“Without getting too much h into his medical condition, he’s got to just worry about being healthy first. He’s got to heal up and get healthy because there is so much more in life than just fighting. I want him to have a long healthy life and that’s the most important thing” Scott said in January. It’s sad Rumble is gone. May his soul rest in peace.
