Former UFC fighter Geane Herrera died following a motorcycle accident in Tampa, Fla. He was 33.

His family confirmed his passing Monday with a GoFundMe account set up to help with funeral expenses.

“Our family is devastated by the tragic loss of our beloved Geane Carlos Herrera known in the professional fighting world as ‘La Pulga’, whose life was cut way too short at only 33 years-old,” Herrera’s family wrote. “Geane leaves behind a 16 year-old son, his 3-month pregnant girlfriend, mother, father, sisters, a brother and a family that loves him and will deeply miss him.”

Herrera, who was born in California and raised in Colombia, began his career in mixed martial arts in 2011.

A flyweight, he fought 13 times (including four times in UFC) over seven years and recorded 10 victories.

He later participated in bare-knuckle boxing with BKFC.
