Top MMA News was informed today that Vince Moritz passed away on Thursday, January 12 due to undetermined causes. Vince, a Fort McMurray native who was currently living in Fort Saskatchewan, was 31 at the time of his death.

Mortiz trained at Bowman’s Taekwondo in Fort McMurray and fought once on the Prestige Fighting Championship 3 card in 2011.  His younger brother Travis also fought and trained in Fort McMurray.

His coach, Sandy Bowman had a heart to heart chat with Vince around Christmas.   “Vince was a good guy.  His dream was to earn the respect of the guys in the gym and train really hard…I believe he was going to do it,” said Sandy.

Top MMA News would like to express our condolences to the Moritz family and all of Vince’s friends and training partners in Fort McMurray.
