    "The life of a fighter involves a lot of suffering, constant dedication and a daily struggle against yourself. Regardless of wins or losses, every fighter is truly a warrior because walked the road to climb the ring, and there lies the greatest achievement. Some journeys are longer and happy, and others unfortunately end much sooner than we could to imagine. Treasure the memories, and respect the battles. In memory of Kevin Randleman, 1971-2016."

    Randleman always seemed like a really cool guy in interviews, I recently saw a picture of him looking slimmed down and really healthy. Such a shock to hear this news.

    I know everything looks better when viewed through nostalgic eyes.....but one of the things I loved about a lot of the Pride guys was the respect like that. I wrote a bunch more but this thread is neither the time nor the place. Respect Shogun. RIP Kevin.

    Fedor's and Shogun's messages about the sad passing of a true mma legend makes me all warm and fuzzy and its not even Valentine's Day yet.

    I almost cried
     
  16. Right in the feels, Randy's letter also brought a tear to my eye.



    "Kevin my friend , my sorrows swell and my heart sinks as the sun sets on our journey. I embrace the memories of our time together in laughter , in the heat of combat , and in tears as we stumbled through this world. I never dreamed that I would sit alone decades later in reflection at the adventures we shared. I see your swagger and smile , eyes twinkle with devious delight as you bounded high in intimidating preparation for battle always aware that all eyes were on you. Magnetic and powerful you seemed to glow with anticipation at what the struggle would bring. You showed me the reward of daily toil and the joys of reckless abandon. You lived a life unimagined by most with a philosophy of someone who seemed to know both sides of the coin. We battled vicious demons , some side by side, and reveled in the victories always willing to share the spoils with any one in need. This life you led laid open an example of happiness and freedom for countless souls including mine that we would never have had the strength or courage to face on our own. We went willingly with you and witnessed mercy, compassion, and the miracle that was you to all those you touched and wisdom through your falls. There is no explanation, excuse , or apology for your life because it requires none! The good was great , the bad was -well bad. It was 100% Kevin and I'am blessed to have shared it. See you on the other side. Randy Couture"

    yet some people like to trash on him just because of the Fans, weird, dude's one of the classiest MMA fighters and is generally quiet and takes his losses without complaining..
