More details regarding the much discussed UFC 135 "Spygate" have come to light.

On ESPN's SportsCenter today, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson claimed that the alleged spy was a MusclePharm employee named "Leonard."

After the show, Jackson took to Twitter, saying that "I just outed the spy on Sport Center,its come on top who he is but out of respect 2#mucslepharm [sic] I won't tweet his name,he's done f*** em!"

However, I discovered that, in a recent MusclePharm United States Securities and Exchange Commission filing, it is disclosed that, "On September 16, 2011, Leonard K. Armenta resigned from his position as the Executive Vice President of MusclePharm Corporation...His resignation was not the result of any disagreements with the Company on any matters relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices."

Though no connection has been confirmed, there is now wide speculation that Leonard Armenta was indeed the "Leonard" named in Jackson's SportsCenter appearance.

Jones and Jackson headline UFC 135 tomorrow, Saturday, September 24th, at 9 p.m. Eastern.
