    I honestly didn't know he still fought. Definitely one of my favorite fighters to watch in pride and dream. His fights with Alvarez, Mach and Yves are some of the best lightweight wars I've ever seen. Sad news.

    God damn it. Hellboy was absolutely amazing in his prime. Best wishes to him, hoping he enjoys a long healthy retirement.

    I hate to hear this. I first saw him against Rumina in Shooto and he was my pick in the Bushido tourney. Always came to fight, looked cool as fuck, allegedly smelt bad but was definitely a true Viking.

    Stay healthy Hellboy.

    Loved Hellboy in the Pride days, true warrior!!.

    He was involved in some of the most brutal wars in MMA history...I wonder if all that caught up with him...going to doo some googling to see if strokes have any association with combat sports...

    Hope he recovers well and has a good avenue to make a living. Guy was a great fighter in his day and stood by his values until the end. War Joachim.

    Loved how this guy hated the UFC and UFC fake fans!

    Get better and move onto the next fruitful chapter of your life.

    War Hellboy.

    Damn, that sucks. 37 is far too young to be having strokes.

    Hope he makes a full recovery, all the best.

    Damn, he's one of my favorite fighters. He should be a coach. He has always been a great grappler. He was a great striker in his prime. And he has lots of MMA experience and knowledge.

    I always liked Hellboy because he always brought it!

    Stay well.

    A buddy of mine had multiple strokes by 25. Sometimes you just don't know what'll happen.
