Yesterday, January 2, 2017, we lost an American warrior and a creator of so much content that we love to brain cancer. Richard Machowicz was a Navy SEAL for ten years before becoming the host of the Discovery Channel's Future Weapons and Spike TV's Deadliest Warrior.
Mack was a SEAL for ten years, having served on Teams ONE and TWO. He had been a Naval Special Warfare Scout/Sniper and the Leading Petty Officer of Land, Mountain and Arctic Warefare. He was an accomplished martial artist with over 20 years of training and black belts in multiple styles, which led to his certification as an instructor in the Naval Special Warfare Combat Fighting Instructor Course (he taught the teachers who teach the baddest of the badasses).
Our condolences go out to his friends, family and brothers, and he will always have our gratitude for his service as a warrior and for so much great content as an entertainer and host.
