MMA flyweight veteran Katy Collins died at the age of 32 on Wednesday following complications from a brain aneurysm she suffered last week. The Bellator veteran, who was 7-5 in professional MMA, was taken to hospital in Branson, Missouri, on Friday after the brain aneurysm caused a stroke and seizures. “Red Dragon” last competed for Legacy Fighting Alliance in June 2018. Her coach JT Tilley paid tribute to her in an emotional post on Facebook. “The fight is over. You never stopped fighting and we never gave up on you. Just wasn’t in the cards,” Tilley wrote. “I’ve always been so proud of you Kate. We did it. I was honoured to be able to live your dream with you. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I will miss you more than the world will ever know.” Collins, who is survived by her two sons, started as an amateur in August 2011 before turning professional in May 2015. She went 2-1 in US organisation Bellator, beating Michelle Royer and Bruna Vargas, and losing to Emily Ducote. Collins’ sister, Kimberley, wrote in a Facebook post last weekend that an initial medical procedure did not work.
