Damn, driving on a suspended license (with a broken hand), over 20g's of weed and some Molly? Throw in the paraphernalia and that's no small bust. Quite the perfect storm of bad decisions actually. Bums me out, Strauss is a great featherweight. Hopefully he can get his shit together.

This is awful news Straus has been looking extremely good lately I wonder why he turned into OG of the year.

these arent charges that just go away with some fines. i could see him doing some jail time and more than likely getting the ax from bellator. he's a good fighter but bellator cant be employing people like that.

Yo Daniel - - I'm sure War Machine has some good advice for ya.....Hmmmm, the show JAIL airs on Spike, and so does Bellator....kinda goes hand in hand.

20G's is actually not a lot of weed. It's under 1 oz. I'm not sure how Florida's laws are but if this is his first offense he'll probably get out of it.

For reference my brother was caught with a pound of weed in the trunk of his car. He was arrested but did no jail time and was able to get out of it with just probation. This is in NY though.

The weed charge is nothing. They'll go after his ass for the X though.

Weeds no big deal but the amount he got caught with is still a felony along with the ecstasy. I think this will be prison time.

How did he get Molly in Florida lol I thought it was exclusive only in my home state, from my knowledge it's hard to find anywhere else.

Weed wouldnt be anything to stress, X def. Would be as some have said already.
Dont get these profiled people who dont.hire someone else, and just throw some dollars their way. Too risky, and now his career will be f'd due to it.

It just kills me to see this happen so often to professional athletes. Why would you even risk getting caught, when you are working your way to the top? Straus has so much potential, and now he just killed his chance to get to the UFC any time soon, if ever.
