Rest in Peace Gene Fabrikant

MMA Journalist has just learned that sambo expert Gene Fabrikant passed away this morning.  It was sudden, and the result of an unknown heart issue.  Fabrikant coached a few fighters here and there, and also ran a few shows out in Brooklyn, including the recent Paul Rosner memorial event as well as the infamous International Fight Night underground shows.  He will be missed.

Gene was simply one of the most experienced yet unknown leaders in the world of unarmed combat. If you had the ability to train with him, I can tell you that in the late 90's he was still throwing us young guys around in the Gym. RIP Gene!
