A Sanford, Florida man obsessed with Ultimate Fighting Championship has been arrested and charged with killing his mom by beating her to death late Wednesday night, Click Orlando reports.



When his uncle and cousins confronted him in the home, Adam Savage, 37, was hysterical and violent, trying to keep them from Vicky Savage’s bedroom.

Family members recounted to police that Savage was “covered in blood” and “freaking out" when they got to the crime scene.

As they were inside the home, a fight broke out between the family members because Savage wouldn't permit them into his mom's bedroom, relatives told deputies.




Deputies arrived shortly after family members called 911.


The victim's brother was able to get into the bedroom to find Vicki dead - after his two sons pinned Savage on to the ground in a vicious brawl, according to the police report.

According to a police report, obtained by the news outlet, Savage "occasionally" pretended to fall asleep when he was questioned about the what took place in his mom's home.

However, when officers changed the subject of conversation to Ultimate Fighting Championship fights, Savage would "perk up."
