TUF News: TUF 5 Veteran Robert Emerson Goes To Jail (Updated)

TUF 5 Veteran Robert “Gang Banger” Emerson goes to jail:

It turns out Rob Emerson – season 5 alumni of the The Ultimate Fighter – is going to be doing some time in the poke. 9 months to be exact. He and some other rich friends from rich neighborhoods formed a psuedo-street gang and terrorized unsuspecting white people. Watch this news report for all of the details. Emerson makes an appearance towards the end of the video. – bloodyelbow

UPDATE: “Out There” is right, the video was from 2000. He served his time prior to The Ultimate Fighter reality show. That said, it funny that the UFC never mentioned his background on the show. They didn’t want an ex-con, who did time for gang jumping and almost killing a young kid, to get out to the media.

  1. Bunch of pussies and I'm glad they got caught and put in jail. Its a sad story up until the end when the leader is crying about going to jail. Since Emerson cant win in the cage I guess he found that jumping people is the only way for him to actually win a fight. Enjoy jail fellas.

  2. We have this same thing in my city where there is a lot of crime and graffiti in good neighborhoods because the rich kids are trying to piss off mommy and daddy.

  3. That kid has a lot more crying ahead of him. No wonder he's a piece of shit. Just listen to his enabling Dad "they're taking drugs…..and the community did nothing." Go ahead and justify it for him, thats what he needs. What a joke. Jail/prison is the least of their worries. They're lucky they didn't get shot. I hope Emerson is blacklisted in MMA forever. Stupid Punk.

  4. Does Emerson still work for the UFC? I can't imagine so after hearing this scandal but I haven't heard any statement yet.

  5. I dont think they wanted Emerson anyway and I doubt he is under any kind of contract. He is one of those fight to fight people so he'll never fight in the UFC again.

  6. dude emerson is going to jail he isnt in the UFC anymore thats for sure.

  7. Big Bubbas going to love them white boys in the joint.

  8. i did emerson, but tha is fuced up that he and 15 other pl jumped 2 kid and emerson is a pro figher

  9. That is punk, one of the guys has a part of his skull unprotected by bone so they could have killed him. Thats not right, if you have a chip on your shoulder, step in the gym and get it off your back. Thats what I did. If you want to fight then train and get paid.

  10. Meatmallet says:

    What a joke. What did the community do to protect thes poor disadvantaged kids? What daddy didnt make enough to get you a new vett so you need to lash out? Every inmate watches the news and they will catch dumbo comming through R&C.

  11. Out There says:

    Guys…before you pass judgment. This was 7 years ago, almost 8. He was 19 or 20 years old. He has already served time for that incident. Do some more research before you start posting things. He still is under contract with UFC and there are plans for a fight in early February.

  12. The UFC doesnt care about having fighters that are ex convicts. Many fighters have made their name by streeting fighting. Dana is MF'ing anyone and anything in everyone of his video. The organization thrives on that bad boy image.

  13. who cares says:

    This is a disgusting of course, I'll agree. I know those guys and most of them are pussies trying to prove themselves to be tough. We all do stupid things, some more than others. But this happend YEARS ago, before Robert's career began. People live and learn… get over it and get lives!!!! Everyone keeps talking about how much time these rich kids have, DO SOMETHING BETTER WITH YOURS. he passed the background check, dont be haters!!

  14. This fox news special ran about a year after the actual fight, I was a sophmore when it aired and i graduated in 2002 this fight was before robert ever steped into a cage match. get over it.

    was it effed up yeah, so its like 8 years later and ppl wanna judge him by some halfass news report

  15. dane drebin says:

    it's all good manny will beat the shit out of him soon and kick him outta the ufc

  16. Its all fine and dandy to dish people, but what kind of reporter states rich kid this rich kid that… a hateful one!!

    You dont no where emersons been or even who he is.

    He regreted that incident tremendoulsy!! and if you knew him you would no that he has grown up and taken responsibility, he has heart a big one, and you cant say that about much fighters.

  17. P.S who beat the hell out of who???

    Oh Emerson took manny down, 12 sec round

    great job emerson
