While the final results of Rene Ayangma’s recent autopsy will not be known for a couple of months, Prince Edward Island’s chief coroner suggests that the 20-year old Canadian mixed martial artist may have likely died from natural causes.
The news comes from a report in the Charlottetown Guardian over the weekend, where Dr. Charles Trainor suggested that Ayangma potentially died a natural death.
The Stratford native suddenly passed away late last Tuesday night after collapsing during a training session in preparation for his second professional fight.
Ayangma was training at Largo Fitness Centre when he fell down to a knee shortly after completing a light sparring session. He then reportedly fell forward unconscious and stopped breathing. After gym members came to his aid and attempted CPR, Ayangma was rushed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he was pronounced dead only minutes after arriving.
A biology student at the University of Prince Edward Island, Ayangma made his professional debut in December, submitting Chris Doucet with a rear naked choke at a King Of The Cage event in Moncton, New Brunswick. His next fight was slated to take place on March 15th at an undisclosed event in Halifax
