Report: Former UFC champ Kevin Randleman arrested for DUI and more

kevin randlemanThe tough road continues for Kevin Randleman.

The former UFC heavyweight champion and PRIDE FC veteran was arrested on Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and other charges last night in Nevada, according to

Here's a snip:

"... records also indicate that he was arrested on several charges including DUI, Speeding, Driving Without a Valid License, Intimidating a Public Officer, Malicious Destruction of Public Property, and others."

"The Monster" is still serving a one-year suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) when it was revealed he provided a non-human urine sample following his submission loss to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at PRIDE 32: "The Real Deal" on October 21, 2006.

He is now in Las Vegas as the wrestling coach for the Los Angeles Anacondas of the IFL. "The Chocolate Milkshake" -- as he is known to Japanese pro wrestling fans -- is also working with the head coach of the Anaconda's, Shawn Tompkins, on a potential return to mixed martial arts competition.

The two-time NCAA Division I Wrestling Champion from Ohio State defeated Pete Williams at UFC 23 in 1999 to capture the vacant heavyweight title. His title reign was brief, however, when Randy Couture stopped him the following year via technical knockout (strikes) at UFC 28 in round three of their championship bout.
