I read that he died in his sleep and was purple when found in the morning. I'm not going to speculate what that could've been for cause of death.

Respects to his family and friends.

Shame. A guy who was well liked, known for making good fighters great, and a huge piece of why Dana White and others refer to Canada as the 'Mecca of MMA'. RIP.
