Sam Vazquez was the man who tragically died in that fight in Houston. Of fighters that have died that haven't been named Justin Levens is one

Justin Levens - murder/suicide
Sam Vasquez - I believe the only fighter who dies from sanctioned MMA in North America

Douglas Dedge: MMA's first official death. He wasn't supposed to be medically cleared to fight.
Samuel Vasquez: Died weeks after getting KO'ed in fight.
Justin Levens: Suicide and murder of wife.

And I can't remember their names but there was also some MMA fighter who was murdered after being dragged to death, and one seemingly fit, young MMA fighter who suddenly died and was on the front page of Sherdog a few years back.

Some other MMA-related figures
Carlson Gracie
Helio Gracie
Mask of TapOut
The father of the Fertitta brothers
