    The one they took are known for causing psychotic breaks and violence.

    never heard of any musheoom like that.... Soma in the Agerick is a distortive agent, but nothing... actually there are some species of soma that create berzerker like behavoir but in this country? Last I heard of something like that was in ancient Scandinavia

    That'd be the fly agaric, a very widespread mushroom in the northern hemisphere. It's been tied to berserkers, but it's mostly bullshit. Siberian and Sami shamans use it though.

    Apparently its effect vary wildly from person to person, so maybe you could freak out in a murderous rage after consumption.

    I would unleash my awesome knowledge of psychedelics but I am too cool for that ( I forgot the name of the mushrooms that were found :( I suck ).
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    ... and I am not really all that versed in psychedelics ... I just remember what I ended up finding out from some serious mushy fanatics one of which is a botanist.

    yes they do!

    Yeah I don't know, I do know that there is a wide variety of experiences tied to the fly agaric. If you guys are interested one of my friends out here is actually an expert I will ask him and post what he says. I owe him a phone call anyhow considering he is one of my son's god (godless as he says) father.

    ethno botanists have some good data. This guy had to be really tripping... I will say this: what really bugs me is that when I see a pic of the guy he looks psychotic.

    Man, I don't care how awesome the trip is. Fly agaric is too poisonous for me to **** around with.

    Why is this crazy incident being associated with MMA at all?
    The two guys had done a bit of training, but neither were pro fighters..or even amateur fighters from the sounds of things.
    This is just a couple of idiots who had a bad trip. And connecting them to the sport in any way is just media manipulation in poor taste.

    He got 50 years in the end:

    doesn't look like the Californian legal system considers being under the influence of drugs to be a valid defence. I think in the UK this is taken into consideration, although whether you'd get much sympathy after ripping out the heart and tongue of a living person is another issue.

    FTR he'd had one pro fight (first round stoppage win) at Resurrection Cage Fights:
