Former K-1 USA Fighter Sean O'Haire Passes Away at 43

Sad news today that former WCW/WWE wrestler and former K-1 fighter Sean O'Haire passed away yesterday at the age of 43. O'Haire's career began in WCW where he entered the WCW Power Planet where they trained new wrestlers. From there he ended up on WCW television in 2000 until the company was sold to WWE in 2001. He continued on to WWE (WWF at the time) where he competed under numerous gimmicks before he was released in 2004.

It was no secret that he loved fighting sports and was soon given an offer to compete for K-1 in 2004. O'Haire's focus was split between MMA, kickboxing and professional wrestling for most of his time in the ring, but he wasn't without controversy. K-1 had claimed that O'Haire had a 10-1 kickboxing record and 8-0 MMA record, which of course he had two MMA fights in 2004 that he won and zero kickboxing bouts until he made his K-1 debut. O'Haire couldn't quite hang in K-1, but brought them a lot of attention until he retired from kickboxing and MMA to settle down and be a barber in South Carolina.

Condolences to his friends, family and fans across the world.

Remy Bonjasky Accuses 80 - 90% of High Level Kickboxers of Doping

If you follow sports outside of kickboxing you know how much of a problem performance enhancing drugs are. Hell, we even had our first positive drug test at a GLORY event at GLORY 17. It is kind of the nature of sports, in a way; you want to be bigger, better, stronger and to be able to compete. If you think that everyone else is doping, you find yourself needing to do it to compete. There haven't been a ton of cases of kickboxers in trouble for PEDs, but there have always been rumors and accusations.

Remy Bonjasky this weekend added fuel to the fire by claiming that 80 - 90% of K-1 fighters were juicing and that he was never a part of that club. He cites wider jaws and added muscle mass as visual cues that someone is on steroids, which seems like a pretty broad statement. 

"I do not use and have never done so. I've always said that if I do not succeed in a normal way, I should quit [fighting.] I always want to win and if I can not win with eating normally then it stops." [source]
