Canadian Rumour Mill – July 25
Mmmmm… Chris Evans looks yummy in Captain America, I bet he’d do well in the cage or at least look good LOL. I’m sure some of you boys on this site would benefit from the muscle machine they have in the movie. I’m looking at Mike Davis and Marc-Andre especially.
- I’m hearing rumblings that Stephane Patry is bringing back TKO!!! Possibly September 30th or October 9th. If this happens, WOW!
- ECC is looking to hold their next show September 24th.
- Victor Valimaki will be looking to stop his three fight losing skid and make his return October 1st against Marcus Vanttinen in Finland.
- Elite 1 will be bringing in a Pride Vet with over 100 fights. I’m hope its not Pride bum Shannon Ritch. The Cannon is bad for the sport.
- Why is there even talk of Jason MacKay fighting for the Elite 1 LW strap? Unfortunately MacKay isn’t what he once was – one win in the last three years and 0-2 in Elite 1.
- After seeing Ryan McGillivray’s 20 point nose break, I’m betting he won’t be fighting on the upcoming Aggression card. Boy that looks nasty, I hear he needs surgery. Hopefully he’ll have a speedy recovery.
- Rumours are Winnipeg’s resident face melter and Canada’s #8 ranked 135er, Eric Perez is masquerading as a Welterweight, walking around at about 175lbs. Isn’t he fighting soon?
- Ken Hope (formerly or currently of Hope Fight Productions, I don’t know LOL) is most likely going forward and holding a show in Digby NS, on September 3rd.
- Black Mamba Kultar Gill coming back for one more fight at least? I sure hope so!
- MFC will be holding their event on October 7th now. Show will be once again at the Mayfield Trade Centre in Edmonton. No more River Cree?
- What are the odds the C3 card in Oshawa happens? No one has heard about it, the only Canadian on it might by Misha Cirkunov, and their two main eventers are both coming off losses.
- On the darker side, former Elite 1 Light-Heavyweight champion Steve Skinner has been charged with second degree murder.
- After Puric/Barnier just got pulled for the second time the week of the fight, lets hopw we see that at Global Warrior in August.
- I’m hearing a couple things about Roger Hollett. He may either be coming back to the MFC or signing with Strikeforce.
- So Mike Ciesnolevicz is fighting on Prestige FC 3, October 21. Hopefully he’ll take a step up in competition.
