Man, this year in the MMA world has been absolutely full of tragedy. I look forward to a better '09.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Justin, his family and friends.

Just read this and did a double-take when I saw the first name Justin...was thinking I was reading more about Levens, now I saw it's Eilers. I'm just in a lot of shock right now.

That is horrible. Sad tragedy to say the least.
There have been a few of them for sure recently.
My thoughts go out to his family.
I don't know if "murdered" is the proper term to use for the headline though.
The details aren't out but it seems it was a domestic dispute that went horribly bad. His mother's boyfriend may have been defending himself.
Let's not forget Justin was a large and powerful MMArtist.
The charge will probably be manslaughter which is a far cry from murder.
The mother's boyfriend might even be found innocent on the basis of self defense.
The term "murder" insinuates premeditation.
I certainly mean no disrespect to Justin.
I am saddened to hear this news.
RIP

Quite a few bans-some very long-are coming from several posts I just had to delete. Keep all the racist comments and the like far away from here, people.
