Aaron Rajman was fatally shot during Monday night's apparent home invasion in the coastal city of Boca Raton.

Palm Beach County sheriff's office says a fight broke out after a group of suspects entered the 25-year-old featherweight's home.

Mr Rajman died from gunshot wounds. The assailants, whose motive is currently unknown, fled in a vehicle.

Dave Zalewski, a Miami fight promoter, told the Sun-Sentinel newspaper: "I'm just literally at a loss for words. Everyone I talked to is sickened.

"He was the most humble guy around, he never talked bad about people."

Neighbour Luciana Silva told local news station WPEC-TV that shortly before his death the victim spoke to her children to wish them a happy Independence Day.

Mr Rajman, an Orthodox Jew, was known for entering the arena wearing tzitzit and a yarmulke.

Ranked 26th in his class in Florida, he made his professional MMA debut three years ago and had a 2-2 record, according to MixedMartialArts.com.

As an amateur, Mr Rajman won eight fights and lost one.

"He was very strong in his faith, and he was a very good person," Rabbi Zalman Bukiet told local news station, WPTV.

"This was a special young man who had a heart of gold.

"It's a tragedy and extremely painful for them and painful for everybody that knew him."

A post on the MMA South Florida Facebook page read: "The world lost another warrior today. RIP Aaron Rajman. You will be missed."
