In an unfortunate event in the MMA world, according to, International Fight League veteran Devin Cole was arrested by the Medford (Oregon) Police Department at 7:40 AM Saturday; Cole, 31, was charged with first-degree rape, 2 counts of first-degree sodomy and 2 counts of first-degree sexual penetration and is currently being held at the Jackson County Jail.  He is being held on – get this – $5,000,000 bail.

Cole had competed for the IFL’s Portland Wolfpack and Seattle Tiger Sharks, sporting a 2-4 record; after leaving Team Quest, he moved back to southern Oregon.  Back in May 2007, Cole had defeated Vince Lucero by TKO at the Palace Fighting Championship in Lemoore, CA; prior to his pro career, he was an All-American wrestler at Southern Oregon University.  Attempts to reach Cole’s representatives were unsuccessful; for more details on this development, continue to check back with Octagon Buzz as this story develops.

    Why in the world has someone not come to Devin’s defense? I know this man. He was a team wrestler with my son at Southern Oregon University and a good person. I also know from experience that being arrested in Jackson County, OR is very dangerous for the accused. Contrary to basic law where one is innocent until proven guilty, this does not apply in Jackson County. The residents and media there have nothing else to do but jump on the bandwagon to destroy a person’s reputation and credibility.

    I hope that Devin is exhonorated from all charges and the truth be known. Unforuntately, this incident will dog him for the rest of his life. Nobody should have the power to do that to another person.
