    Death In UFC?

    Did anyone ever die in the UFC? who was it and what happened? I saw a fight on UFC hits, it was tank abbot vs. david tua(?). tank hit him HARD and tua hit the mat like a ton of bricks. His arms started to extend in a rigormortis like manner and his legs were shaking. It was hard to watch.

    do they still allow elbows in UFC? When were they taken out?

    There has only been one recorded death in MMA, and it did NOT happen in the UFC. It happened in an unsactioned bout overseas. Elbows are still allowed in UFC but not Pride.

    Yeah, the guy who died... Before he fought, he kept blacking out during training.

    David Dodge or something was his name. He was banned from fighting in all US and sanctioned events overseas because he couldn't pass the prefight physical and he may have had some type of mental problems.

    Apparently he was blacking out and was told he wasn't allowed to fight. He went over to fight in some underground show in Russia that was run by the mob. He got clocked a few time and was helped out of the rind (he wasn't unconscious) he died later.

    I remember reading an artical about one of his fights in which he took the tape off of his wrist and began trying to choke his opponent out by wrapping the tape around his neck. He definitely had something wrong with him.

    lol david tua wtf hes a professional boxer and never faught in the UFC. your thinking of John Matua and that was a nasty KO,\. i really prefer the Nelmark ko when he's ko'd and half cocked left and right against the fence like a dead guy.

    WTF?

    Do you know what the words you used mean? Seriously, not to be a dick like I usually am, open a dictionary.
