Tragedy has struck the mixed martial arts world, as fighter has been brutally murdered within his own home in Belem, Brazil. Now details from the horrid incident have surfaced.
As reported by Globo, On April 3, Brazilian fighter Adriano “Mamute” Santana was murdered. The fighter was shot in the face and stabbed multiple times while inside his own home after three armed assailants broke into the house. The fighter’s wife and nine-year-old son were forced by the three men to hand over their cellphones, as they were witnesses to the incident.
Here is a translation from the original report:
Mamute ran to his room, where his companion and his 9-year-old son were, but he was pursued by the criminals, who, arriving in the room, went to Hadrian. The victim would have asked for calm, but was shot with his face. He fell to the ground still alive.
The robbers ordered the cell phones of Hadrian and the woman. When they were leaving the house they realized that the fighter was still alive and returned to apply blows of knife to the chest of the victim who died in the place.
