In a sad twist of events, UFC commentator has just come out to announce the death of his younger brother Kirk Andrew Florian.

Kenny had made the announcement on the social media network Instagram.

Even more heart breaking is the fact that the commentator had just announced that his younger brother Kirk was missing a day earlier.

He made the post on Tuesday night saying Kirk had passed away on Sunday. He was 33 years old. In the sad post, Kenny wrote:

“Always loving. Always loved. Always my little brother Kiki, Kirk Andrew Florian 6/22/83-9/11/16. Thank you all for sharing his picture information. Go tell your loved ones that you love them.”

Kenny, who is a retired fighter and now a commentator for the sport, offered no other details about his brother’s demise, and all efforts by reporters to reach him proved abortive.

Just one day earlier on Monday, he had put up a post announcing that his brother was missing. He asked Twitter users and the public that anyone with useful information about his brother’s whereabouts should call the Dover police department in Delaware. He said that Kirk had been missing for two days. However, he deleted the message later on.

In an interview, a police officer at the Dover police department said he was familiar with Kirk but could not speak much as he did not know what information the department was giving out and directed all questions on the subject matter to a spokesperson.

Kirk himself had a short time in the ring as an MMA fighter, the database of the Association of boxing commissions shows that he fought three times in the amateur category. After his first appearance in the ring back in 2008, Kenny wrote:

“My brother Kirk competed in his first MMA fight a few weeks ago; he fought a tough opponent and in the Florian tradition fought up a weight class or two. He won the fight by rear naked choke in the first round. Great job Kirk, you made us proud.”

No doubt, Kirk Florian will be missed.
