LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. -- A mixed martial arts fighter and his wife were found shot to death in a Laguna Niguel condominium in what authorities said was an apparent murder-suicide.

The bodies of Justin Levens and his wife, Sarah McLean-Levens, were found Wednesday afternoon, Orange County sheriff's officials said. The 28-year-old Levens competed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and other organizations.

Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said the couple was found by the woman's mother, who called 911.

Lt. Mike Jansen says further information would be released Thursday.

i know this is going to seem like the wrong time to bring this up, but 7-2? Levens wasn't 7-2 since he lost to Tanner in 2006. since then he went 2-6 for a total record of 9-8. i just don't like it when people report the facts wrong.

The truth is that it shows fighters are just human like the rest of us. If you consider all the fighters the ufc and other orgs have employed, the chances of some of them meeting a trajic accident are actually reasonable.

Very sad news. It reminded exactly of the whole Chris Benoit thing in wwe. Its sad when people lose their way...

I mentioned that in the News forum when this was posted, someone incorrectly cited ufc.com's record for him where I used Sherdog's record.
