    Some may think this isn't relevant to this forum, but it is my understanding that Irwin trained in MMA under Greg Jackson (of Jardine and Diego fame). Some people here also don't visit the regular forum so I'm making this thread as a tribute.

    And here is my favourite tribute, some people might find it a bit cheesy but I think it's somewhat uplifting in the time of his passing, please don't be offended

    He was from my area he was well known in the MMA community a few fighters work security at his Zoo.

    I have met him a few times and he actually shot one of his documentarys on a property we had the one with the fierce snakes.

    He made a living doing what he loved doing and had a positive outlook on everything and enthusiasm that was contagious.

    "Crikey! I need to work on my ground game!'

    But anyways, I really didn't know he was into MMA.
