40 Year Old Casey Suire passes away after scooter accident in Bali, Indonesia
We have some unfortunate news to report today. ONE FC fighter and professional trainer, Casey Suire passed away, due to injuries sustained in a scooter accident in Bali, Indonesia. According to a report on Coconuts Media, a young individual working in the area was said to have heard the accident and located the crashed Honda Vairo on the side of the road. Authorities were called to the scene, where they found Suire. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Casey was victorious in his last fight for ONE FC last August. He also worked as an MMA trainer in Bali, Indonesia. Casey Suire was a professional in the gas & oil field and it was that career which brought him to Indonesia, some seven years ago. Casey became interested in kickboxing and Martial Arts, and at age 33 began training for a career in fighting. He worked his way up with the aid of Bas Rutten instructional videos and signed a contract with ONE FC in 2013. He fought for the promotion five times, wining three of those contests.
Casey Suire was born in Louisiana and was an avid LSU Tiger fan his entire life.
One FC issued a statement from their President, Victor Cui. It read:
“Over the weekend I received an early-morning message, the kind of message that stops your whole hectic world.
Casey Suire was in a motorcycle accident in Bali, Indonesia, and had tragically passed away.
My first reaction was the information must be wrong. He’s only 40 years old. He’s a passionate teammate. He’s a talented and respected athlete with ONE. It’s not fair. It’s not right. I thought the information must be wrong, I prayed for it to be wrong, but sadly it wasn’t.
I first met Casey a little over 4 years ago at a press conference. He’d already started to build a reputation in Indonesia as an exciting athlete and he continued to prove that in his career with ONE. He was talented but not arrogant, he was a focused athlete but you could see in his interactions with his teammates that he had an equal passion for life. An incredible human being, I wish I’d had more time with Casey, a little more time to get to know him myself.
On behalf of ONE Championship, I extend our deepest condolences to Casey’s family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and loved ones during these hard times. I also want to thank all sports fans around the world for their concern, thoughts and prayers. At this point, we ask that everyone respect the Suire family’s privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother.”
Our thoughts and wishes go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.
