Sam Vasquez Dead at 35

Posted 12-02-2007 at 02:47 PM by kds13
After sustaining blows to the head during a Mixed Martial Arts fight, Sam went down. In an occurrence that will surely be debated in the future, Vasquez was allowed to stand in an attempt to continue, but fell back to the ground. He was taken out on a stretcher and had minor seizures.

He had two separate surgeries to fix clots. He died Friday due to complications.

There are plenty of headlines that will surely make their way to the news soon:

Is MMA too dangerous?
Did the medical staff do all they could?
Why was Sam allowed to stand after the knock down?
Were there previous concerns about Vasquez's health?
If so, how was he cleared to fight?


But for now, it is a time for mourning. We can take some solace in the fact that Vasquez died doing something he liked and wanted to do, but his death is both tragic and sad.

RIP Sam Vasquez.
