Joe Lewis, a legend in the Martial Arts, passed away 8/31/12.

From Wiki :

In July 2011, he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Doctors told him that if he did nothing, he’d have six to eight weeks to live. On July 18, surgeons removed the tumor. “He had the best doctors, and they think they did a good job of getting it all out,” said Dennis Nackord, Lewis’ senior black belt.

Lewis died one year and forty-five days later, on the morning of August 31, 2012.

Voted as the greatest karate fighter all-time, he was a student of Bruce Lee's briefly. Truly a legend.

My sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and students. May he and Bruce be united and discussing the martial arts.

Here are some highlights from his fights:

And here is his fight vs Bill "Superfoot" Wallace, both in their 40's:
