    Well apparently he is still alive, I do not have enough posts to post a link so here is the article from yahoo sports.


    Veteran mixed martial arts fighter Kimo Leopoldo, who made his debut at UFC 3, is still very much alive despite numerous reports to the contrary.

    Leopoldo’s attorney, Victor E. Hobbs, said “Kimo has surfaced and that’s all I know right now.” He referred all questions to Leopoldo’s manager, Ron Kort. Kort’s voice mail box was full and could not accept messages.

    Leopoldo’s death was first reported on an Internet bulletin board. The erroneous report was quickly picked up by celebrity website TMZ.com, numerous MMA websites, and was also reported by the New York Daily News and the Orange County Register.

    Leopoldo, 41, of Irvine, Calif., was sentenced by a California judge on Monday to 10 days of community service and required to participate in a drug diversion program. He had been arrested in February in Tustin, Calif., on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine.

    Leopoldo’s most famous match was his MMA debut, when he met Royce Gracie at UFC 3 in Charlotte, N.C. on Sept. 9, 1994. Leopoldo was the first fighter to give Gracie, the winner of the first two UFC tournaments, a real run for his money, before he lost via armbar submission.

    He largely made his name off the notoriety from the Gracie fight. Leopoldo last fought in 2006 and has a record of 10-7-1.

    More details to follow.

    Numerous MMA blogs and mainstream outlets such as TMZ and the New York Daily News issued reports with the bogus information before Leopoldo appeared later in the day at a press conference at the Orange County Sheriff's Department in California to debunk the rumors.
