Canadian Rumour Mill: April 4
Well I got spanked by Ken Kupsch last week, ouch! Sorry Ken, my apologies on getting that one wrong. I had a couple of what I thought were good sources, guess I/they were wrong. My apologies. I looked like an April fool.
By the way, MMA Hottie and Personality Erin McDougall mentioned me on her blog :) YAY! (She mentioned how she’s not me, denial? lol)
On to this week’s rumours.
- Louis Philippe Carle did not fight on last weekend’s MMA: The Reckoning show. Injury or different offer? Also Anna Barone is jumping on and off some cards. WRECK, The Reckoning, MMA Live… makes you wonder.
- As discussed on Top MMA News, Ford vs MacGrath or Parisyan.
- This isn’t a rumour or gossip, but I was really disappointed in Yabushita. It looked like she totally didn’t belong in the same cage as Kaufman. She looked like she had no training, let alone 14 years worth.
- More weird Ontario stuff. I hear Clements vs Parisyan was supposedly rejected.
- AFC 6 “Conviction” will have the returns of both Kalib Starnes and Robert Drysdale.
- MFC is looking at having 145lbs fighters compete on their shows in 2011.
- So after the THROWDOWN IN Y-TOWN card was announced in Yarmouth, two other shows approached the venue/commission to setup events. Supposedly, one even tried to steal the date.
- Not sure if they’re retired or not, but a fight I’d like to see on a Ringside show is Yan Pellerin vs Ricardeau Francois. I’m not sure really why I want that fight, but I do. :)
- Look for former MFC and TFC Light Heavyweight Champion as well as UFC and M-1 vet Victor “The Matrix Finisher” Valimaki to return to action around mid year.
