    R.I.P. Mike Bernardo



    A reliable source close to the situation has confirmed that K-1 legend and one-time MMA fighter Mike Bernardo has passed away. Further details will be provided as they become available.

    Damn it, only 42 years old. RIP Bernardo.

    Bernardo was one of the most feared strikers in the nineties. His fights with Hug and Aerts were epic.

    Time to rewatch old K-1 events.

    Damn. They (parents) don't make 'em like him anymore.

    Rest in peace, Mike.

    Police in his home city of Cape Town are yet to officially confirm Bernardo’s cause of death, but his students have been sending each other messages of support and comfort via social networks, with repeated references to Bernardo having suicided.

    A source in the kickboxing industry has also told Fighters Only that Bernardo is thought to have taken his own life. Friends have expressed surprise not least because Bernardo was a committed born-again Christian who was thought to take great solace in his faith.
