We are sad to report that Adrain “Lionheart” McCallum has passed away at the age of 36.
The news broke via the official ICW Twitter account. They are asking everyone to respect his family’s privacy at this time. There is no official word on his cause of death and we will refrain on speculating until word gets out from authorities or from his family.
