MMAScoops.com is reporting that Jon Koppenhaver aka "War Machine" has been arrested for fighting outside of a cage or a ring last night. Koppenhaver had recently been released by Bellator Fighting Championships for some very unprofessional comments towards the new President-elect, Barack Obama. Now it seems that Koppenhaver can add fighting outside of a gay club to the list of reasons why we'll never see Koppenhaver back in the UFC ever again. TMZ reports that security at the Krave nightclub in Las Vegas was escorting Koppenhaver out when he started to attack the security guards who then made a citizen's arrest.
It was announced yesterday by the UFC that they had released Luigi Fioravanti and Rich Clementi following their losses at Ultimate Fight Night 17 this past Saturday. Now three more fighters have been added to that list as heavyweights Eddie Sanchez, Christian Wellisch and Derek Downey have been let go as well according to MMAScoops.com. We could see all of these fighters back in the UFC at some point as the UFC likes to release fighters when they don't have any fights upcoming for their lesser known fighters.
