MMA fighter Josh Samman died Wednesday morning after being hospitalized last Thursday. Damon Martin of Fox Sports confirmed the news today with Samman’s manager.
He was 28 years old.
Samman’s friend and roommate, Troy Kirkingburg, was found dead at the scene where Samman was discovered last Thursday. Samman remained in a coma until he sadly passed away this morning.
Whilst no herion had been found in Samman’s system per his mother’s statement, Hollywood Police suspect a drug overdose, was the cause of death.
Samman appeared on the 17th season of the Ultimate Fighter, where he would feature on team Jon Jones. He fought five times in the UFC, going 3-2 and defeating Eddie Gordon and Caio Magalhaes in “Performance of the Night” winning performances.
