Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

The 16 Most Notorious Arrests in MMA History

#10: Charles “Krazy Horse/Kid Khaos” Bennett
Arrested for: Felony aggravated battery

Holy crap this guy loves trouble. If Krazy Horse were a football team, he would be the Cincinnati Bengals. Between 1999 and 2009, Charles Bennett was arrested 14 times on crimes ranging from selling cocaine to burglary to aggravated battery on a pregnant victim to possession of MDMA, not to mention assault and false imprisonment. Last year, Horse outdid himself by attacking his own teammate with a piece of steel following a heated sparring session at FIT NHB. Needless to say, his gym membership was immediately canceled.

#9: Leonard Garcia
Arrested for: Suspicion of drug trafficking, obstruction of justice

We all have friends that do stuff we don’t agree with. There’s the one guy who wears too much cologne, constantly checks himself out at the gym, or mows his lawn too often just to make us look bad. But at least we don’t have any friends in the drug-running business. Leonard Garcia did, however, and his name was dragged into the mix when a major cocaine ring was busted in the Texas panhandle. Fortunately, he had nothing to do with his buddy’s illegal activity; the truth came out, and he was exonerated.

#8: Tito Ortiz
Arrested for: Domestic assault

It was the first sign that Tito and Jenna Jameson’s storybook romance was falling apart at the seams. Ortiz was arrested after an argument with Jameson at their home prompted a 911 call; sheriff’s deputies noticed “visible injuries” on Jameson. Ortiz maintained that he never laid a hand on her, and that the argument began with Ortiz discovering she had relapsed on Oxycontin. (Jenna’s version involved Tito grabbing her and throwing her into a bathtub, injuring her shoulder.) The incident was later downgraded to a “misunderstanding,” and charges were dropped. A year later, Ortiz and Jameson split up for good.

#7: Junie Browning
Arrested for: Three counts of battery on a health care provider

Borwning was rushed to a Las Vegas-area hospital by trainer Shawn Tompkins after “The Lunatik” intentionally overdosed on Klonopin in October 2009. Junie clearly didn’t want to be there; enraged, he wound up pushing a female nurse, striking two male nurses, then shouting to everybody within earshot: “Do you know who I am? I will kill you and rape your family.” The incident prompted the UFC to release the troubled TUF 8 vet. Browning actually competed (and won!) at an MMA Big Show event the very next month, but has gone 0-3 in the cage since then.

#6: Mike Whitehead
Arrested for: Sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, and open and gross lewdness.

Following a barbecue at his house, Whitehead invited two intoxicated female acquaintances to spend the night. After the two went to sleep in Whitehead’s bed, one of the victims awoke to Whitehead having sex with her. After pleading with him to stop for several minutes, Whitehead eventually got up, dressed, and sat on a chair staring at the two women for an unspecified amount of time before leaving. (Creepy!) The second woman also claimed that Whitehead fondled her during the incident, but she didn’t say or do anything for fear of retaliation. When police showed up at Whitehead’s house to arrest him, they also discovered a small marijuana grow operation; charges related to that bonus stupidity were never filed. Whitehead will be tried for the sex crimes in August.

You'll never know for sure, but I am freaking gorgeous

@baconbjj He's with us in spirit...and linked in the first line of the feature. Honestly, those charges turned out to be bullshit so I didn't want to promote the "Blevins is a pedo" narrative anymore.
baconbjj- June 16, 2011 at 10:51 am
How does the Lionheart Blevins get snubbed from this list? Not even given a spot on the honorable mention list. Ouch bro.

It's funny, every time I see War Machine, I always have the thought of pizza'ing when you whould have french fry'd and having a bad time.

That was the first time I saw that Tiawanese cartoon. Fucking... awesome! Definitely transcends language barriers.

Seriously, English people have bad teeth jokes? What year is it?

Just for the record, no, I'm not English.

@ shaky - why is it unattractive people are always rambling on about being less image conscious and shallow?

Gosh darn, this site is fucking fantastic.

I think Joe Son took the phrase "Asian brother can't get no love" a bit too close to heart.

I, for one, support Shaky's psychedelic efforts.

Rather, I applaud them.

Batman had the Joker. Superman had Lex Luther. Dana White has Bob Reilly. Chuck Liddell, Ken Shamrock, and Jenna Jameson all have Tito Ortiz. Humanity has Lee Murray.

This is possibly the stupidest and most incoherent series of analogies ever written.
DangadaDang- June 15, 2011 at 5:27 pm
War Machine may be the most appropriate name for a person ever.
hooligun- June 15, 2011 at 5:23 pm

RSparrow- June 15, 2011 at 3:41 pm

El Guapo- June 15, 2011 at 3:39 pm
^Anybody know what Shaky's talking aboot?
Shaky- June 15, 2011 at 3:22 pm
Also, we have free dental care up until the age of 19 and then it remains subsidised. We don't wrestle because wrestling is just a weird, archaic (though effective) institution and we already have the Royal Family for that (not effective, not even entertaining, though you guys seem to love their wacky antics). Go to England, are the teeth that bad? Really? I guess we don't spend massive amounts on unnatural, unnecessary, cosmetic procedures because our society is less image conscious and shallow (I said less, still exists)
