He is wanted by Merseyside police who are looking to speak to him as part of an investigation into the supply of Class A and B drugs throughout the United Kingdom. It represents a dramatic fall from grace for a fighter who was one of the pioneers on the UK scene. Cahoon made his pro debut in at a stage when the sport was very much in its infancy. Competing under a variety of rulesets he lost nine of his first 12 fights but was able to turn his career around. Cahoon is originally from St Helens and is not the first MMA fighter from Merseyside to have his name connected to the supply of illegal drugs. According to Merseyside police Cahoon is believed to currently be in Dubai. He is wanted as part of an investigation which has seen nine people from Widnes, St Helens, Wirral, Liverpool and South Wales have charged with drugs conspiracy offences while three others remain on police bail pending further enquiries. These arrests all came as a result of co-ordinated raids in the northwest and in South Wales on July 16th. According to the Liverpool Echo the police seized high value goods including BMW cars and jet skis which would suggest that crime pays slightly better than a job as an MMA journeyman. The UK signed an extradition treaty with the UAE in and several fugitives have been sent back from Dubai to face justice in the British courts.
