In September, UFC fighter Damon Jackson’s brother died suddenly, just two weeks after getting vaccinated against Covid-19. Since losing his brother, Bradley “Action” Jackson, Damon has been searching for answers. In a recent interview, Damon suggested that the vaccine may have been a factor in his brother’s untimely death.

After losing his brother, Damon switched his nickname from “The Leech” to “Action” as a tribute to his brother. He explained this in his interview with Sherdog, a mixed martial arts news outlet.

“Right before my last fight, my brother passed away, and that was his football nickname. So, they would call him Bradley “Action” Jackson, so they would just call him that on the intercom every time he would make a tackle and stuff,” said Damon. “I just thought it’d be cool to keep him around with the nickname. So… I made the switch, and it sounds good, I like it. I’m going to stick with it from here on out.”

The interviewer, Tudor Leone, asked Damon what happened to his brother. Damon said, “We still really don’t know. He wasn’t answering calls and texts, so we went over to check on him and we found him in his house. It didn’t make a lot of sense yet.”

“We did try to figure out, like, if it could have been the vaccine, it could have been medication, it could have been a handful of things. There’s no present, like, apparent reason why it happened. It just kinda was out of nowhere. He was 37 years old, so just doesn’t make a lot of sense,” Damon continued. “He was vaccinated just shortly before that, about two weeks before, but I don’t want to get into conspiracies and all that kind of stuff.”


“Nothing adds up, so we’re trying to figure out some answers, but we don’t have any answers so far,” he concluded.

Although it seems like Damon is truly concerned that the vaccine could have caused his brother’s death, he is still hesitant to approach that theory as anything other than a “conspiracy theory” for fear of being torn apart for suggesting a potential connection.
