Eight year veteran MMA fighter Ross "The Grizzly" Clifton was found dead late last week in his home, according to a report from MMAWeekly.com.
The super heavyweight is perhaps best known for being Ken Shamrock's last opponent at the February "Wargods" event. According to the report, Clifton passed away from an apparent heart attack. He was 32.
The MMAWeekly report cites UFC veteran Cal Worsham, Clifton's former trainer, as saying Clifton's wife found him Friday morning after Clifton was watching television in a recliner the night before. No other details are known at this time.
