    Most of you have probably never heard of Edwin Valero. He's had trouble getting a license to fight in the U.S. because of a brain injury he sustained in a motorcycle accident.
    The guy had a lot of talent. I'm not sure if they have the death penalty in Venezuala.

    Killed himself in jail this morning, according to police. Hung himself with his own clothes.

    Wow. It unraveled pretty quickly at the end but Valero had been troubled for quite a long time.

    Good riddance to the lowlife cocksucker. RIP to his wife, and bless their orphaned children.

    The children growing up without their mom (and now their dad) and them knowing why their parents are gone is the worst part of it for me.
