    A tragic car accident claimed the life of our dear friend and founder of MMAWeekly on Wednesday 5/31/2006 while traveling with his family. While driving to St. George, UT the tire blew out on his car, causing the vehicle to roll. Ryan was killed instantly.

    Ryan's wife, Tonya, is still in surgery and two of his children are still in the hospital, while his two youngest have checked out fine.

    Our prayers and blessings are with the Bennett family at this terrible hour in their lives. This is a great loss to the MMA community. And, the loss of a great friend to many. Please keep Ryan's family in your prayers.

    There has also been a fund set up by MMAWeekly to help support his family.
