Just to be clear: at this point, there is no confirmation of the statements made regarding Kimo.
MMA fighter Beau Taylor made a post two hours ago as of this writing stating that UFC and PRIDE veteran Kimo has died of a heart attack:
Greg Wilson of Newport BJJ Academy just called to give me the terrible news
BJJ Black Belt and UFC, Pride, K-1, Shoot Box, and WFA veteran Kimo Leopaldo died from complications from a heart attack earlier tonight at St Fancis Hospital in Costa Rica
He was 41 years old and a good friend and instructor to Greg.
Very sad news if true. I will follow up with an article once there’s confirmation or denial of his story. I’m not trying to sensationalize anything or make this site into a tabloid; merely making sure people are informed.
Let this serve as either a heads up that a legend has passed away, or that Matt Wiman trains with an absolutely pathetic, despicable dickhead.
