I'm not advocating doing things that crazy, but there have been no deaths in the ufc, the main mma league. Recently someone died in an amateur mma fight, but it was the result of no saftey measures and inadequate medical personnel and training. Fighting is not all that dangerous when it has rules, proper preparation and good officiating.
Some things are stupid. I won't do many life threatening things, and when I do, I am extremely careful. There is a difference between taking risks and being stupid. If you are going to do something that will endanger your life, you need to take every precaution to keep safe and not get hurt. Some get cocky, and die. I heard about an incredible rock climber who would free climb without ropes up insane cliffs by himself, but now he is dead because he was "too good to mess up".
