Sam Stout and his family are grieving following the death of his month-old daughter, Sydney Love Stout.

The UFC veteran revealed on Instagram last week that his daughter passed away in her sleep. A GoFundMe page has been set up in memory of Sydney to help the Stouts with day-to-day costs, counseling and other expenses. The initial goal was $5,000, but as of Tuesday night, more than $28,000 had been raised. Sam and his wife, Jessie Stout, have a 6-year-old daughter named Logan.

“Most of you already know that we lost Sydney Love Stout in her sleep the night before last. We tried to save her but it was too late,” Stout wrote. “The last month with her was the best month of my life, and this is now the worst time of my life... it still doesn’t feel real.

“Jessie and I haven’t let go of each other since yesterday and we will continue to hold on to one other for the rest of our lives. We will be eternally scared from this. We appreciate all the love we have already received from the people around us. We love you Sydney bean.”

Now 36 years old, Stout competed 20 times for the UFC. He retired from the sport shortly after a loss to Frankie Perez at UFC Fight Night 74 on Aug. 23, 2015. The Canadian lightweight finished his career with a 20-12-1 record.
