This isn’t officially confirmed yet, but we thought we’d pass on the news that multiple sources are reporting this morning claiming that former UFC fighter Kimo Leopoldo has died from complications resulting from a heart attack. Details at this point are still rather hazy, but if true this marks a sad end for the fighter with an often tumultuous life in and out of the cage. He was 41 years old.
Leopoldo recently found himself in the news after an arrest for drug possession in southern California. Before that he made a very public run for the Executive Officer position within the California State Athletic Commission, where he hoped to turn his past record for steroid use into an asset rather than a liability. There’s no indication yet whether drugs might have played a role in his death. More on this as it becomes available.
