    Yeah... He fiddled a couple of teenage girls he was supposed to be training.

    And yet Josh Rosenthal is still not allowed to referee a fight.

    In 2012 he got sentenced to 42 months in prison, which he served before he was deported to Brazil.

    So no, he technically shouldn't be in prison. He'll probably never be allowed in the US again or fight there though.

    Sign him for a fight at WW and send Robbie Lawler over to Brazil to beat him up

    I am stunned to hear this. Always liked his fighting style, but after all the shit he was charged with doing, kinda hard to be fan anymore at all.

    He fought once in 2014 and in June of this year as well. He was KOed in under a minute in both matches.

    That vermin was released in prison last year (just two years for sexual assault) and deported.

    Well, I guess if he served his time and is free to work in whatever country he's fighting in...

    Wouldn't want him anywhere near my gym though...

    Rosenthal should be locked up forever. Hopefully, no-one was harmed by his dank doobies of dubious design.

    Rousimar Palhares will probably be stuck fighting there soon, maybe he could win back some fans by giving Hermes an extra couple of cranks on a heel hook.

    Good for him, if the sex with teenagers was consensual. If not, should have got way more. If <15 should have got way more. If not, he serves his time and has a right to do wtevr.

    It's important to note: even the law recognizes a difference between raping a child and unlawful sex with child (I.E., it was completely consensual and there was no real physical or psychological harm done, but it was still illegal.) The former's a felony, the latter's consequences [and exact definitions] vary from state to state (but typically don't exceed ~three years.)
    I always like it when old-guard fighters get good victories over solid prospects after struggling for a while.

    Dont worry, I dont think he would try and go after you.
    But then again 2 years in prison may have change his taste a bit.

    How much of a pathetic loser does one have to target underage GIRLS (not women) to have sex with, consensual or not? I hope this dirtbag gets concussed in his next fight.
