Former UFC Fighter Kimo Leopoldo Arrested On Drug Charges




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.”

Leopoldo (10-7-1) started his MMA career at UFC 3, losing by first round armlock to legend Royce Gracie. The 41 year old fighter has not fought since 2006.

Beyond the strange behavior, Leopoldo had recently applied to be an Executive Officer of the California State Athletic Commission.

    It's probably better that you've never seen him fight…trust me. He's big in Japan, and in some leagues over there they put him up against scrubs and he was winning. But Noguiera submitted him, and cro crop ko'ed him in 86 seconds in a a kickboxing match. He's a joke.

    your wrong about him fighting scrubs, he fought some of the best that ever fought and won a few of them with no real mma or fight training, he beat ernesto hoost at least twice and almost killed nog and he seemed to be in great shape for that fight,ryan if you enjoy seeing a real big guy knock guys out or get knocked out go check out his fights some of them are very entertaining he started real late in the sport and only got worse instead of better and at times had no cardio at all making for some of his weaker fights.
