Cult allegations controversy
Following an incident between three of his students on 1 Jan 2013 Irvin received a lot of negative publicity in the mixed martial arts press. Several of his best students decided to leave, and Irvin disbanded his affiliate program, citing the "lynch mob" mentality of his attackers. A 5 Dec 2013 article on the controversy with accounts from former Irvin associates and students claimed Irvin's students were training in a cult like environment.
