Raphael Davis, 36, a former Los Angeles City firefighter and mixed martial arts fighter known as “The Noodle” was sentenced to probation after he paid $30,000 in restitution and completed 200 hours of community service for filing a false workers’ compensation insurance claim.

Davis pleaded guilty in September to filing the false workers’ comp claim in 2008, during the same time he was participating in mixed martial arts fights as “The Noodle.”

After placing Davis on probation for three years, Superior Court Judge David Horwitz reduced his felony conviction to a misdemeanor despite Deputy District Attorney Angela Brunson’s objection.
