LGIO Scraps 155 Tourney and Gatineau Shows

By:

Top MMA News has heard from several sources today stating that the Let’s Get it On promotion has scrapped their 155 pound tournament and has cancelled all Gatineau shows after what appeared to be a successful debut last month. ¬†It is rumored that issues with the Quebec Athletic Commission may be at the root of the problem. ¬†Several camps have told Top MMA News that problems with matchups and the size of the LGIO cage could be the culprit.

It is rumored that LGIO decided to eliminate the Lightweight division and only hold the Welterweight tournament with all fights located at the River Cree Casino.

Tickets are still available for the Gatineau show on Ticketmaster despite these new rumors. (ED NOTE: Tickets are no long available on Ticketmaster 5/6/10)

Top MMA News has contacted President Elaine McCarthy and matchmaker Matt Stansell but there is no comment at this time.

This story will be updated as further news becomes available and the situation becomes clearer.
