Dana just sent titties a gift basket for knocking him off, kinda appropriate he was on Rampages team, maybe his "coach" can give him the name of a good lawyer.

The crazy thing is, this happened last spring which I think might have been just before the tapping of TUF 10. So, I am assume (and you know what they say about assumptions) Dana White & Co., knew about this before he went on the show.

Luckily for Jensen though that this is just a civil suit, so he will just end up broke and not in jail.

Yes, it's definitely too vague to draw any sort of conclusion as to what happened.

IDK if there's even enough circumstantial evidence to convict Jensen. It's entirely possible he could have pushed the kid and the kid fell and hit his head the wrong way.

Whether or not Gunderson demonstrated romantic interest in A. Jones is academic. They had a class together, they were part of a group taking a vacation together, Gunderson's mom needs to do that math before she starts trying to get money.

The problem now for Zak though is that in a civil case the plaintiff only has to show that there was a high probability that Jensen's action led to the death of Gunderson. It's not like a criminal trial where they have to "prove" beyond doubt that he was the cause. Also, should a jury decide the case they only have to come to a majority decision to award damages, meaning only 7 out of 12 jurors would have to believe it.
