MMA is a brutal sport with all kinds of personalities, from different martial arts and nationalities, trying their hand at a unique form of the age-old business that is prize-fighting.

While our beloved sport is well-represented by fighters such as Georges St. Pierre, Demetrious Johnson, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and several others, we often come across a few fighters who can’t quite keep themselves out of trouble… well, trouble with the law, to be specific.

Today, we take a look at some of the most epic mugshots of well-known MMA fighters that promise to shock you. In addition to that, we’ve provided the crazy backstories that led to these mugshots.

Joe Son is now serving a life sentence in prison

The story of Joe Son is without a doubt of one of the scariest. The South-Korean former MMA fighter and Austin Powers actor is a convicted felon serving a life sentence after being found guilty in the gang-rape of a woman that took place on Christmas’ Eve 1990.

Son along with an accomplice kidnapped, raped and tortured a 19-year-old girl, before releasing her naked with her pants tied around her eyes. His crimes would’ve gone untraced, but it was a 2008 probation violation which required him to provide a DNA sample that linked him to the 1990 gang-rape case.

In September of 2011, he was handed a 7 years to life prison sentence, with his partner also convicted in relation to the ‘90 incident. Furthermore, in October of the same year, he was suspected of having killed his cellmate Michael Graham -- a convicted sex offender --following which Son was charged for the crime in 2013 and convicted earlier this year.
