MMA on Tap has learned that authorities in Arizona have recovered the body of Gilbert Aldana from Lake Pleasant.
A boater spotted the body floating in the water and notified the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department who sent divers out to recover it. The body has been taken to the county Medical Examiner’s Office to confirm the identity and make a final determination on the cause of death.
Last March the MMA world lost Aldana when he was involved in a tragic boating accident. Aldana drowned while trying to retrieve a shirt that had fallen off of the boat. A friend on the boat attempted to rescue him but his attempts were unsuccessful.
Everyone at MMA on Tap would like to send their condolences to the friends and family of Gilbert Aldana…
