Ex UFC Fighter -- Assault with Deadly Weapon

3/31/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Several San Diego police swarmed in on former UFC bad boy War Machine last night and threw a spit bag on his head after cops say the dude assaulted someone with a deadly weapon.

UFC Fighter Busted - Assault with Deadly Weapon

TMZ has learned Machine -- which is the fighter's legal name -- was arrested outside a bar called Thruster's Lounge around 11 pm.

Law enforcement sources tell us Machine and another male were fighting with bouncers -- and when cops tried to approach the situation, War Machine took off running.

Eventually, cops caught up with the 28-year-old, threw him in handcuffs, and for some reason, put a spit bag over his head ... which is generally applied when the perp gets a little too aggressive with his oral fluids.

Machine was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon -- though it's unclear what the weapon is. He's currently being held in a SD jail.

UFC Fans are idiots    

Seems to be countless idiotic UFC fans reading these articles.

TMZ quotes "EX UFC Fighter" and "former UFC bad boy".

Not once do they say he is STILL a UFC fighter.

Its more amusing reading these dumb ass comments than the actual article itself.
