Bruce Connal 1956-2018

He may not have been fighting in the Octagon or in front of the camera, but few had the impact Bruce Connal did on the UFC during his two decades as a producer for the promotion.

Sadly, Connal suddenly passed away this week. He was 61.

A producer of more than 300 live events, Connal was loved and respected by everyone who had the good fortune of crossing his path, and his innovative work set a high bar for those in television production.

The UFC family will miss Bruce, who is survived by his wife Karen and children Tyler, Carly and Trevor
