Josh Samman’s mother: No heroin in Josh’s system whatsoever, still in coma


We still do not have much of an update on the condition of UFC fighter Josh Samman who has been in a South Florida hospital since last week.  We do however have an update from his mother about some of the speculation that has been floating around the internet.

Local Florida MMA reporter Christopher Rothstein provided Fox Sports with a statement from Samman’s mother:

“Josh is still in a coma, and more tests are being done. That is the latest update on my son’s condition. And in spite of speculation, there was no heroin found in Josh’s system whatsoever. No matter what people are posting on social media.

“The reason I am making this statement is, because Josh touched so many lives, and loved inspiring others, especially young people. I don’t want them to lose faith in him, and whatever he brought out in them, because of the lies. He would want them to “never give up.”

Funeral arrangements for Troy Kirkinburg whose body was found alongside Samman have been made for Thursday evening.  Samman and Kirkingburg were found by a friend, Hunter Sundberg, who called 911 and administered CPR until police arrived.

The entire staff at MyMMANews.com wishes Josh Samman a speedy recovery.
