In 2005, McGuane and his twin brother got into an argument with an 18-year-old man who they beat to death. The argument allegedly started over name calling.
McGuane was scheduled to fight on the upcoming Bellator 81 card which takes place this Friday, November 16. A replacement name is being sought out.
