UFC vet Tony Halme was found dead at his home last night. Police has confirmed his death and that there's no crime involved. Halme had problems with drugs and alcohol in the last few years. He suffered a stroke couple years ago that caused a brain damage to him.

Tony Halme was the opponent in Randy Couture's UFC debut at UFC 13. Couture took his back and choked him out with a RNC in 56 seconds of the first round.

From Wiki:
"Tony Christian Halme (January 6, 1963 - January 10, 2010) was a former member of the Finnish Parliament, representing the True Finns party. He was also known by the pseudonym Viikinki he used while appearing in the Finnish version of the TV game show American Gladiators in the 1990s (Gladiaattorit). He has also been a professional wrestler best known for his appearances with World Wrestling Federation under the name Ludvig Borga, an MMA fighter and a professional boxer who held the Finnish Heavyweight Championship."

Halme has born about 800 years too late.

The guy belonged on a viking ship,not on a TV show.

very underrated character in the WWF.

Halme was also a recording "artist". Here's one of his music videos.

Who was the pro wrestler that Halme knocked out in the locker room in Japan?

Was it Scott Norton?
