Mauricio Zingano, the husband of UFC bantamweight #1 contender Cat Zingano, was found dead in his Colorado home late monday night.
Dan Pruett , Jefferson County Chief Deputy Coroner, spoke with MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday about Zingano’s death:
“Mr. Zingano was pronounced dead on Jan. 13 at his home,” said Pruett. “He was pronounced at 8:31 p.m.”
When asked whether Mauricio took his own life Pruett had this to say:
“the cause and manner of death are pending”
There are rumors circulating that the Zinganos were having marital issues, which could have led to Zingano’s fragile state of mind. In situations such as these we send our regards to Mauricio’s wife Cat and their son.
