Wrong neck of the woods

Charles McDowell, 31 years old, rose to Internet fame this month after two of his mugshots went viral. 

Check out the instant classics below: 

His initial arrest was for Fleeing/Eluding Police with Lights & Sirens Active, Possession of Meth with Intent to Sell/Manufacture/Deliver, Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Sell/Manufacture/Deliver Schedule II, Possession of Controlled Substance without a Prescription, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Equipment.

Yep, that's a laundry list. 

What better way to redeem one self than to fight. 

Now the man with the crazy thick neck has an offer to compete at an Island Fights event in 2019.

According to Island Fights CEO Dean Toole. McDowell, who’s never fought competitively and thus would be in an amateur bout, has an offer from Toole to train at the organization’s Pensacola facilities for a potential bout in February or April 2019. “He hasn’t made some of the best choices in life in his past so maybe something like this will be a good step in the right direction towards something positive,” Toole said

He even posted on his Facebook page claiming he's been training. 


This guy should try boxing rather than MMA. 

With that size neck, he should be able to take several punches without being knocked down. 

If he goes the MMA route, his neck won't factor in as much. 

Either way I want to see this dude take a punch.
