That is horrible news. I know next to nothing about the guy, but I enjoyed the little bit I had seen of him on the show about his search for amatuer fighters.

Street racing in a Ferrari 360 at one in the morning, and putting his passenger (whom is apparently in pretty serious condition) in mortal danger in addition to himself. Stand-up guy.

this stuff is not my cup of tea but I watched a few times (I think it was on right after the TdF). He seemed like a nice guy. Pretty poor judgment at the end, I guess.

That sucks..he did alot for the sport, and was a pretty good business man to bring a company like that from nothing to what it is...bad judgment on the back end though...we've all made poor decisions sometime in our lives...some of us are just luckier enough to talk about than others...
