Last month, Charles Dion McDowell became an overnight celebrity after his mugshot went viral when the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office posted his mugshot on their Facebook and everyone made fun of his ridiculously large neck.
Apparently neck guy is trying to cash in on his new found fame. Not only is neck man selling a hoodie with his mughshot on it but he has a new Instagram page and appears to be training for an MMA fight.
Charles Dion McDowell, who became known as the “Neck Guy” after two of his mugshots went viral online over the last month, is in conversation to possibly compete at an upcoming Island Fights boxing or mixed martial arts event 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.
