FIGHTER Ross Clifton DEAD

Super heavyweight Ross "The Grizzly" Clifton, an eight-year veteran of MMA best known for his TKO loss to Ken Shamrock at "Wargods" in February, has passed away from an apparent heart attack. He was 32 years old.

Clifton's former trainer, UFC veteran Cal Worsham, said the Rancho Cordova fighter was found dead by his wife Friday morning. Clifton was reportedly watching TV in a recliner chair when the wife went to bed Thursday night.

Official details of Clifton's death were not readily available.

"He was a jovial teddy bear inside of a grizzly’s body," Worsham told MMAWeekly on Saturday. "He was just so funny and such a character in the way you’d never expect from a giant of a man like that. He’s absolutely going to be missed."

Cal, Tigger, Ross once liked or still does the both of you. You are both intelligent, resourceful, capable men. Think about Peachy being almost an almost dead skeleton with cancer almost 2 years ago at 17, and why she's in perfect health and now going on 19. The reason? Non toxic, pure h2o. Both your bodies have felt the magic of stevia. Once the world feels the magic of pure h2o? I could retire you, your entire family, and even all of your friends if you did anything to deserve that added bonus. If I wanted to. Times $365 at a dollar a day against the entire American population. In one year, I'm $110 billion richer. More than enough to go around. Think about it.
