The fan claims that former UFC champion Kevin Randleman reached out to him minutes before he was set to hang himself
Randleman, who sadly passed away in 2016, was credited with preventing a fan from ending his own life in a personal account uploaded to Reddit’s R/MMA:
I’ve pondered for a long time on how to tell this story; many people have seen it passing in the comment threads but I wanted to make a post about it because this might help people with depressing thoughts or suicide contemplating.
Around December 2014 I was in a relationship with someone who I cared very much, we ended up breaking up because I screwed up and cheated on her by sexting someone and admitted I was wrong. While we were broken up, I was starting to become my depressed by looking at her through instagram and twitter. (I haven’t had Facebook in about 2 years) Around the beginning of January, we tried to work on things but she wanted nothing to with me again because of my past mistake.
January 15th was a day I will never forget, it was the day I was truly going to end my life. I went and bought some rope, came back home and went to an area where I wouldn’t be found. I put it out on twitter that “this was it” and “I couldn’t take life anymore, good bye”. Not even 2 minutes go by, but I get a notification from twitter that someone messaged me, it was Kevin Randleman.
