Osu! I was in the midst of creating a profile for this former Sabaki Challege Heavyweight Champ.. it's about a month overdue, but I had discovered over at the Sherdog forums that Tomasz Kucharzewski died at age 39 in his home of Windsor, ON. Now I tried to search the forums to see if someone else had created a thread on this but I did not find any and I'm sorry if this had been posted up already.
