“The Ultimate Fighter Season 2” runner up Luke Cummo was arrested on October 14 at 1:30 AM for driving while impaired by drugs in Nassau County, New York. Cummo was not arrested for drunk driving, however police were not able to determine the specific drugs that were in his system at the time. They were granted permission by the courts to run tests on Cummo to determine exactly what was in his system.

Cummo pulled out of his “UFC Fight Night 16” bout against Steve Bruno earlier this month due to an unspecified injury. Shortly after bowing out of his fight, and his arrest, Cummo posted the following message on his blog:

“Its (sic) amazing how life just zips by. Only a few years ago I was a single, up and coming MMA fighter with a few clients on the side. Now, I’m married with children and teaching full-time (well, technically part-time as I’m home weekdays with my son). This is a major reason why I decided to pull out of the ‘UFC Fight for the Troops.’”

Cummo went on to mention that he was looking for alternative ways to extend his career, and not “to do anything that will affect me negatively in the way of side effects or something later on in life.”

“I’m in it for the long haul,” Cummo stated. “So now I am doing Jubb’s Cell Rejuvenation program, not for a fight, but for my own health. I hope to be able to take this respite to heal my injuries naturally and improve all functions of my system.”

Perhaps the cell rejuvenation played a role in is erratic behavior the night of his arrest.
