2nd Death in MMA

MMA, as a sanctioned sport, recorded its second death.  Michael Kirkham fought in his first pro fight, got knocked unconscious, and never came to.  I didn’t know the guy, but feel a distant but distinct connection to him.  I’m a submission grappler and not a MMA practitioner, but the fight community seems to be a tight-knit bunch.  It’s sad to see endings like this.  Rest in peace, Mr. Kirkham, and God bless your family.
