For the second straight “Prime” event, ONE Championship has been forced to strip a champion on the scale.

Less than a month after John Lineker coughed up his bantamweight crown, ONE welterweight champion Kiamrian Abbasov said goodbye to his welterweight title at the ONE on Prime 4 weigh ins, failing his hydration test on his first attempt, then coming in heavy on his second.

As a result, opponent and reigning lightweight champion Christian Lee will remain eligible to capture the welterweight strap in their much-ballyhooed “champ champ” main event on Friday night at Singapore Indoor Stadium, but Abbasov will not, regardless of his fight night performance.

Jason David Frank, best known as the green Power Ranger on the original North American run of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, has died at the age of 49 years old. According to TMZ, the cause of death was suicide.

A statement from his agent read “Please respect the privacy of his family and friends during this horrible time as we come to terms with the loss of such a wonderful human being. He loved his family, friends and fans very much. He will truly be missed.”

Reports started swirling on the internet this Sunday morning, which were then confirmed by a message from his trainer and friend Mike Bronzoulis.

“RIP my brother from another mother Jason David Frank,” Bronzoulis wrote. “I’m still in shock. I’m feeling terrible, he called left me a message and I took to long. Jason was a good friend to me and I will miss him. Love n prayers for his wife Tammie and their kids, I prey that God gets y’all through this difficult time.”
