The death of legendary mixed martial arts head coach Robert Follis has been ruled a suicide by the Clark County (Nev.) Coroner, a spokesperson from the coroner’s office told MMA Fighting on Monday.

Follis, the former coach at Xtreme Couture and a founding member of Team Quest, died Friday of a gunshot wound to the head, the spokesperson said. The place of death was Nevada State Route 160. Follis was 48 years old.

I wonder what drove him to pull the trigger, didn't seem like he was pushed out of Xtreme couture fight team...maybe the pressure of opening his own gym was too much. Also Follis looks way bigger in some of these pics than i remember him being, he's a fair 2-3 inches taller than Randy and he is at least 6''1...

Sad. I read a piece by The UG and someone close to him was quoted as saying he lost his brother (?) or a relative close to him and has been eating him up over the last year or so. Said he’s been having a real tough time dealing with it.
