Justin Eilers 1978-2008

Quote:
Former UFC and EliteXC heavyweight contender Justin Eilers was shot to death earlier today in Canyon County, Idaho, in what is being reported as a domestic disturbance turned deadly.

James Robert Malec, believed to be the boyfriend of Eilers mother, was arrested and charged with second degree murder after allegedly shooting Eilers once in the chest in front of a group of relatives after the two were engaged in an altercation.

Paramedics were called to the scene but were unsuccessful in their attempts to stabilize him.

Eilers (19-7-1) was probably most known among casual fans for his three straight losses over a year’s span in the UFC. From February 2005 to February 2006 he dropped three fights — each by first round technical knockout — to Paul Buentello, Andrei Arlovski and Brandon Vera, respectively.

However, Eilers was on a very impressive streak as of late, having won 10 of his past 12 fights. After falling to Antonio Silva at EliteXC ‘Unfinished Business’ back in July, Eilers was targeting a debut at light heavyweight to further refine his improved skill set and once again prove he was ready for the big stage.

This disturbing news comes barely a week after former UFC and WEC competitor Justin Levens was found dead - also by gunshot - in his California home.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Justin Eilers in this very difficult time. Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more details on this tragic story as it continues to unfold.
Wow, truly sad, RIP Justin Eilers...


EDIT: Sorry, didnt realize this wouldve been posted in the UFC section.

He wasn't a good fighter, don't say he is.

RIP though. Tragic.

I remember watching Justin waaay back in the day when I first started renting ufc videos. One of my homies gave him the nickname "Cornfed" for obvious reasons. No, he wasn't the best fighter I have ever seen, but I think he's among the people who helped in some way to bring MMA to where it is today.

May God Bless and keep you, Justin Eilers. Rest In peace.
