Funeral Costs for Jahreau Shepherd

In loving memory of Jahreau 'Nightmare' Shepherd we want to raise enough funds to give the champion the send off he deserves! Alpha Talent Management (ATM) are raising money for funeral costs and to support his family during this time. We are reaching out to the UK MMA fraternity to come together and show some love for Jay, who has been such an integral part of this industry. If he has ever fought on your show, supported you, been in your corner, trained you, inspired you or simply blessed you with his infectious energy please show some love and support and donate today no matter how big or small.  Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends. RIP Jay, we love you, will always miss you and will keep your memory alive forever.
