UFC warrior Justin Levens found dead

MMA fighter Justin Levens and his wife Sarah McLean-Levens have been found shot to death in their Southern California home, authorities said.

The 28-year-old Levens competed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and other fighting federations.

Their bodies were found Wednesday afternoon in their Laguna Niguel condominium by the woman’s mother, who then called authorities, according to Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities said the bodies were found dead in a bedroom and a gun was also found at the scene.

Amormino said homicide investigators are looking into the case as a possible murder-suicide. There were no signs of a struggle, he said.

Justin Levens fought in the WEC (World Extreme Cagefighting), and was undefeated in his first seven bouts. He later went to the now defunct IFL and became a member of the Southern California Condors, training under the guidance of Marco Ruas.
