    Yikes. Very sobering

    All the best to one of the founding fathers of the FW and Bantamweight divisions.

    Oh no. =[

    This is horrible. I was just thinking about him the other day, and ended up watching him KO Royler. A true legend of the sport, someone who helped put the lighter weight divisions on the map, and one of the hardest pound for pound hitters this sport has ever seen.

    Hopefully he KO's cancer faster than Miyata.

    I hope you’re right, bro. Your post made me feel a little better. He’s a legend of the sport, and all true MMA fans who understand the history of MMA will be pulling for him.

    Does anyone know what kind of illness it is, exactly?

    The thing is that he's STILL in excellent condition which makes it very surprising

    Hope he gets well soon
