In what comes as terribly depressing news, it appears as though mixed martial arts has recently lost another one of it’s brothers as the just twenty-three year old Jeremy “Wild Thing” Ashley has reportedly passed away according to a report from F1 Management on The Underground.
Reportedly F1 Management was told that Ashley’s death was a suicide although details to the manner of his death are unavailable as of this time.
A close friend to Jeremy and fellow mixed martial artist, Tristan Yunker, had this to say:
Jeremy fought mostly in Indiana, and throughout the Midwest, and he was one of the more promising prospects from this area. At only 23 yrs old, Jeremy had a 16-6 professional record, and was currently riding an 8 fight win streak, and having gone 12-1 in his last 13. His most recent win coming over TUF/UFC vet Brian Geraghty. He wrestled at Purdue for a season, and I believe he recently recieved his purple belt in BJJ. To sum it up, Jeremy Ashley was a badass!
R.I.P. Jeremy, you will be missed.
5 Oz. collective thoughts and prayers go out to Ashley’s family and friends.
