Sherman Pendergarst dies age 45

Heavyweight Sherman Pendergarst lost his battle with cancer Friday at Genesis Medical Center in Davenport, Iowa, the fighter's longtime trainer and friend Pat Miletich told

Pendergarst, 45, was not among the most-skilled mixed martial artists. But he was second to none when it came to being respected by his peers and fans.

"I really hate it when people (who) care for everyone are afflicted with suffering," Miletich said. "He was such a gentle soul."

Pendergarst last competed on Feb. 18 against Bruce Nelson. The light heavyweight bout was declared a no-contest when Pendergarst landed an illegal strike.

He fought once in UFC, losing by first-round knockout to heavyweight Antoni Hardonk in November 2006.

In his lone Bellator appearance on May 1, 2009, Pendergarst suffered a first-round TKO to Joey Beltran.

Pendergarst had a professional record of 11-18 with one no-contest.

Sad to hear, thoughts go out to his family.

Thanks to Leakler for the sig

Wow! He never got to the "Big Break" wins, but he's always fought impressive fighters, really sad news. Remember the Hardonk and Alexander fights well. Props to him for always stepping up to the toughest.
