a f***ing tool. get another jesus tattoo, you stupid douchebag.

Kimo just needed to add more research for his pursuit of the CSAC athletic commission job. Not only can he tell the ill effects of steroids....he can now show how professional he looks in uniform.

And, now from experience he can tell youngsters the effects of smoking battery acid and starter fluid and whatever other carcinogens(in meth manufacturing) needed to turn you from average healthy looking citizen to HIV, crackhead, disease infected near death corpse in no time at all

I think you'll see Kimo getting chased on "Dog: The Bounty Hunter" next.

Say what you will about War and Monson, at least they had the sense not to be wearing a fake police uniform while breaking the law. Nothing says "HEY OFFICER, I'M REALLY FUCKING SUSPICIOUS" like one of those...

Shouldn't it be suspicion of drug possession? They think it's meth, it could be baby laxitive for all we know for sure. If we're reporting it as a sure thing, haven't the terrorists won?

And even though I think he's completely insane, I'd still back Kimo for CSAC director over Garcia or Douglas, unless Douglas drops the charade against Antonio Silva and his support staff.

A little investigative research shall reveal they've simply foiled an elaborate plot to bust Joe "Balls of Steel" Son out of the poke.
