It’s hard to believe that it’s already been one year since MMA Weekly co-founder and famed sportscaster Ryan Bennett passed away on this day because of a tragic car accident. However Ryan’s spirit continues to live on today through the countless number of lives that he touched during his time with us.
MMA Weekly Radio will have a special two-hour tribute show this evening started at 8 PM EST. Bennett’s co-host Frank Trigg will join Damon Martin and Jeff Cain as several fighters and friends will call in to share their favorite stories and memories of Ryan.
As always we want to remind you about the Ryan Bennett Memorial Fund where you can make a donation to help support Ryan’s wife and kids.
Also earlier today Soyo Electronics announced a new line of TV’s sponsored by former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski. Half of the money generated from the sales will be donated to the Ryan Bennett Memorial Fund by Arlovski himself.
Everyone here at MMA on Tap would like to send our best wishes to the Bennett family. We would also like to let Ryan know that we miss him and wish he would see how much the sport has grown in the last year that has passed.
