MMA fighter Gilbert Aldana dead

By Art Shimko

-- The body of 29-year-old MMA fighter Gilbert Aldana was found at Lake Pleasant. Aldana, out on a boating trip Sunday with friends and family, dove into the water to retrieve a shirt and never resurfaced. Roland Sarria, Aldana's trainer, told"He went out with his best friend and his family," Sarria said. "His wife, his friend's wife and the kids. It was a weird thing that happened, because it happened as they were entering the lake. They were going like five miles-per-hour and that's when it happened. So they never got a chance to even get out in the lake. It happened in the early stage.

"It was really a freak accident."
. Aldana's last fights were in UFC 61 and Rage In The Cage 90. Our condolences to Aldana's family and friends.
