A Brilliant, thorough article from one of MMA's premiere journalitsts. http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/2/1...leman-as-both-unique-character-and-maybe-ufcs Some quotes: He was the second youngest boy in a family of 11 children. "For me, I wrestled, and it was definitely a vehicle for getting me out of bad situations which I would have been in," Randleman said Randleman described his entree into MMA in 1996. "I was sitting at home in Sandusky, Ohio, and I had my oldest son, Calvin, with me, and we were watching the WWE SummerSlam or something," he said. "Mark Coleman called me and asked me if I wanted to fight, and I said, `Nah, not really.’ And then he said, `$30,000.’ So I said, `Oh s***, who I go to kill?’ He said, `No, you just got to win three fights in one night.’ Well, that’s what we used to do in college. We fought a lot. It’s not like we fought on campus, but we would go off campus and I literally fought every weekend." He remained with UFC until early 2002. He dropped to light heavyweight, but was knocked out by Chuck Liddell. He won via decision over Renato "Babalu" Sobral in his last UFC fight. "Short and sweet, I was in jail," Randleman said the MixedMartialArts.com interview. "It was baby mama drama. She wasn’t a very good mother and I loved my boy. I was in jail because I told the judge off. I was never known for my patience. I think Dana White would have understood, but cell phones weren’t like they are now. When I got arrested, I had like two seconds. And then I was in jail for 35 days. I didn’t have any numbers whatsoever and none of my people had any numbers. When I got back, I called Mark (Coleman) and Mark said that I got released." "Behind the man was a gentle soul and loyal friend who will be missed by many and who loved him behind the cage," said his wife Elizabeth Broglia in a statement. "The Ohio State University, UFC, MMA and Sandusky, Ohio communities share in the loss of Kevin’s passing. Life without The Monster will never be the same."
