Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Matt Lindland Being Sued for Allegedly Stealing Six Medical Pot Plants Worth an Estimated $122,880

(Matt will fight the law, but will “The Law” win?)

Matt Lindland was slapped with his second court case against him in the past month last week when plaintiff Gonzalo Aldana Gamboa filed suit in Multnomah County Circuit Court in Oregon Thursday, claiming that the former UFC fighter stole six mature marijuana plants from him. According to the report from, The suit alleges that Lindland agreed last year to allow Gamboa – a prescribed medical marijuana user — grow a small registered crop of plants on a section of his Eagle Creek property.

Gamboa says that he took out a grow permit for the site with the state of Oregon and harvested six mature plants last October. Lindland apparently helped load the plants into a rented U-Haul truck and convinced Gamboa to store them in one of his his sheds to dry. When Gamboa returned a month later to pick up his crop, “The Law” refused him entry to the shed.

He is seeking $122,880 in renumeration for the plants, but the case could get tricky considering that the value of the pot is unknown considering it was not weighed and it was never meant to be sold.

“There is an economic value,” Gamboa’s lawyer William Macke says. “I think it could be argued that that’s what it’s worth. [coming up with a true dollar figure indicative of Gaamboa's losses] may be a little bit of a long shot, legally.”

Dan Henderson filed a lawsuit against Lindland in February, alleging that his former Team Quest teammate has no claim to the TQ brand or name. The suit states that because Lindland  joined the team after it was established by Henderson and Randy Couture. Couture relinquished his rights to the Team Quest brand to Henderson when he left the gym to open up Legends in Los Angeles with Bas Rutten before establishing Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas.

The price of Medical Marijuana has tanked. From a growers stand point, six plants isnt worth doing unless you are growing them for yourself. 80 to 100 plants can fetch you a decent living right now but more and more factory farms owned by pharmaceutical Companies are popping up and given the limited market, the end of the weed bubble is fast approaching.

I think the guy sueing for 100K is just a fishing tactic. He doesnt expect to get that but by aiming high, he's more then likely going to get more then he would have if his loss/claim had been realistic.

Chael Sonnen is still the biggest scumbag at Team Quest.

Haha. Even if this was the best weed ever grown, 6 plants isn't worth a quarter of that amount.

@ the bassmaster

I don't now anyone who has ever payed 50 for an 1/8 here. Also I love when the police try to estimate value. It's not like a dude with 100 or more oz is selling dubs and 1/8's.

That reminds me of a song...

Now if a bitch sucks yo dick for $5 per square inch
and gets $40 including a $5 tip
How big was the dick she just sucked?
If you a n---a with a watch
this iced style with enough rocks
to make the hottest room temperature drop
how long will it take for you to get robbed?
Now if you take a glass of water then add 2 cubes of ice
you should see the cup's water level slightly rise, right?
you need to watch what I'mma show you (watch this)
You need to look closely at what I'mma show you (listen to this right here)
If you remove every living animal out of the sea
then wouldn't the world's ocean water level decrease?
This means the planet wasn't 3-quarters water (that was deep)

Its ni--anometry!

What the fuck does anybody need $122,880 worth of marijuana for as medicine? If the story is true, Lindland is certainly a douche, but imo the damages at most are whatever the victim needs in marijuana until his next crop is ready, which can't possibly be anywhere near that sum.

Matt Lindland appears, in interviews, to be the most boring man in the world. How much of a personality suck do you have to be to make an Olympic medal winning, UFC championship contending, Fedor challenging, Sonnen toadying, fight club stealing, political party embarrassing, marijuana thieving person seem as boring as sex with five condoms on?

at the standard rate of 50 dollars US for 1/8th of an ounce, marijuana would be 400 dollars an ounce. That means this guy was expecting 307 ounces of pot from six plants. the average outdoor pot plant would yield around seven to eight ounces of smokeable "medicine". These six plants, realistically, could only yield about 60 ounces of smokable "medicine", and that is a very generous estimate. This guy is a skeezer, and was deffenitely breaking medical marijuana laws by producing far too much "medicine :P" and, scientifically speaking, is displaying textbook signs of chronic douchebaggery, and may be suffering from the side-effects of what we in the medical world call "acute shit-headedness". I suggest he buy a commercial strength lubricant, lather his neck up real nice, and give his head a firm yank to dis-lodge his head from his ass. Thank you for reading.

well when you consider that each plant is not just capable of one harvest but rather producing a whole strain of plants for the owner from generation to generation I don't doubt that a high value set of plants could go for 122 k. Uhhhh I mean from what my friend with the hispanic accent told me. ummmm PRANK CALL PRANK CALL

I think you meant medicinal, not medical.

You always get ridiculous numbers from cops and local papers. They usually show some fat sheriff holding up three or four, sad ass, male plants. The headline reads, local hero seizes 1.3 million dollars worth of Marijuana.

Don't mess with The Law. Lindland's walkout song should be "I fought The Law and The Law won."

Oops, not for matt lindland, for himself.

Yea. That figure is pretty high. But the cops always do that. They have some crazy math. Always the worst possible rip-off retail value. Oh yea. 50$ a gram.
