Today the MMA world has lost a legend far too young. Kevin “The Monster” Randleman was pronounced dead today due to heart failure after being hospitalized for pneumonia. Randleman lost to Bas Rutten via split-decision for the UFC Heavyweight Championship at UFC 20 before winning the heavyweight title at UFC 23. He then lost the belt to Randy Couture at UFC 28. He went on to compete against many of the best in the Pride Fighting Championships. He famously brutally suplexed Fedor Emelianenko (video below) before being submitted shortly after, knocked out Mirko Crocop and always came to fight. He will always be remembered for his bleached blonde hair and as a pioneer of MMA. He is survived by his wife and three children. May he rest in peace.
