An Extreme Fighting Championship Africa fighter injured in a Feb. 27 fight has died, the organization announced Wednesday.
Booto Guylain, 29, suffered a “serious head injury” in the bout vs. Keron Davies — making his EFC Africa debut — at EFC Africa 27 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He had been hospitalized since, EFC Africa saying Guylain had “swelling and bleeding on the brain.” He died in the hospital on Wednesday.
My condolences go out to the family and loved ones of the fallen fighter. Really I’ve watched a bunch of MMA fights, and I’m surprised nobody gets seriously hurt in these crazy bouts. The fact that both men walk away and fight again, coupled with the apparent brutality of the match is why I enjoy watching. It also shows the skill of the fighters that they can subdue another man in prime condition so well without causing lasting damage. I’d say if I ever found myself in a fight like that there would be missing eyes and possibly dead parties if I can manage!
Still this man did not get up, he did not walk away, and he will not fight again. very sad.
But not a “Gun Death”, so it doesn’t count!
