Sam Vasquez of Houston may have become the first fighter to die from injuries sustained in mixed martial arts competition in North America.

A report by The Fight Network cited the Harris County (Texas) medical examiner's office confirming Vasquez's death at 8:15 p.m. Friday. The cause of death was not released.

Vasquez had been battling for his life since taking a hard right to the chin from 21-year old Vince Libardi on Oct. 20 during a Renegades Extreme Fighting show at the Toyota Center in Houston. The blow knocked Vasquez out and he was rushed to St. Joseph Medical Center, where he stayed until moving to hospice care on Monday.

The 35-year-old Vasquez was competing in the featherweight division (145 pound weight class) in the third match of a 12-match card promoted by Saul Soliz, the longtime boxing coach of Ultimate Fighting Championship superstar Tito Ortiz. The show was overseen by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Calls to the department on Sunday were not immediately returned.

After taking a flurry of punches from Libardi, Vasquez collapsed in the ring and the fight was waved off at 2:50 of the third round. Emergency medical technicians worked on him in the ring for several minutes until he suffered what appeared to be a seizure and was rushed to the hospital.

Vasquez's condition worsened from there. On Nov. 4, two weeks after being admitted, he underwent the first of two surgeries to relieve the pressure of a large clot in his brain, then had a massive stroke on Nov. 9 and was placed in a medically induced coma.

or that guy in russia

I was talking about how he said MMA is completely safe; that is the reason I put the statement in his post that I was referring to in bold.

Maybe some of them can be considered warriors...

2 weeks ago GSP claimed that people like him (non-violent practitioners of MMA) aren't true fighters. He admits they're just mixed martial artists. Whereas MMA fighters that love a good slugfest (Wanderlei?) can be considered proper fighters. So maybe in that instance they can be referred to as warriors.

But it's all in the eye of the beholder

Keep your rant for the bar

While I agree with you that fighters aren`t exactly a prime example of a `warrior`, you arguments are incredibly biased.

Quote:
If you were true warriors you would sign yourself up for the military and go fight in a war in the Middle East
Have you ever been overseas? Do you actually understand what goes on over there? You`d be surprised at how many soldiers don`t see any action and when they do it`s not at all how you imagine it. Today`s wars are quickly turning into who can push nuke button first...

Quote:

Please inform yourself before making comments such as this. It may be safer than going to war, but it`s no walk in the park.

I think I'd rather watch a chicken or cock or dog fight than watch MMA boys slip and slide with each other any more
Your a disgusting excuse for a human being. Forcing to helpless animals to kill each other for entertainment has no relevance in a discussion on warriors.

Get over yourself. The term is used loosely because of the spirit some fighters show. If a bunch of morons in a bar think their warrios because they wear tap out gear, pay them no mind, they re everywhere.
