Background

The Bellevue Chief of Police and the mayor presented Marunde with an outstanding citizen award for his actions.

Marunde was encouraged to try MMA by his older brother Jesse Marunde who placed second in the 2005 World's Strongest Man contest in China.[ citation needed ] Marunde was devastated by his brother's death in 2007 but has continued fighting.
