Roy Allison Jnr sadly passed away yesterday. Really young guy, horrendous time for his family. All my thoughts are with them, may he rest in peace.

Always sad to see someone so young pass away.

Didn't know him well but spoke to him once or twice at a couple of shows in the North East and by all accounts he seemed like a great guy, RIP.

Didn't know him personally, but always tragic when someone passes before they're even in the prime of life. RIP!

In your first post its best not to ask question right now.

He has team mates and friends on the forum.

Shocking news to lose someone so young and in his prime.
I didn't know Roy personally, but I had the great honour of refereeing his last fight at Fight UK 6 and he showed that he was a great talent.
He will be sadly missed and my thoughts are with his family at this this time.

I don't know him, but the circumstances are terrible, death is a traggic event, especially when in your youth. I think BAMMA should hold a minute silence for him on Saturday.
RIP

A minute at bamma would be nice! I was recently at a rugby game where they did applause rather than silence- I think I preferred that!

Minutes applause is a good idea.

Hate hearing stuff like this.

R.I.P Roy

I met Roy when we shared a dressing room on Ultimate Challenge, he left a really good impression on me, a very nice friendly and warm guy, so sad hearing this, RIP Roy.

RIP Roy Allison Jnr.

I got told a couple of days ago, but still struggle to come to terms with it. You was defo one of the good guys in MMA.

Hope people take time to learn about you and lead by your example.

You will be missed my friend.

His local paper has an article about his passing online.

Lots of people really shocked and no-one with a bad word to say about the guy.

A minute's applause is a great idea.

BAMMA have scored some points with me for that.

FIGHT UK shows will never be the same without Roy to party with afterwards.

Watched the show, some decent performances, bit bored of the same fighters though, shame they didn't put the tribute on the show last night as stated.
