Charles Sadly, Charles Lewis Jr, better known to mixed martial arts fans as “Mask”, was reportedly killed in a car accident early this morning in Newport Beach, California. Lewis founded the popular “Tapout” clothing line in 1997 and eventually turned it into a multi-million dollar company.

We feel TapouT was instrumental in bringing MMA into the mainstream market where we see it today, and owe a lot to the TapouT Team. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, close friends and MMA fans throughout the world who today mourn the loss of a true inspiration.

The official statement by TapouT: 

"DEAREST FRIENDS AND FAMILY
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we must regretfully confirm the passing of our beloved friend, brother and co-founder Charles "Mask" Lewis following a car accident that occurred last night. We are currently in the process of setting up a memorial service in his honor and will release more details as they become available.

Many thanks to all for the outpouring of blessings and well-wishes during this incredibly difficult time
."
