UFC Fighter Josh Samman Dead At The Age Of 28
There is sad news coming out of the MMA world. Broward County (Florida) Medical Examiner and Trauma Services confirms Josh Samman (28-years-old) died Wednesday after being in a coma for a week.
According to multiple sources police responded to a possible drug overdose call in Hollywood Florida and found Samman, and his friend Troy Kirkingburg (an MMA announcer for a local promotion) unresponsive. Kirkingburg was pronounced dead a short time later but Samman was breathing and had a pulse. He was rushed to the hospital where he remained in a coma until his passing.
Samman’s cause of death is not currently known. An autopsy is scheduled but no toxicology report will be administered because Samman survived for days making testing almost impossible.
Kirkingburg’s cause of death will be determined after a toxicology report.
It is always a tragedy when somebody is taken too early, regardless of circumstances. Our thoughts and prayers are with Josh and Troy’s family.
