    Evan Tanner vs Justin Levens at UFC 59. Levens was a murder suicide I believe with him and his wife, and Tanner got lost in the desert.

    As far as I know, yes. All of Justin Eilers' opponents are still alive.

    Kevin Rosier, the semi-finalist in UFC 1, passed away in April of this year. May he rest in peace. As far as I can tell, all of his UFC opponents are still alive. I know that the thread asks for both competitors to have passed away, but I thought that this was a good place to remember one of the oft-forgotten trailblazers of MMA.

    OK, not entirely relevant (sorry I don't know why I'm obsessing over this thread), but Justin Eilers' first fight after leaving UFC was a win over Sherman Pendergarst in an outside promotion; Pendergarst would fight in the UFC soon after, losing to Hardonk. Both Eilers and Pendergarst have since moved on, and may they both rest in peace.

    Career or corporeal?

    Corporeal death? Cant think of any. Maybe Ross Clifton fought someone who also then died but I am not sure.

    Career death? We would be here all night.

    And finally, I am worried about the TS. This is not a healthy or normal thing for a human's mind to consider. Or maybe it is. I suppose the macabre tends to generate curiosity.......
