An MMA fighter is dead after agreeing to spar with someone on an internet forum

Not everyone should strive to be Bloodstain Lane and actually meet up with people solely for the purpose of punching them so many times that they puke off camera. Sometimes these things can take a turn for the worst, as illustrated by this KGW Portland story of an MMA fighter accepting a challenge from someone he met on an internet forum only to die in a local hospital hours later. Here’s an excerpt from the news item.

Police are investigating the death of a mixed martial arts fighter from Chicago who came to Washington to spar with someone he met online.

Investigators said 38-year-old Salvador Flamenco met the unidentified Vancouver resident on and agreed to spar.

The two fought each other on December 15 and 16, after which Flamenco began to show signs of “medical distress,” police said.

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he later died.

Our condolences goes out to the family of the victim. Hopefully people will realize that trolling is simply an internet phenomenon. If applied in real-life, undesired and mixed results can occur. [Source]
