Aaron Rajman, an MMA fighter and member of American Top Team, was shot and killed late Monday night at a home in Boca Raton, Fla., the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office told Sun-Sentinel.com.
Detectives said Rajman, 25, was killed during an argument with several men when they entered the home and fired at least one shot at him. The men drove away after the encounter. The sheriff’s office said it has no motive for the fatal shooting and is treating it as a homicide investigation.
Dave Zalewski, a friend and fight promoter in Miami, told Sun-Sentinel.com Rajman had been training at ATT since he was 16 years old, adding that his teammates were in shock. UFC fighter Tecia Torres, who competes this Friday at The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale, knew Rajman and shared a tribute on Instagram.
R.I.P @aaronrajman A beautiful soul was taken too soon. Today I have a heavy heart with the passing of my friend. I remember when Aaron went out to NC with me and was my only corner at the end of my amateur career. Shortly after I fought on one of his own mma shows and become the #1 amateur fighter at 115. Thank you Aaron for sharing those special moments. I hope this weekend to make you smile and get the W for you. Miss you bud.
Rajman, who made his professional MMA debut in April 2014, had a 2-2 record. He was 8-1 as an amateur prior to that.
The MMA South Florida Facebook page posted a tribute in his honor.
