    Very sad news, thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Just goes to show that you really need to think before you do something that could endanger yours and other people’s lives.

    I just heard about this. I send my sincere condolences :'(

    On the subject of video blogs, they really are the most useful way of connecting with people. So best wishes for them 🙂

    Like his antics, persona, character or not … the guy was instrumental in many fighters careers and was an excessive promoter of the sport of MMA. He will be truly missed in many aspects. Never knew him, but my thoughts go out to all who did and especially his family, friends, and business partners.

    It’s a sad day for the world of MMA as we lost someone who helped create the image of the UFC and MMA. There is nothing I can type or say that will make anyone feel better. All I can say is that Charles started by selling Tapout shirts out of his trunk to dying in a Ferrari. Let that be a symbol of what hard work and passion can amount to in life.

    Jeff you are a class act and I know you and the guys at Tapout, not just Charles were close. I called Brian to make sure you were doing alright.

    I wish everyone my deepest sympathy and hope I can everyone remembers that Charles is to MMA what Nike is to Basketball and Adidas is to Soccer.
