No one else has broken this news story yet so I hope its not true.


"TMZ has learned former UFC fighter Justin Levens and his wife were found dead from gunshot wounds in a home in Laguna Niguel, Calif. earlier today.

Sources say cops are investigating their deaths as a possible murder/suicide.

Levens had a career record of 9-8 and fought in several different MMA leagues, including the IFL, WEC and UFC."

Sadly, it's true. Weekly, F4WOnline, and Sherdog have all confirmed it.

Along the lines of what I've read, but CNN and UFC got his record incorrect. Sherdog shows his record as 9-8.

While I'm thinking of it here are links to the articles I've found, some have a few more details than others:

Weekly Article


F4WOnline Article

Sherdog Article

Nothing yet on the other sites I check (Mania, Junkie, BloodyElbow) but I imagine they'll have their articles up sometime today once word gets to them.

I'm going to try and put this in a way that's not bashing...TMZ is a site (and TV show) that specializes in, I think the term would be "sensationalization". If there's dirt on someone, even if it's negative, they will sling it. They don't care who they might offend, if they sue they've got the money to burn. Unfortunately it's kinda hard to stop these people from doing/saying things like that because it gets a lot of interest from people who think they know all about this stuff when they really don't.

theres no rule against TMZ bashing, these guys are just paparazzi scavengers and if theres any justice in the world karma will catch up to them.
