Theodorou from Ontario competed 11 bouts in the UFC between 2014 and 2019. His rise to fame on a global scale began when he defeated Sheldon Westcott to win “TUF Nations.” Later, he defeated notable opponents including Trevor Smith, Sam Alvey, Eryk Anders, and Cezar Ferreira.

He made history when he competed in both Canada and the United States as the first professional athlete in North America to do so while holding a Therapeutic Use Exemption [TUE] for Medical Cannabis.

Theodorou utilized cannabis to alleviate the pain and discomfort from bilateral neuropathy, a nerve disorder brought on by an accident that left his hand fractured in four places and broken in two.

When word of his passing spread, MMA star Michael Chiesa paid tribute to the 34-year-old by posting a video to social media. Chiesa held up a blazer that the late UFC fighter donated to him when he needed a jacket for a press appearance to demonstrate how Theodorou was the kind of buddy who would “give you the shirt off his back.”
