According to multiple reports, Mauricio Zingano, the coach and husband of UFC bantamweight Cat Zingano, has passed away at the age of 37.

The third degree, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt reportedly died in his Westminster, Colorado home Monday night. An autopsy will be performed on Zingano Wednesday.

Although no official statement regarding his death has been released yet by the Zingano camp, Cat has posted on her Facebook account: “I will always love you Mauricio”.

Cat Zingano is not currently scheduled for a fight, as the veteran continues to recover from knee surgery she underwent last year.

Full Contact Fighter would like to extend its deepest sympathies to Zingano’s family, friends and relatives.
