An amateur MMA fighter died after a fight in Louisville this weekend.

Donshay White collapsed during the Hardrock MMA 90 in Kentucky, where he lost the fight against Ricky Muse after he was stopped in the second round. He was unresponsive immediately after the stoppage and required medical attention.

The 37-year-old failed to protect himself after a number of heavy blows as referee Gary Copeland stopped the fight two minutes and 22 second into the second round. The fighter received CPR and was transported via ambulance to KentuckyOne Health Sts.

He made his own way backstage but "collapsed and became unresponsive", according to martial arts news-site Bluegrass MMA. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital, where he passed away.

The cause of death is unknown.

The last time White stepped into the ring was in November of 2015 when he knocked out Joe Johnson Jr in the first round of the Hardrock MMA 76.
