Cops: UFC Legend Has Finally Meth His Match

2/16/2009 9:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

KimoHe's kicked the crap out of all sorts of UFC fighters, but now Kimo Leopoldo is battling a serious drug charge.

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."

Kimo, who famously lost to Royce Gracie in UFC 3, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and is still in police custody. Cops say there will also be an investigation into where the 41-year-old got his hands on the LBPD gear.

Kimo is a washed up has been. Anyone that watches and follows MMA will understand what I am saying. This does not surprise me in the least bit. MMA fighters are getting involved in all sorts of things to increase strength and energy. I am saying this because I train at a very recognized studio and have witnessed this stuff first hand.

Party 'till you die!    

And Kimo's buddy and fighting partner was that other MMA star that was also guilty of a vicious rape. I can't remember his name, but it was the Asian guy who threw the lethal hats in the James Bond flick (Odd Jobs?). I guess that big ol' Jesus tat on his back makes him like all of the other tweeker thugs who sport similar tats on their bodies. F'ing hypocrites!

I have a police uniform fetish, wish can I get a hot uniform like that so that I can play around in the bedroom wearing it! At least if I had a kinky cop uniform, I'd wear it at home in private, only some methhead idiot would wear it out in public.

Thanks for ruining the fetish for the rest of us.

Everyone is so quick to judge. I've known Kimo since 1996. All these years Kimo has had a drug problem on and off- and that's sad, but also not uncommon for athletes or celebs that experience the extreme ups and downs of that natural high and low. What the majority of people do not know is that Kimo is one of the gentlest nicest fighters in the world. Everyone in Huntington Beach knows that. He was one of the first and best MMA fighters in the world. It's just a real sad story and very sad to see Kimo look the way he does now. Oh, and the Coward says he looks like a retarded weasel... go back in your hole you little sorry-ass coward peasant. You will get yours some day when you open your suck to someone on the street and they rip the skin off your babyface with their teeth. - M060 USMC Hit Squad - Semper fi. Born to fight, trained to kill, ready to die, but never will. Something Cowards will never understand.

Muscles, meth and a cop outfit? Sounds like he was on the way to a paid trick to me. I have no trouble imagining him tweaked out of his mind being rode hard in a sling.
