    Dear Team Lloyd Irvin Affiliates:

    By now you've no doubt learned that Lloyd Irvin, Jr, was acquitted in 1990 of taking part in the gang rape of a 17 year old girl.

    Five men were convicted of raping the women and received sentences of up to 10 years.

    Lloyd Irvin was acquitted of rape because the jury believed his defense that he wanted to have sex with the women but only didn't because he couldn't obtain an erection.

    Some of those men convicted claimed that Lloyd Irvin did indeed have sex with the woman.

    If you believe Lloyd Irvin, then you have to believe that at best he wanted to participate in the gang rape of a 17 year old women and only didn't because he was impotent.

    Now Lloyd Irvin teaches rape prevention classes.

    And it's worth pointing out that two of his currents students are charged with raping a female fellow student on New Year's Eve.


    To the owners of Team Lloyd Irvin affiliates:

    Did you have prior knowledge that Lloyd Irvin, Jr, was acquitted of rape charges some 22 years ago?

    Now that you do know, will you still remain a Team Lloyd Irvin affiliate?

    To the Team Lloyd Irvin affiliates: Do you want google to return "Lloyd Irvin failed rapist" when a prospective student searchs for your school?

    Here is a list of schools affiliated with Lloyd Irvin, who claimed he didn't participate in the gang rape of a 17 year old women because he couldn't perform.

    Curious, why do you care so much to take the time and effort to do this? Do you even train?

    You didn't read my post, did you?

    As I've wrote in my post, I've trained at two Lloyd Irvin affiliates. Here's some validation. http://www.sherdog.net/forums/showthread.php?p=54738315#post54738315

    I won't train at another Lloyd Irvin affiliate because I now know Lloyd Irvin participated in a gang rape of an 17 year old girl some 22 years ago. (I can't say whether he penetrated the girl, but he was there and wanted to have intercourse with her.)

    If I were a gym owner, I wouldn't want my name or school linked to Lloyd Irvin.

    "Jeff Ruth of Nova MMA:
    I'm not sure if you even still own the gym. I never saw you there when I trained there, though Chau Bui was there occasionally. Whoever is running Nova MMA let Lloyd Irvin fire respected black belt instructor Noah Booth and replace him with a purple belt from Camp Springs. Your gym isn't well respected in the Northern Virginia BJJ scene. Now's the chance to turn it around. Will you cut ties with the would-be rapist Lloyd Irvin?"


    Ok...figured it out. At first I wondered why somebody would put in the time and effort to do all of this,but obviously you ALREADY had beef with Lloyd and using this as an opportunity to "get back".

    Not sure I agree with trying to defame people who know Lloyd Irvin.

    It's a little too much of a Witch Hunt.

    Lloyd Irvin and his two students are the ones who need to be getting heat right now. Not everyone who has ever know Lloyd.
    If it was me I'd cut my ties with him. But I don't think a Sherdog thread is necessary.

    Apparently, you haven't seen the other LI-related threads. You wouldn't need existing beef with the guy to support something like this.

    You know what, since you are out there putting names of business that happened to be affiliated

    the least you could do is signed your open letter with your real name.

    Holy s$%t... I had heard a rumor going around that he might have previously been charged with rape but I had no idea it was that bad. I don't really even know how to react but if I was affiliated with him I think I'd have to agree that it is time to bail.

    I did not not know about the previous incident involving Lloyd himself. Can anyone independently verify that?

    Frankly I find that far more disturbing than the current episode.

    I dislike Lloyd Irvin and he irritates me immensely but . . . really . . . all this over an alleged crime he didn't go through with and was acquitted of 22 years ago?

    Besides, from what I've read of the 1990 case it sounds more like a slutty girl got drunk, had a train run on her, regretted it in the morning and retroactively called "rape".
