MMA Veteran Kyle Reyes Tragically Passes Away At 30

MMA veteran and a staple of the Xtreme Couture Gym, Kyle Reyes, has tragically passed away at the age of 30.

A GoFundMe launched last week indicated that Reyes had complications after having reconstructive surgery to repair a torn biceps in his left arm. He developed pneumonia which caused his right lung to collapse, his brain to swell, and forced Reyes to be placed in the ICU. As of the creation of the fundraiser Reyes' health had apparently been improving, he no longer had pneumonia and was in stable condition.
