Famous for the blows to groin he took and his red Speedo bathing suit, one-time UFC fighter Joe Son has left the bizarre pages of MMA history and entered prison. Last Friday, Son was sentenced to life in prison for a crime he committed in 1990. Son was incriminated for DNA collected at the crime scene, according to the Orange County, California, district attorney.
The crime was perpetrated on December 24, 1990. According to the California court, a women was kidnapped and raped by Joe Son and Santiago Lopez Gaitan while walking her dog in Huntington Beach. The court passed judgement this Friday, 21 years after the crime was committed.
Son had four MMA fights, among them a bizarre exchange of blows with Keith Hackney. He appeared in seven moves in the 1990s, including the hit “Austin Powers” series.
