NY Times Feature - Tomato Can Blues - MMA Related

Really interesting feature from NY Times about an Amateur MMA fighter from Michigan who faked his death, sat idly as promoters held fundraisers in his memory, proceeded to rob a gun store & now is looking at potentially life behind bars. Crazy stuff.

Thought this quote was interesting and can relate to how people who don't understand MMA allow for misconceptions to exist: "Everybody was looking at this guy like he was an M.M.A. fighter from Michigan, but in fact he was a small-time tough guy who got in a cage a couple of times.”
