If you spend time at MMA forums for any length of time you'll see people challenging others to get together and spar or even looking for people to spar with just "for practice." While most of these are just guys spouting nonsense because that's half of the reason the internet exists, there are times where the people involved are serious and it can lead to dangerous situations.

From OregonLive.com:

Investigators are looking into the death of a Chicago man who died after a two-day series of sparring matches with a Vancouver man he met in an online chat room.

Salvador Flamenco, 38, came to Vancouver on Dec. 15 after arranging the fights with the unidentified Vancouver resident through a website, www.allfighters.com, said Sgt. Scott Creager of the Vancouver Police Department. The pair decided to spar at the Vancouver man's home.

The two men fought that day and the next, but after the second day of boxing, Flamenco started complaining of dizziness and nausea, Creager said. The symptoms became more severe and by the time paramedics arrived, Flamenco had begun losing consciousness.

...

After an autopsy, the Clark County Medical Examiner's Office said Flamenco died of blunt-force injuries and ruled the death a homicide, prompting an investigation by police.

I see where you're coming from but this death is a direct result of an extremely stupid human being making an extremely stupid choice.

EDIT: I might come off as a little harsh there but seriously. Who does this? Who sets up a meeting to spar with a guy you have never met before who lives in a different country? And then spars too hard for too long two days in a row in that guy's house. Not even a gym, the guy's house... I mean come on.

I agree, and I don't think it's harsh. These guys are a pair of morons. He didn't deserve to die for his stupidity, but he also doesn't really deserve any sympathy either, because he caused his own death through unbelievable stupidity, and helps make the sport look horrible for the real athletes who are training properly.

Its a serious issue but not really lol
The jokes, I found funny. Then the replies even got better. Fat sloppy pussy lol

As for the two guys who met. Very weird. And exactly, who even does this? You meet someone guy and travel across the country to spare? You sure this wasnt a gay site who like it rough?
Very weird....and funny..just not the part of this guy dying...

Well its abit unappropriate but no where different than someone telling a joke like Rashad did....Am I right? but some reason I really took Rashads lighter...Because I visualize maybe this guy sparring and the other guy beating the hell out of him and then finally letting up...We do not know the facts...Maybe they talked for months...Maybe words who knows but I know one thing...

You have to be really careful with anyone you meet online...Anyone...
