    Ryan should try and get the appeal of an audience outside of Alberta, that would be great for his career.

    Ford has tough decision.

    Make more fighting in Edmonton than he would in a UFC or Strikeforce prelim or take a chance that he would win several in a row and be a successful UFC fighter.

    I am guessing that he makes a lot more than ex-Edmonton UFCers like Valimaki and Hague especialy when you add sponsors and percent of tickets sold.

    if he goes to ufc and loses fights he will make less when he returns to local edm show.

    The reason he can train everyday is because of his sponsors, but I agree he would most likely be making less in the ufc or strikeforce. Then again if he had that experience being an ex-ufc fighter that could work as a draw.
    But being in the ufc is more than about how much you’ll
    get paid.

    Like the fact he says he only wants to fight top guys the only guy on his level so far was Healy and I know Ryan would do good in strikeforce or the ufc where there are no easy fights.can easy see him a top ten welterweight in two- three years I belive if he never left the Mfc he would already be in the show because I don’t belive the tfc did anything for him he’s the only reason they were around as long as they were keep ya head up Ryan good things will come your way!

    Ford is back in the MFC! Great move for them. Questionable move for Ford. I wanted to see him get exposure outside Alberta. Unless Brandon Manitoba is the first move for MFC outside Alberta, then I think he just sunk his career and will be limited to being a local hero. But hey… can make a good living that way.
