    It will still be a great card. Doctor said October when I asked him when I would be able to fight again.

    I’m very disappointed obviously but I’ll be back and hopefully afc can find a place for me then as well–those victoria girls need me :)

    Wish me luck in recovery and good luck with the show guys.

    @happydaystoday: Thank you for the motivation, it’s comments like yours that light a fire under my ass to continue to improve every event and strive to become Canadas #1 promotion.

    You did miss the majority of the main card though.

  9. ccanadx says:

    why do guys like happydays try to bring negetive energy into it?

    I do not see the manager of the yankees listing the dodger’s players strike outs and error stats and leaving out hits, home runs, era, stolen bases, etc – as well leaving out the top of the lineup.

    Can we mature this sport?

  11. Mr. Darren, I have tried to contact you by email and phone as well but no reply .
    I had very goods thoughts about you before going to send you MMA Gloves but after sending it now I realize that how selfish you are.
    You have to pay us your given order’s total amount and you have already received your goods more than 3 weeks before.
    Even one of our Client Mr. Chris contacted you as canadian but you didn’t reply to him.
    You have a good and wellknown company in Canada and how can you deceive others. But you can not deceive people for long time and one day you definately realize this.
    Have a good day.
