The Underground News
 

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship contender Kimo Leopoldo appeared at the Orange County Sheriff’s office in Santa Ana, Calif., late Tuesday afternoon, ending rumors of his death that spread rapidly across the Internet.

“He’s standing here in front of me, talking to some members of the press,” said Jim Amormino, the spokesman for the county sheriff’s coroner’s office, in a phone interview. “He’s alive and well.”

Rumors of Leopoldo’s death first appeared on MMA.tv’s popular forum, “The Underground.” The post reported that Leopoldo died in Costa Rica “of complications from a heart attack.”

The report was quickly picked up by celebrity website TMZ.com, which “confirmed” the death. It later pulled the story without comment. The New York Daily News, Orange County Register, Las Vegas Sun and numerous MMA-specific websites also reported the story.

But an attorney who has represented Leopoldo, who made his mixed martial arts debut at UFC 3, told Yahoo! Sports the 41-year-old “surfaced” early Tuesday afternoon, hours after reports of his death spread like a wildfire across the Internet.

Attorney Victor E. Hobbs of El Toro, Calif., said in a brief telephone interview, “Kimo has surfaced and that’s all I know right now.” He referred all questions to Ron Kort of New Era Fighting, who is either Leopoldo’s manager or his promoter.

Leopoldo, of Irvine, Calif., was sentenced by a California judge on Monday to 10 days of community service and required to participate in a drug diversion program. He was arrested in February in Tustin, Calif., on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine.

So who is the numbnut at TMZ who read an OMA thread and took it as the gospel truth? I guess their need to be the first to report something outweighs their need to be correct.

 Dang! Hope none of this created any issues for him after just being sentenced in court on Monday and, then, rumors that he had left the country..

 Nobody is going to sue OMA.  WTF does he have that's worth taking?

Uh, obviously, that swank championship belt...

...although if Kimo wanted that, he'd probably just meet OMA in the Dairy Queen parking lot.
