    I mean of course in a recent (as in last 10yrs), cage style match.

    A guy by the name of Dredge - I think his first name was Frank - was killed in a Russian show 5 1/2 years ago.

    As far as I know no one has been killed in competing UFC or Pride.

    In fact only a short time ago UFC was claiming that no fighter has ever been seriously injured during a UFC match, to counter pressure from politicains that claimed UFC was a dangerous, out of control bloodsport.

    As for smaller federations or unsanctioned bouts, I don't know.

    DanDavis is correct. You can read an article about the death here:

    Actually the death was found to have little to do with the actual fight.

    Go away I'm talking to myself
