Tragedy in the world of mixed martial arts. Tinguaro Suárez La Ó, a 29-year-old MMA fighter, has drowned in Los Pilones in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The young man jumped into the water to retrieve some diving goggles and fins when the current dragged him through the sea.

It happened on Thursday, but it was not until Friday when members of the GEAS of the Civil Guard recovered his body.

It was about ten meters deep, approximately 200 meters from the place where it disappeared.

Tinguaro had been practicing this type of contact sports since 2017.

The last fight he played was on June 4, in an event held at the Juan Beltrán de Cruz de Piedra and organized by Madness Fighting Championship.
