* Rodeo meets (especially bull riding) have definitely had their share of deaths in the ring. Most prominent of these is the 1989 death of Lane Frost, who had his ribs broken and pushed into his heart from a collision with the horn from the bull he was riding.

* The ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' movies did this twice. In ''RockyIII'' as Clubber Lang is beating the crap out of Rocky, his trainer Mickey suffers a fatal heart attack. In ''RockyIV'', Ivan Drago pummels Apollo Creed so badly that he dies of his injuries; Drago's post-fight indifference to this ("If he dies, he dies") led to Rocky agreeing to fight him in Moscow.
