Wife of Ian McCall, Shay McCall posted this on Instagram a few hours ago. They were very good friends with Shane so it appears to be real this time.

That sucks, hate to see a athlete go out early like that. Keeps his body in pristine condition and it doesn't matter in the end.

Such a young upstart...his career and life as a cultured gentleman were just getting started. 


He will be missed, a somber goodbye Mr. Rosario...and to all a goodnight.

I think during the main card this weekend the UFC should have a moment of silence for shane. Then on the big screen they should show a short video of him with his family, training with friends and some career highlight wins. This way people get to see a complete picture of who he was an not just a fighter, but a loving friend and family man. He at least deserves that much.
