Kimo -- Mug Shots Reveal Self-Destruction

2/17/2009 11:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has just obtained yesterday's mug shot of former UFC superstar Kimo Leopoldo -- and it's just plain sad.

Kimo

TMZ has learned Kimo has a history of legal issues besides the drug and stolen property charges he's facing from an arrest in Tustin, Ca yesterday. Back in '93 he was arrested for assault and battery and in '07 he was arrested for domestic violence.

Since then, he's become virtually unrecognizable -- a shell of the former fighting machine he used to be.

Kimo was released from custody early this morning. No word on when he'll be back in court.

Former champ Rich Ace Franklin was a highschool math teacher, Former welter weight contender Carlos Newton has a college degree in business mngmnt, Matt Hughes is a God fearing farm boy and the list goes on. Yes there are some with troubled pasts but the sport has given them a place to channel their rage and give something to work for and all of them are more dedicated to training and their sport than most of you will be dedicated to anything so stop talkin trash about things you know nothing about!!!

it is a shame that this man has lost everything he worked so hard to achive to addiction. And the sad thing about it is that he isnt the only one i can only pray for him and hope that he gets the help he very much needs before it kills him

I went to High School with this dude in the late 80's and used to watch him wrestle for the Interlake Saints. He used to toss around other wrestlers as if they were baby kittens. I never really spoke with him, mainly because I thought he'd eat me if I looked at him.

Off to jail Kimosabe!! What a freak. Most of those UFC guys are a few cans short of six pack and are like ticking time bombs.

wtf    

He doesn't look that different. He just needs to skip lunch, shave his head and hit a tanning booth and he will look like himself again.

Why does TMZ keep reporting on ultimate fighters? Are we really supposed to be surprised that people whose job it is to bloody and maim one another to the bitter end might have other problems...

Such a trashy world.

Yo Andy!!! This is a sport made up by athletes, some from troubled pasts, others with PHD's. It's not about maiming people as you so eloquently put it, it's a competition. Instead of making the typical uneducated assumptions, try looking into it next time. They are Mixed Martial Artists, not "Ultimate Fighters". And Kimo hasn't been one for a very long time. I highly doubt we'll see Fedor or Rich Franklin mug shots anytime soon.
