Former UFC light-heavyweight title contender Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson has passed away after battling an undisclosed illness. He was 38.

News of Johnson’s death broke online Sunday afternoon, although it is not clear when he died.

“Horrible news: Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson passed away today. He was 38 years old,” journalist Ariel Helwani tweeted. “Johnson had been battling an illness for quite some time. One of the hardest hitters and most talented fighters in MMA history. Gone way too soon. May he rest in peace. May he rest in peace.”

RIP Rumble
You were every entertaining

Something very bad must have happened to his body.

His passing isn't surprising after seeing his skinny body in some recent images after being 250ish of muscle a couple years ago...looked like he was down to 170-180 or so in a somewhat recent photo

This was his last Instagram post, obviously leads to more questions than answers

Supposedly non hodgkins lymphoma is supposed to be easier to treat but it killed andy whitfield too. His documentary "be here now' shows him treating it till his death.

Tragic. RIP big guy.
Really sad.
I'm a baby when it comes to death, It always hits me hard. I've had a number of patients die on me in the past 18 years and it gets to me even to this day. Life is so fragile.
