Luke Cummo Wanted by Police for Threatening Ex-Wife, Releases New Vlogs While in Hiding [WTF, DUDE]


(Man, even Luke’s selfies are weird. / Photo via Luke’s Instagram.)

Former UFC fighter/current schizophrenic video-blogger Luke Cummo is wanted by the police, reports the New York Post.

Their report claims that Cummo sent threatening emails to his ex-wife, which prompted the police to visit Cummo’s home in Valley Stream, NY.

However, videos on Luke Cummo’s YouTube channel tell a slightly different story, specifically a video he posted yesterday. First of all, he seems to believe that his ex-wife was threatened by his videos rather than any email he sent her. He made this claim on a phone call with a friend, after the New York Post broke the news. (Cummo asked his friend what the headline said, presumably referring to the Post article.) He also referenced the amount of cops that showed up to his house. In this same video, he offered to sell medicinal pot.

On November 4th, Cummo posted a more depressing video. He telephoned a deputy sheriff who informed Cummo that a warrant was out for his arrest and that he missed a court date (judging from his other videos, this wasn’t the first time he missed court). The video took a heart-wrenching turn when Cummo called his father, who tried to talk some sense into his son but to no avail.

Jason Miller and Uriah Hall Reportedly Get Into Brawl After ‘Mayhem’ Launches Racial Slur


(“Some of my best friends are black” defense in 5…4…3…” / Photo via ProElite)

This fucking guy. Jason “Mayhem” Miller has had some problems lately. More accurately, the people he’s allegedly terrorized lately have had some problems. Notably, there are the multiple charges and arrests related to domestic abuse for which Miller is currently out on bond for.

Now, according to Gracie Magazine’s Erik Fontanez, Miller can add racist taunts and casino brawling to his resume. According to the reporter, UFC middleweight Uriah Hall and retired basket-case Miller were both in Commerce, California on Friday night for a BAMMA USA fight card.

After the event, Fontanez tweeted that he saw and heard Miller hurl a racial epithet at Hall. Hall then reportedly went after Miller physically and a fight ensued before being broken up by security of the casino they were in at the time. Below are some of Fontanez’s tweets from late Friday night.

Aleksander Emelianenko Detained by Police After Allegedly Beating a Man at a Moscow Cafe [UPDATED]


(I must bake you.”)

In terms of extra-curricular violence, Aleksander Emelianenko has become the War Machine of Russia. The veteran heavyweight slugger was previously arrested following a bar-fight incident in 2007, and was fired by M-1 Global after he scuffled with flight attendants and passengers on an airplane last year. (“He then broke the nose of an airport employee and started a brawl in the hotel restaurant where a wedding was taking place.” LOL, classic Aleks.)

Emelianenko’s latest legal snafu took place yesterday in Moscow, where the Grim Reaper allegedly beat up a civilian in public. Ria Novosti has the details:

Russian police have detained mixed martial arts star Alexander Emelianenko on suspicion of beating up a man in a Moscow cafe, an official said Thursday.

The victim was hospitalized with serious injuries, police said, after a dispute Wednesday in a cafe in southeastern Moscow. A hunt was launched for the 31-year-old fighter, who was subsequently taken in for questioning, police said.

Speaking Thursday, Emelianenko’s lawyer denied the allegations. “There was no assault, there was just a conflict that ended in a fight,” he said.

Miguel Torres Arrested for Marijuana Possession


(“Hey Mike, do you ever think that we could all just be, like, figments of some retarded kid’s imagination?” *Pwaaaaahhh* Photo via Getty.)

It seems that former WEC bantamweight kingpin Miguel Torres is the latest fighter to strap on his goofy boots, eat the Devil’s lettuce and store it in his Prince Albert in the left-handed can. Those are euphemisms for marijuana, which the UFC and WSOF veteran didn’t test positive for during a pre or post-fight exam but rather was allegedly caught with in his home state of Indiana over the weekend. Sherdog reports:

Former World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight champion and UFC veteran Miguel Torreswas arrested in his home state of Indiana this past weekend for alleged possession of marijuana.

Torres’ mugshot was recently posted on the Facebook page of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department as part of the Marshall County Jail bookings from Aug. 24 to Aug. 25. Torres’ exact time of arrest was not revealed in the report. However, it was indicated that the fighter posted a $1,500 bond.

The thirty two year-old is perhaps the most accomplished bantamweight in MMA history but has unfortunately lost three out of his last four bouts. After the UFC absorbed the WEC, Torres fought in the organization, compiling a record of 2-2 before being released in 2012. Torres’ last fight was a November 2012 decision loss to Marlon Moraes in the World Series of Fighting’s first event.

We’ll keep you posted on updates in this case.

“Mayhem” Update: Details Reveal Domestic Violence Charge the Result of a Text Message Argument

At this point, I’m as sick of writing about former UFC/Strikeforce/DREAM/Bully Beatdown star Jason “Mayhem” Miller as you are of reading about him. “He doesn’t fight anymore, so why are we still talking about him?! RABBLE! RABBLE!!” some of you have angrily typed, and to some extent I agree with you. But the fact remains that Miller is a twelve year MMA veteran, an oft entertaining, oft frustrating, but always intriguing figure who has given his heart and soul to the sport we love. Unfortunately, it appears that Miller’s mind was lost somewhere along the way as well.

The nude church break in. The “assault” on his sister. Lucky Patrick and his Twitter implosion. Clearly, Miller crossed the line between flamboyant martial artist and cartoon character who occasionally fights some time ago, and it appears that there is no turning back for him. It’s a realization that makes the news of his most recent domestic assault charge all the more infuriating. Miller’s coaching stint on TUF 14 proved that he is, or perhaps was, a mostly harmless manchild capable of intelligent thought and human decency (unlike say War Machine). His recent actions, however, have argued quite the contrary.

MMAMania, in accordance with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, was able to secure more solid details stemming from Miller’s recent arrest earlier today. The full police report can be found here, but we’ve compiled the bulk of it after the jump. It is abhorrent to say the least.

So I Guess We Should Talk About the Whole Lloyd Irvin Rape Thing?

Ugh. We here at CagePotato have been debating for days now whether or not we should cover the recent, horrific story involving two Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts School students, which has in turn brought to light the former and similarly shocking allegations aimed at Irvin himself. On one hand, we like to keep things light and humorous around here, and would prefer to wait until all of the evidence has surfaced. On the other hand, sweeping a story as heinous as this under the rug would be a cop out even by our standards. At the end of the day, we are supposed to report on all things MMA, no matter how positive or negative a light they shine on the sport, so here we go.

You might have heard that recently, two well known students of the Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts School – Matthew Maldonado and Nicholas Schultz — were accused of raping a female student of the gym on New Year’s Eve. Apparently, Shultz and Maldonado ran into the victim at a club in Washington D.C. and offered to drive her home, as she was too drunk to drive. What follows are the sickening details regarding what actually happened:

But the men took her to the St. Matthew’s Center parking garage instead, police explained, where surveillance cameras captured Maldanado raping the woman and Shultz joining.

After Maldanado left, police said, the tape shows Schultz raping her repeatedly. She told police he said at one point, “I am sorry. I am a sick bastard.”

Detectives said the woman claimed she had been raped, but it wasn’t until they saw the tape, that the extent of the allegations emerged.

They wrote of the alleged attack “She fell backwards…striking her head against the wall…later struck her head again…and noted she collapsed to the ground…several times…he head again hitting the ground.”

And if that bit of info didn’t have you closing your eyes, covering your ears, and screaming “NO! NO! NO!” while rocking back in forth in the nearest corner, just wait until you see the story these allegations have unearthed involving Lloyd Irvin himself.

And Now He’s Fired: Paul Daley Released From Bellator Roster Following Bar Fight Assault Charge [UPDATED]


(And to think, if only Big Dan was at Paul’s side, this whole situation might have been avoided.) 

Good morning, Potato Nation. How was your Christmas? I see that at least a few of you spent it here, arguing about racism, or incomprehensibly ranting about women’s rights, and we thank you for the repeated page views. But if you think you were the only ones whose stockings were stuffed with a bit of vitriol this holiday season, think again, because UFC castaway and all around good guy Paul “Semtex” Daley apparently spent his beating the Christmas spirit out of some local bar patrons.

Sound familiar? According to ESPN’s Josh Gross, Daley has not only been arrested on assault charges stemming from a recent bar fight in his native London, but has been barred from entering the United States until the situation is resolved. This of course means that he will not be participating in Bellator’s upcoming welterweight tournament, although his original opponent, War Machine, had already suffered a leg injury that forced him to postpone their scheduled fight 4 to 6 months. We would say that this is a rather unfortunate turn of events for Bellator, but shit happens when you stack your roster with ex-cons and guys who were thrown out of the UFC for being hotheaded sore losers.

Daley — who could face up to two years in prison if convicted — has yet to make an official statement on the issue, but simply posted the following on the UG:

Rumours. However it seems my next fight will not be for Bellator.

And indeed, Daley has already been booked in the headlining matchup of Cage Contender 16 in Dublin, Ireland on February 23rd. An opponent has yet to be named.

BREAKING: Jeremy Stephens Arrested, Bout With Yves Edwards Still On


(WHY THE FUCK ARE THERE NO REESE’S PIECES?!!)

Well, at least it wasn’t an injury that nearly cost us another fight this time.

Just a few hours ago, MMAJunkie learned that lightweight slugger Jeremy Stephens had been arrested in Minneapolis on an outstanding felony charge and was being held without bail by the Hennepin County Police Department. Although there are no details available as to the specific charges, apparently Stephens was being sought after for an outstanding warrant in another state which was also not named.

But before everyone starts having a panic attack over the fact that two fights from tonight’s card have now suffered last minute cancellations, rest assured that according to both Dana White and Ariel Helwani, Stephens will in fact be fighting against Yves Edwards tonight.

UFC Flyweight Ian McCall Released From Jail


(Seems like a lot of prison tattoos for just 16 days. Impressive.)

UFC flyweight contender Ian McCall was released from jail Thursday, after a 16-day stay resulting from an August 14th arrest for driving on a suspended license and not completing the terms of a previous arrest in 2008. MMA Fighting’s Mike Chiappetta filed his report yesterday and McCall also tweeted in celebration after his release.

“Free at last free at last … time to get back to work,” the Creepy one tweeted Thursday. According to Chiappetta, McCall now faces a year of probation and a $300 fine.

It’s somewhat upsetting to think that McCall served actual jail time for non-violent offenses and citations, while other celebrities get off with none after bludgeoning women. That’s neither here nor there, we suppose, but in any case McCall can get back to his family and MMA career now that he’s been reformed.

In his last fight, McCall lost a decision to Demetrious Johnson June 8th and with it the right to fight for the inaugural UFC flyweight championship.

Society Is Imploding: Three Delaware Daycare Workers Arrested for Inciting Toddler Fight Club


(I met three women with these blank, emotionless faces and…the blackest eyes. The devil’s eyes. Props to our buddies at FilmDrunk for the find.)

It’s pretty common knowledge that most of the writers here at CP have a particularly dark sense of humor. We talk about death around the water cooler with the casual, nonchalant attitude that coworkers in normal society exude when discussing TPS reports or last night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory. Our hearts are basically filled with obsidian, which we write off as a coping mechanism to deal the disintegrating society in which we live.

But apparently we don’t even hold a candle to the ladies running the Hands of Our Future Daycare in Dover, Delaware, who were recently arrested for staging, then recording, a fight between two three-year old children who had been dropped off at the daycare center earlier that morning.

Sound familiar?

Full story after the jump.
