Former Bellator MMA and Legacy Fighting Championship fighter Ivan Cole reportedly shot and killed himself in a game of Russian Roulette.
A post on American news agency CBS DFW's Facebook page on Saturday night claimed that the 25-year-old was 'playing roulette with a gun in a Dallas apartment'.
The Dallas Police Department later confirmed that he was found dead in the apartment after officers responded to a shooting at approximately 7.31 am.
While no further details are available, an autopsy is being carried out, reports The Lad Bible.
Hailing from New Orleans, Cole won two and lost three of his MMA fights during a career that started in 2012.
His last fight was against George Pacarariu on March 27, 2015, when he lost via submission in the first round.
