Has anyone died in UFC?

No fighter has ever died while fighting in the octagon during a UFC event. Evan Tanner, however, did pass away while camping in the desert in 2008. Tanner was a former UFC middleweight champion. For the rest of the sport of mixed-martial arts, I am not sure of any fatalities.

How many UFC fighters have died because of or just after a fight?

I don't believe any UFC fighter has ever died. And out of all Mixed-Martial Artists, 3 have died from injuries suffered in regulated professional US MMA fights. October 20, 2007 - Sam Vasquez, 35 died in a "Renegades Extreme Fighting" bout in Houston, TX. In the third round the fight ended by technical knockout. He lost consciousness shortly thereafter and was taken to Saint Joseph Medical Center's Critical Care Unit. Vasquez then suffered a blood clot; fluid entered his brain and he had a stroke and slipped into a coma for 42 days until he died. Vasquez's death was officially ruled as a death due to complications of blunt trauma of the head with a subdural hemorrhage. June 26, 2010 - Michael Kirkham, 30 died in the "Confrontation at the Convocation Center" event in Aiken County, SC. from brain injuries suffered in his professional MMA debut. The 30-year-old Kirkham died from bleeding in the brain, collapsing after Saturday night's fight and was rushed to Aiken Regional Medical Center where he never regained consciousness. This was Michael Kirkham's first pro MMA fighter, but not his first fight, he had six amateur MMA bouts before turning professional. ====Answer Update==== August 11, 2012 - Tyrone Mimms in a bout in South Carolina died from of an unknown cause. He came out strong in the first round and he was so dominating that the referee considered ending the fight. However, Mimms tired out in the second round, and the referee stopped the fight. Mimms smiled, spoke coherently, and told a ringside doctor he was ok, and that he needed rest. With some assistance, he walked to the locker room, where he removed his gloves and drank some water. Within a few minutes, Mimms began breathing heavily, he became incoherent, and became unconscious. He never regained consciousness. The autopsy was inconclusive.
