Canadian Rumour Mill – May 9
I have to say it was pretty awesome to have The Score show WRECK MMA live on their site, especially great was that there was some real good fights on the show. Great debut live showing!!! Hopefully this leads to more and more live shows on both their site and TV channel. Hopefully The Fight Network will have more live TV events as well as some on their website.
- Let’s start things off with a WARNING!!! I am hearing that the May 28 Toronto CEMMA show may be postponed. The matchmaker has moved his fighters to fight in Red Deer this week. Rumours from two sources suggest the card may happen in September. If you are scheduled to fight on this card, contact the promotion and get the word from them and maybe get on another card like MMA Live or Slammer in the Hammer. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you learn that it is postponed for sure.
- What’s Aggression’s back up plan if Ryan Ford does not come out of the Karo Parisyan fight unscathed? Big risk.
- Is Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford training with Adam Zugec and ZUMA for his upcoming fights? It was strange to not see MMA trainer extraordinaire Zugec not in Ford’s corner last fight.
- Chuck Liddell will be a special guest at “Slammer in the Hammer”. More Chuck for your MMA buck!
- What’s up with the MFC and their champs… Healey, Prangley, McKee, and now Lima, WOW!!!
- Whatever happened to that guy with W-1 tattooed on his chest. SUPER LOLZ!!!
- Look for The Fight Network to broadcast AFC live in June.
- Am I the only one that thinks Jason Day (19-11) vs. Francis Carmont (14-7) is kind of a strange fight, like why Carmont???
- Dan Chambers suffered a broken arm in his big victory over Farmer Brown, OUCH!
- Is Hermes Franca still fighting for the MFC Lightweight belt??? Hermes Franca just got KOd by some 2-3 guy in Brazil, BRUTAL!!!
- Speaking of the MFC Lightweight division, is Marcus Davis moving back up from 155lbs to 170lb to fight Pete Spratt on the upcoming MFC card? Why wouldn’t they replace Franca, who just got knocked out by a guy with a losing record, with Marcus Davis to fight Fickett for the Lightweight title?
- Bourgeouis vs Duguay for the Elite1 Featherweight strap
- Some strange details coming out on twitter from what I hear… did a computer voice from the future call one of the Aggression owners and not so nicely tell them to change their date? SSSSSTTRRRAAAANNGGEEE!!!
- So I see that Victor Valimaki is scheduled to be back in action on the upcoming Aggression card, is he going to go by “The Finisher” or “The Matrix”?
