Following a three round fight on Friday night, a Roufusport kickboxer passed away in the early hours on March 29. An eye witness details the final round of his last fight for Bloody Elbow.

Sad story that could have been prevented.

The accounts from those in attendance make it seem like this should've definitely been prevented. Sad to hear. RIP.

Very, very sad to hear. RIP Munson.

This is one reason why I actually didn't have a problem with the Rony Jason - Siler stoppage. Dude was obviously concussed. Siler took a right to the jaw, grabbed the top of his head (not even where he was hit), then took a super hard left and was floored. Yes, he was not out, and was actively defending himself, but how far do we let it go?

Much is said about the standing 8 count in boxing and how bad it is. But in MMA, without such a rule, there is really not much of a clear definition of when to stop a fight, or how much punishment a fighter can take. How often do we see fighters take punishment FAR beyond what they should? Cain-Rothwell, Glover-Maldonado, Curran-Warren, we've all seen those atrocities.

Maybe instead of looking at fights like Barao-Faber 2 as bad stoppages, we need to look at it as a life potentially having been saved.

Terrible news, so many ways it could have been prevented. I wonder what his corner were doing at this point.
