Gilbert Aldana’s body found


Gilbert Aldana (aka El Peligroso) was signed by the UFC when he was 5-0.  He lost to Cheick Kongo and Paul Buentello, but was able to beat Rich Beecroft in his last fight at the Rage in the Cage event before dying.

Gilbert Aldana drowned in early March while trying to reach for a shirt that had fallen off of
the boat he was on.  His friend on that same boat tried to rescue him, but his attempt
was unsuccessful.  His body was just found this weekend and it is being studied by medical examiners to confirm his identity and the cause of his death.

It was a tragic loss for the 29-year old as he leaves his wife and two sons behind, but he will be remembered by all UFC fans as a true MMA warrior.
