Oops! Looks like fighting for Bellator while on work comp might not have been the best idea ever for Raphael Davis

Oops! Looks like fighting for Bellator while on work comp might not have been the best idea ever for Raphael Davis

Everyday people come up with their own personal best idea ever. Whoever decided to put fried chicken and waffles together on a plate, thank you for the ingenuity. That qualifies as a best idea ever moment. Unfortunately Gladys Knight and some guy named Roscoe are getting all the props for your personal best idea ever. I just want you to know while you are somewhere out there hovering out that cast iron skillet of bubbling peanut oil, you and your innovative palate are appreciated.

Sometimes though, sometimes an idea turns out to not be the best one ever. It happens everyday. Sticking roman candles in your butt and lighting them-not a great idea but someone, in fact many someones (judging by the number of youtube video uploads of this activity) thought this was the best idea ever at some point. I’m sure that best idea ever feeling wore off pretty quickly afer a trip to the emergency room and a few days of trying to go to the bathroom with neosporin covered gauze pads tapped to their buttocks.

Sometimes as humans we experience a deficit of common sense and need to learn things the hard way. Raphael Davis is now figuring out that fighting for Bellator while out of work receiving work comp benefits from the LA fire department is probably not going to qualify as his best idea ever. According to a FoxNews.com story, Raphael Davis-light heavyweight Bellator fighter and Los Angeles firefighter was arrested on Tuesday and being charged with four felony counts of insurance fraud.

Davis fought seven fights during the time period he was receiving worker’s comp benefits from the city of Los Angeles fire department and went 6-1. The type of injury that prevented him from working has not been revealed, but it apparently wasn’t enough to keep him from fighting for a major MMA promotion-on internet streams and national TV…for lots of people to see. At this time Davis is being held on a $30,000 bail and could face as much as five years in prison. All I can say to that is ‘SMH’. [source]
