Bangrs/former bangers in pro sports?

Hi

This thread is inspired by the one talking about rappers who were/are bangers.
I wonder if some bangers made it the the highest levels of sports. NBA, UFC, NFL,...

Do you know any?

A few I found on internet:
Marquis Daniels (NBA) - Bloods (set?)
Javaris Crittenton (NBA) - Mansfield Gangster Crips (after joining the Lakers)
JR Smith (NBA) - Bloods (set?)
James Harden (NBA) could possibly be a Blood.
Zach Randolph (NBA) - Hoop Family (if somebody has more details and confirmation)

All pro boxers,

Eddie "Animal" Lopez - Hazard.

Ruben "The Maravilla Kid" Navarro - Maravilla.

Alex "San Fernando Hammer" Garcia - San Fer.

Hector "Boxer" Lopez - Toonerville.

Mike Christian was a pro bodybuilder and crip from L.A.

I don't know about any Mixed Martial Artists.

Thanks for the adds ;)

It's tricky with NBA because a lot of rumors are based on the sign players do that looks like "Blood killer". But I've seen A LOT of players doing it, and to me it's more a sign to celebrate a 3-prs shoot (it's always after a 3-pts).
So John Wall, Paul Pierce and many others have been categorized bangers while I don't really know if it's for sure.

Derrick Rose flashing Gangster Disciples signs? apparently it was just a "bad joke" from a "young naive kid"
