    Mississauga's mixed martial arts community is mourning the loss of one of its up-and-coming fighters, who friends said died "a hero" last Saturday when he tried to stop a robbery.
    Kearn Nedd, 28, of Brampton, who spent his entire fighting career training in Mississauga, was gunned down when two intruders burst into an afternoon poker tournament at The Rozz Restaurant and Entertainment Complex, near Dixie Rd. and Steeles Ave. W. in Brampton.
    It's believed the culprits were armed with guns and entered the establishment looking for cash before Nedd, working as a security guard at the event, tried to stop them.

    That's quite sad.
