Bellator has decided to cut Dan McGuane (3-0) from their upcoming show after it was revealed that the fighter was convicted of manslaughter when he was a young man. Yesterday evening, Bellator released the following statement via Twitter.

@BellatorMMA Dan McGuane has been removed from the Bellator 81 fight card stemming from a previous incident.A replacement fight will be announced shortly


In 2005, McGuane and his twin brother got into an argument with an 18-year-old man who they beat to death. The argument allegedly started over name calling.

McGuane was scheduled to fight on the upcoming Bellator 81 card which takes place this Friday, November 16. A replacement name is being sought out.

Bellator 81 airs this Friday on MTV2. Check back at FightLine.com for results.

Good. I know it says the guy was convicted when he was younger but it's better for Bellator to cut a 3-0 guy and keep their hands clean.

Well, as clean as you can with Rogers and War Machine on your roster.

This guy beat an 18 year old kid to death when he was 20. Apparently he had bullied the kid he killed for years before he wound up getting in the fight with him that killed the guy. He wasn't a minor by any means. McGuane shouldn't be allowed to fight anywhere. I don't know how to put this link in adequately but I'm going to try. I hope this doesn't violate any forum rules but it's worth reading what happened.

shouldn't they have done their homework before signing him?

Isn't this like the third time that they've had a similar incident. I think this will be Bellator's undoing eventually. I could see WSOF gaining on them if they don't start evaluating these no names more thoroughly.

Painfully obvious Bellator does not do background checks

So fucking what? This is to all of you. So fucking what?

They got rid of the guy when they found out.

And by the way WSOF should probably do more than a single debut show before anyone starts saying theyre gaining on anyone.

That made me feel sick to read. Two huge guys bullying a smaller guy to death over the course of a few years. I'm astonished it was only a manslaughter charge.

Well a guy like him commits very sick shit like that and gets off after only a few years because our prisons are flooded hard with soft drug crimes and minor offenses....

So thank the system for rushing convicted rapists and murderers out for the sake of being able to arrest pot dealers and Vicodin users.

I think the point is, they should know what these guys are about BEFORE they sign them

That story is sick he should still be allowed to fight on the card though...

































.... just with both hands tied behind his back and with the referee giving a 5 second handicap before stepping in.
