Ramon "Diamond" Dekkers has passed

Not sure how many people on here exactly are very familiar with Muay Thai, but Ramon Dekkers passed away this morning at age 43.

He was a pioneer in the sport, one of the first truly successful Dutch fighters to compete in Thailand. He was also the first foreign fighter to be awarded "Fighter of the Year", and was also known as the Turbine from Hell.

Without pioneers such as him, our sport would not be where it is today.

Yeah - I saw that in FB when Bas Rutten posted about it.
So young - shocking.
