UFC veteran Kimo dead at 41

UFC veteran Kimo Leopoldo has reportedly died from complications from a heart attack at the age of 41.

Leopoldo made his MMA debut at UFC 3 in 1994 then spent 12 years professionally fighting until retiring after Extreme Wars 5-Battlegrounds in 2006.

In recent years Kimo tested positive for anabolic steroids and was charged for possession of marijuana.

Update: An attorney who has represented veteran mixed martial arts fighter Kimo Leopoldo said the 41-year-old “surfaced” early Tuesday afternoon, hours after reports of his death spread like wildfire across the Internet. “Kimo has surfaced and that’s all I know right now, Victor Hobbs said.”
