    He's up and around? That's good. How did he seem at the time?

    What ever happened to "the smashing machine"?
    He's slated to fight Brock Lesnar at UFC 200

    Hard to tell. He remembered me, which only shows you that I"m an ass and don't really know the affects of a stroke.

    Walking with out a cane and not slurring words would be a good sign.

    John Matua. I'm amazed he fought again after getting rolled over by Tank.

    I saw the smashing Machine in an event called cage rage in the uk in 2007, it was sad he was beaten easily by Mustapha Al Turk, who went on to fight in the ufc vs Cheick Kongo.
    Al Turk was a European ADCC Heavyweight Champ so was not an easy fight. Kerr looked old his movement looked like he was not in best condition, a sad shadow of his former self. i hope that gives you some idea.

    My partner Fadi trained with Sam at Revolution Dojo in Houston. I was still living in Houston when Sam passed away. The MMA community was in shock - I believe Sam was the 3rd MMA fatality. The Renegades promotion actually shut down for a while due to this, I believe.

    I never knew Sam personally - I trained at a different camp at the time - but I heard he was a great guy in and out of the gym. May he RIP.

    Corey Hill might end up on this list too soon. :(
    Such an extensive injury when you're that old...
    And he has a family to feed.

    I found Evan Tanner's death to be the most disturbing out of all of them. Having spent some time in the desert, I can honestly say that I do not think that's a good way to go.
