International Fight League veteran Devin Cole has reportedly been arrested by the Medford, Oregon police department after being charged with first-degree rape.
The news comes from a report by Sherdog.com.
No details concerning Cole’s crime are available at this time other than the additional charges he received: two counts of first-degree sodomy and two counts of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration. Cole is currently being held at the Jackson County Jail on $5,000,000 bail.
Sporting a professional record of 8-6, Cole has seen mild success since entering the world of mixed martial arts in 2005, racking up wins over Bryan Vetell, Travis Wiuff, and Mike Kyle.
After being released from the IFL following four defeats in five fights, Cole signed on with the California-based Palace Fighting Championship where he most recently scored a first-round TKO of Vince Lucero last month.
