Canadian Rumour Mill – March 21
I was hanging around the water cooler last week and well some people were a little distracted and started gossiping.
- Some new promotions are popping up (or at least coming back)…
1. Slammer in the Hammer – Hamilton, ON
2. GNP – Saint John, NB
3. ECFP (East Coast Fight Productions) – Trenton, ON
4. Hope Products “Throwdown in Y-Town – Yarmouth, NS
5. Colloseo Championship Fighting – ?????
- Speaking of Colloseo, (Yay for me!), honestly reading that press release (read it here) I was thinking what is this guy Lino talking about, confusing?!?!? Do you understand the words that are coming outta my mouth? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-twUCEfzrDk) oktah ektoh onski
- Aggression vs MFC in June? Rumour has it both shows will be throwing a card on the same weekend.
- The garbage can throwing, smack talking Loud Mouth Assassin, Marcus Hicks is scheduled to fight on the upcoming BFL show, but… he’s still under suspension by the ABC over the Cage Fighting Manitoba issues. Hope this can get worked out as Marcus Hicks always brings at least some hype to the show he’s competing on.
- Heard this from a few people… Armageddon might be getting their wagons hitched up coming out to the prairies. YEEHAW!
- HeatXC where you at?
- From everything I’ve heard from a bunch of people… the Cold Lake Commission is a gong show!
- Confirmed Canadian champs at TUF Tryouts: Elite1 145lbs Champ Justin Bourgeois, KOTC Canada 135lbs Champ Ryan Knysh, former KOTC Canada 135lbs champ Clayton Sheen, EFC 135lbs Champ Owen Carr, Former KOTC Canada 145lbs Champ (He probably holds other belts too) Nick Denis, BFL Amateur 135lbs Champ Gary Mangat, W1 145lb Champ John Fraser. Anyone else?
- Who wants boxing in a cage with MMA gloves!?!? “Ultimate Cage Boxing” might be coming, brought to you by Elite1 MMA promoter Steven Williams. UGH!
- Not sure if you read the internet rumour for UFC Vancouver, but it sounds like Brock Lesnar vs Junior Dos Santos in the main event. YUM!
