MMA star dies in Bali after crashing scooter

Irish MMA fighter Keith Thomas Coughlan has died in a crash in North Kuta, Bali. The 26-year-old fighter, who lived in Fremantle, Australia, was found dead after his scooter overturned while crossing a ditch. Passers-by discovered him around 5 a.m. Sunday. An ambulance was immediately called, but the medics were unable to save the Irishman.

The 26-year-old is an Irish citizen who had been living in Fremantle, Western Australia and was over in Bali training.

But over the weekend, a local resident stumbled up Coughlan on a North Kuta road at around 5am on Sunday morning.

Reports suggest he was unresponsive and trapped under the wreckage of his scooter.

Keith Coughlan won his first fight in MMA just a month ago when he participated in Kangoo Fight Night 23. The British Foreign Office confirmed the Irishman's identity.
