McGregor pays tribute to late MMA fighter Joao Carvalho



Joao Carvalho, 28, became sick after a misfortune by technical knockout (TKO) to Charlie Ward, a colleague of UFC star Conor McGregor, and was taken to Beaumont Hospital in the Irish capital, where he experienced crisis cerebrum surgery yet neglected to recuperate and passed away late on Monday evening.

A Portuguese Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) contender has passed on taking after a Total Extreme Fighting occasion in Dublin’s National Stadium at the weekend.

“It is with great sorrow and sadness that we write these words, that the death of the athlete Joao Carvalho happened after 48 hours in critical condition,” an announcement from Carvalho’s Vitor Nobrega group read.

“On the site [Carvalho] was immediately assisted by the medical team and then quickly transported to the Beaumont hospital, where he was subjected to brain surgery, after which the athlete remained in critical condition during the 48 hours following, eventually passed away on this Monday at 9.35 p.m.”

McGregor, who was available for the battle including his kindred Straight Blast Gym contender, posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday, saying he was confused with regards to the heartbreaking result of the battle and calling for “everlasting appreciation and admiration” for Carvalho.

Passings in MMA are to a great degree uncommon, with just four recorded in authorized challenges preceding that of Carvalho.

In any case, the issue of wellbeing in battle sports has been raised as of late, after Nick Blackwell, the British middleweight boxer, was set into an instigated trance like state taking after his annihilation to Chris Eubank Jr. in March.


The 25-year-old woke on April 2 and said on Tuesday he was “showing signs of improvement consistently”.

Remarkable footage from the battle indicates Chris Eubank Sr., Eubank Jr’s. dad, advising his child to focus on Blackwell’s body because of a paranoid fear of for all time harming his overmatched adversary.
