In an unfortunate bit of news, the younger brother of UFC commentator Kenny Florian has passed away at the age of 33.

Kirk Andrew Florian had gone missing on Saturday and Kenny took to Twitter on Monday to ask if anyone had information about his brother’s whereabouts and suggested they contact the Dover Police Department in Delaware. He later deleted the message.

Apparently, Kirk passed away on Sunday as Kenny confirmed his passing on Instagram.

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

There has been no further information regarding the circumstances surrounding Kirk’s death released by the Dover police as of press time.

Kenny Florian is currently a commentator for the UFC but had an impressive career fighting in the UFC. He was a finalist in the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter and unsuccessfully challenged for the UFC featherweight and lightweight championships. He retired from fighting in 2011 and took a position as a commentator with the UFC.

Kirk Florian looked to walk in his older brother’s footsteps and tried his hand at mixed martial arts. According to MixedMartialArts.com, he amassed a 3-0 amateur record and had his last fight in 2013.
