  1. Wow – I’m shocked at your article. A person is innocent until proven guilty. Your article says “a 21 year old female WAS sexually assaulted”…we don’t really know that yet, do we? She claims she was, but so have other women who wanted something from an athlete.

    Then you say “The male IS a 28 year old Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter from Las Vegas”. Again – how do you know he dcomment_ID this?

    This is really poor blogging by some wannabe journalist. You should have sacomment_ID “a woman CLAIMED to be sexually assaulted” and “A 28 year old Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter from Las Vegas has been charged with the crime.”

    The way you’ve written it, you’re police, judge, jury and soon to be executioner! Shame on you.
