R.I.P. | Rising Australian Fighter Dies Following Bad Weight Cut

Tragedy has once again struck the combat sports world, as a Perth teenager passed away over the weekend due to a complication with a weight cut.

The 18-year-old was attempting to make weight for a muay thai fight when she collapsed and died, presumably due to severe dehydration.

Weight cutting struggles have become some of the biggest issues in combat sports during the past few years. UFC fighters like Johny Hendricks, and Khabib Nurmagomedov have all had a lot of well documented weight cutting issues. Even strawweight star Paige VanZant has recently come forward and discussed her issues with making weight.
