FOTN honors goto Bolduc and Papineau for their entertaining tilt. SOTN goes to Hybrid’s new Lightweight champ Chad Petepiece for his beautifully executed D’arce choke finish.

It’s always an enjoying affair at Hybrid as the small sized venue coupled with the excited fans really adds to the experience. Hybrid H8 will make it’s return to Gatineau March 5, 2011.

  2. KOTN goes to Rob Tracey? Do you even know MMA? So if I socker kick some guy in a ring and knock him out, it goes to me just that it wasn’t PrideFC rule?

  3. rawflmaoson says:

    KO of the night goes to a blatantly illegal maneuver too dangerous for amateur, and possibly pro MMA? Maybe the next KOTN will go to someone who brings a baseball bat into the ring and executes a beautiful overhand swing. KOTN… yet DQ of the night.

    @not harry balls:

    Nowhere does Don say KOTN goes to Rob Tracey. In fact, he says “This is a perfect example of why fighters should not be able to go back to amateur after turning pro.”

    KOTN would have been awarded to Tracey had it been a pro fight, as slams are deemed legal; furthermore, it was (arguably) the only KO of the night.

    Don knows more about MMA than anyone I know. Figure it out, buddy.

    @ Mark & Keith

    Let’s break this down syntactically.

    ” KOTN would have gone to Rob Tracey had this been pro MMA, but since this is amateur MMA he only gets the DQ loss. ”

    The point here is that to me, this looks like praise. Had ONLY this been Pro, this would of been a hell of a KO, yet its AMATEUR so sadly only a DQ loss! To even include a blatant disregard for the rules in the same sentence as KOTN isn’t right.

    Also, @ Mark, technically a referee stoppage constitutes as a (T)KO (see Jeff Andrews vs Wes Ranger). But I see what you mean when you say “Don knows a lot about MMA” because you obviously weren’t speaking about yourself.

  7. I don’t think it’s a very good example of a pro going back to amatuer. Him and Wes Ranger are still a B level amateur fighters, no disrespect to either.
    Rob’s been around for 6 fights, it’s not a rocket science and I bet everyone knows it’s illegal to slam somoene in amateur. I heard someone saying ref was telling Rob not to slam while he picked his opponent up, but he went for the kill anyways. He might of been in the zone and didn’t hear anything, (I’ve been in similar situations) or maybe he just got scared of triangle, who knows.

  8. I don ‘t know either of you personally, but neither of you are Don, so you can’t speak for him. What Don knows about MMA doesn’t translate to you guys by osmosis. Jus sayin

    ” I heard someone saying ref was telling Rob not to slam while he picked his opponent up, but he went for the kill anyways….”

    Same thing happened with Mike Riley vs Derek Dexter at H1. Triangle from Riley saw Dexter picking him up getting ready for the slam. Everyone was yelling at Derek to not slam, and I mean everyone, both corners, the ref, Mike Carrier was sitting right beside me and he was yelling so loud I thought he was going to give himself a stroke. Derek ended up putting Mike back down and losing a couple seconds later after Mike transitioned the choke into an armbar.

    Point of the story? If people are yelling, you should be able to hear them….Dexter did…

  13. John says:

    “This is a perfect example of why fighters should not be able to go back to amateur after turning pro.” By this logic then Hiltz should not have been there iether. Rob did not perform a malisious technique. In fact he used a very amatuer escape against a good triangle choke. A pro would be some one who would find a technical methode to escape, rather than brute streangth.

    “Hiltz seems to have dislocated his shoulders during the scramble the tap out seems to have come from his injury and not the RNC. TopMMAnews confirmed with Hiltz’s camp afterwards that it was in indeed a separated right shoulder that caused the tap.” From what I observed Hiltz kept fighting till the ref pulled them apart. Could you clearify this?

    I didn’t see any sign of an Injury until after the tapout. the RNC seemed to be in Really tight .
    I would say tapout to RNC and not Injury.
    But Im no Doctor, But I can tell you this I have the same first aid the St John guys do and I wouldn’t believe anything until a Doctor says so.

    Just glad Minh is okay. Will Tracy face any kind of disciplinary action for this btw? I think Hybrid would be wise to think twice about using guys who do stuff as flagrant as this.
    Oh and i am flattered by the name choices guys haha….

  17. Saying you have to fight MMA to understand MMA is just a weak ass argument.

    Adam Zugec and Firas Zahabi must know nothing about MMA seeing as they have not fought MMA.

  18. Just because these two have no official record on sherdog does not mean they haven’t competed or trained in some type of martial arts before. To fully understand any sport you need to train, compete, and study. Have you done any of these?

  20. I do not train. I guess I am shutting down the site.

    Not Harry Balls, Bob Cole does not play hockey and I love his commentary on the NHL. Same with Bob Costas and NFL,NBA. Jim Rome does not play any sport and can bash everything. I don’t act and I can bash the fact that MacGruber was terrible. You don’t understand English and you criticized Don’s choice of words.

  21. Johnny Utah says:

    so if a hockey player is not ready for the NHL should he be playing in the NHL? or sent back to the minors?
    I have no issue’s with a fighter coming back down to the minors, IF he is not ready to be in the pros.
    You can make another argument that theres fighters that should be fighting PRO and not figting Amature.

  22. Johnny Utah, I agree with your last sentence. When you see Zamora at 5-0 and Arsenault at 11-1, you wonder when they will decide to turn pro.

    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

  23. Andy Zamora was taking a huge challenge in Matthew Richardson. He’s going to turn pro in a few fights if he shows assiduity in the gym.

    Arsenault is 19 years old. He’s fixing to go pro soon, maybe a fight with Mandel Nallo beforehand.

    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

  24. Johnny Utah says:

    Arsenalut should not be fighting Amature nor should Zamora.
    A fight with Mandel who has 4 fights would prove what?
    Mandel is good but he hasn’t been truly tested I think he could use a couple good fights before going pro but not with a guy whos 11-1.

    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

  25. Tell that to their coaches (which I ain’t). Mandel is 3-0 but he’s the only guy left who can put up a fight with Arsenault (and arguably beat him). And it’s not true he’s untested. His three opponents were very solid.

  27. I fought a few times years ago, and shared my experiences with Keith. He’s up to snuff and can comment on fights now.

    PHEW almost had to shut down the site.

    I’m curious how many people who pull out that lame excuse have even fought?

    In my opinion having had fought, doesn’t mean shit in itself.

  28. Arseneault fights at 170. He walks around at 185. His cut for Manny Crevier was very light.

    “assiduity”: nice. While not a barn-burner of a fight, you could tell those are both some skilled cats. I think if Richardson gets him some ground game, he will go somewhere. Your blog is a cracklin’ good read btw.

  30. Thanks Harry. Keith made fun of me on Google Chat for using that word. In french “assiduité” is pretty much the word used for “dilligence”. Matthew was Andy’s biggest test. He did great, I’m happy with his performance.

    Hello, i’m Claude Perron, head coach of the Spartan Fight Club.

    First, i would like to thank Yohan for this great event. Everything was good.

    Second, Mr Don Wilson didnt see the same fight i saw by scoring it a draw…I think that Manu’s face will agree with me ;-)

    Arseneault is young (19) and he’s at college by now. He dont have time to train like a pro should. For this fight, he came to the gym about 5 times…

    He was 188lbs 5 days before the fight, 183lbs, 6 hours before the weight in and 179 for the weight-in. He will fight at 170 in pro mma. 175 to 185 in amateur.

    We still dont know if he will go pro after Xmas. We will probably look for summer 2011, when he will have finished school.

    Same thing about Leblanc, he will fight pro in 2011.

    Some teams like to have ‘pro’ fighters. i dont care about that. Our guy go pro when tey are ready and have enough experience. Arsen is 11-1 in mma and 8-2 in boxing. Leblanc is 4-1 in mma( LeBlanc and Guillaume Vigneault are 1-1 in amateur) and 5-0 in kick boxing.

    Thanks again for the great show and sorry for my english, it’s not my first language.
