TUF Alum Josh Samman’s Girlfriend Passes Away

Tragedy struck Josh Samman close to the heart recently, as the veteran of The Ultimate Fighter lost his girlfriend to a car accident.

Samman, a semifinalist on the show, earned his initial UFC victory by defeating Kevin Casey earlier this year. He was scheduled to meet Uriah Hall last month, but was removed for undisclosed reasons.

“This week I lost the love of my life in a tragic accident,” Samman posted on Twitter. “Doing my best to pick up the pieces one day at a time.”

Samman’s girlfriend, Hailey, died in a car accident last Friday.
