It has been reported by mmaweekly.com that Kevin Randleman has been admitted to the hospital. Internet forums were buzzing today with rumors of Randleman being hospitalized, and unfortunately those rumors have been confirmed. According to mmaweekly.com, Randleman’s friend and training partner confirmed that he was admitted to the hospital with severe kidney problems and even some degree of failure. It is still unclear at this point how extreme of a case it is or if he will make a full recovery and how long it will take. I suggest you read the mmaweekly.com article here.
Randleman has lost 5 of his last 6 fights(most were to top 5 fighters) and recently had a run in with Rampage in a club in Vegas. Life has dealt him a tough hand the past couple years. Randleman has had much success over his 11 year career however, with wins against Mirko Cro Cop, Murilo Rua, Pedro Rizzo, and Renato “Babalu” Sobral just to name a few.
I know Randleman has a never quit attitude and this will be no different. He takes challenges head on and full blast. He is and always will be a fighter. Those are the kind of values taught by mma. I wish Kevin a speedy recovery and he will be in our thoughts and prayers. Get well soon buddy.
