    I just read on a facebook BJJ group that Alex 'Bada' Andrade died on the mat recently?
    I googled and couldn't find anything, does anybody know anything on this?
    He's an ATT Black Belt under Renato Tavares.

    There is a thread on this subject on the Underground
    http://www.mma.tv/tuf/index.cfm?FID=0&a=628&TID=1249371

    I just heard about this yesterday when I was talking to a buddy of mine who trains with Helio "Soneca" Moreira. I heard Helio was taking off to make it to the funeral. And from what I read on the link above its not the Lion's Den fighter, but a black belt who trained with Renato Tavares.

    Either way, the guy died on the mat doing what he loved. RIP.

    Alex was the first one to put me to sleep, I mean wake up on the other side of the room with a bunch of concerned faces looking at you while your thinking "how did you all get onto my bedroom" kind of sleep.

    It was with a baseball bat choke as I "passed" his half guard. It was my first week as a purple belt and he was a brown belt at the time.

    RIP mt friend. We are not sure as of yet what exactly happened. We suspect it was a heart attack. Renato is currently taking donations to fly Alex's body back to his family in Brazil.
