    Jordan Parsons, 12-2
    First guy to beat Julio Cesar Neves (30-0 padded record at that time)
    Then lost to Bubba Jenkins,both fights in Bellator.
    He couldn't make a 4th fight there because it was hit-n-run by a driver 04.05.16

    I remember Jordan Parsons being scheduled to fight Adam Piccolotti back when I was super into Bellator. And then he just died out of nowhere. Kinda reminded me of my own mortality and how short life is.

    R.I.P to all of these fighters.

    Can't believe he only got 8 years and a manslaughter charge.

    Who was that massively overweight guy Ken shamrock fought in one of his last fights? I think he died not long after they fought.

    RIP to every one of them. Gone way too soon from this world.

    Autopsy also revealed CTE at the age of 25 with only one knockout loss, which to be honest scares the holy hell out of me.

    Tim Hague - On June 16, 2017, he suffered a brain hemorrhage after being knocked out in a boxing match against Adam Braidwood in Edmonton, Alberta. He died on June 18, 2017. If I remember correctly, at the time of that boxing match, he was on an indefinite medical suspension in MMA, due to frequent KO losses. He suffered four of them in a little less than a year.
