Unfortunately in the history of Georgia Fighters we’ve now had to report on three previous deaths of our own (John Grantham, Adrienne Simmons and Vernon Forrest). Now we’ve got the awful task of reporting that Sherri Thompson has passed away.
Sherri has been an integral part of the MMA, boxing and kickboxing community in Atlanta for the past 10 plus years. She has been a fighter, trainer, gym manager and has helped nearly every gym over the years. She has helped groom many of today’s top fighters into what they currently are.
While the details are not known at this point, please leave your comments below in respect to Sherri and her family. All that we know as of now is that she was found in her apartment this morning passed away.
In the past the comments for John Grantham, Adrienne Simmons and Vernon Forrest reached into the hundreds on GeorgiaFighters.com and the families and friends told us they printed the pages off to remember them by. We’re hoping the Georgia community can do such yet again.
