Amateur MMA Fighter Salvador Flamenco Dies After Bout in Washingto - Hispanically Speaking News

Police are investigating what happened to mixed martial arts fighter Salvador Flamenco following his fight with an unidentified fighter in Washington earlier this month.
Flamenco, a 38-year-old amateur MMA fighter, is said to have traveled to Vancouver, WA to meet up with another fighter for a training session.
After his second day of training Flamenco reportedly said he was dizzy, vomited, and was rushed to the hospital after someone at the gym called 911.
Within an hour of being taken to the hospital, the Chicago resident was dead. An autopsy revealed he died of blunt force injuries and his death was ruled a homicide.
Despite that ruling however, it is unlikely anyone will be charged, as it appears the California-born fighter died as a result of a tragic accident.
Though an amateur mixed martial artist, Flamenco was not new to the sport. He reportedly began training in MMA while still in high school and took many trips like this to train with various fighters and trainers.
Following Flamenco’s death, another fighter suffered severe injuries during an amateur MMA bout in Chicago on the same day.
Jeff Dunbar, 20, was left paralyzed after he attempted a risky move during a match with Rudy Bahena on December 17 in Joliet, IL.
Attempting to get out of a rear-naked choke he had been put in by Bahena, Dunbar threw himself and Bahena’s body forward, attempting to peel his opponent off of him. This rarely used and extremely dangerous move, not only failed to work in this case, but instantly paralyzed Dunbar.
Though Dunbar did not die as a result of his injuries, both his story and Flamenco’s serve to demonstrate just how dangerous the sport can be.

All the time is hardly the right phrase. Least of all with amateurs in sparring, it does happen but it's quite rare.

It's stupidly rare you know, but the death of Paco Rodriguez the boxer has been covered over a fair few KOTV Boxing Weekly shows in UK...
