A former UFC fighter was killed Sunday in a hit-and-run incident following an altercation with another driver in Edmonton, Canada, according to multiple reports.
Ryan Jimmo, 34, was rushed to an area hospital, where he was declared dead, the CBC reports.
Police described an altercation between two drivers in a parking lot around 2:15 a.m. They said the victim was walking away from a vehicle when the suspect accelerated, striking the victim with the car before fleeing the scene.
Authorities said they were seeking "a dark-colored, older model pickup truck with an extended cab, and customized with a lift kit, oversized tires and clear tail lights."
Sharon Jimmo remembered her nephew as "happy-go-lucky" and said that he was "friends with everyone."
"He was a people person, he loved everyone. He was so kind," she told the CBC. "He was a fighter but personally he was a great guy."
Known as "The Big Deal," Jimmo fought in the light heavyweight division. He shares the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, ending a fight in seven seconds, according to the BBC. He last fought with the UFC in 2015.
Dana White, the current president of the UFC, shared his condolences on Twitter.
