    Kickboxing Legend Ramon Dekkers Dead at 43



    Ramon Dekkers, Muay Thai and Kickboxing champion, and former trainer of Alistair Overeem has died at the age of 43, as reported by LiverKick.com:

    Reports are coming out of his home town of Breda today that Dekkers was riding his bike when he collapsed in a tunnel after feeling light-headed. A few bystanders attempted to assist him before emergency services arrived and attempted to revive him to no avail.

    Dekkers is a former 8-time world champion and one of the first Dutch Kickboxers to really make an impact in Thailand. He was instrumental in helping the sport of Kickboxing to evolve to what it is today and will always be remembered for his accomplishments in and out of the ring.

    Here's a highlight video of Dekkers in action:

    That's awful. Watching his highlight reels is what introduced me to muay thai years ago.
