'TUF 10's' Zak Jensen Facing Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The Ultimate Fighter 10 heavyweight Zak Jensen is facing a wrongful death lawsuit involving the death of a Minnesota college student on a spring break trip in March to Mexico.

Minnesota's Stillwater Gazette is reporting that the family of the student, alleging that the student died during an altercation with Jensen, filed a suit Thursday against Jensen, Jason Jones and company Sterling Systems.

Jensen was on the trip as a bodyguard for Jason Jones' daughter Ashley, a friend of the college student. Ashley Jones and Jensen were allegedly in the same room with the student during the death of the student in a bathroom at the Sheraton Hotel in Puerto Vallarta.

According to KSTP TV, the lawsuit states that Jensen told a hotel worker that he acted in self defense, and that an autopsy revealed that the student had wounds on his face and choked on his own vomit.

The 26-year-old Jensen (7-3), selected on the show as a member of Team Rampage, succumbed to a triangle choke by Darrill Shoonover during week six of The Ultimate Fighter 10.
