Canadian Rumour Mill – August 11
Lazy days of summer, working on my tan, lounging on the boat, relaxing at the cabin.
- I’m hearing that Ryan Chiappe and BFL have parted ways
- Dana Dickeson will be making his return to MMA at Elite 1 vs the bad for the sport Shannon “The Cannon” Ritch, October 15th.
- Also it looks like Canadian Extreme Cage Rage will be Elite 1’s new feeder promotion.
- Looks like the drama is starting back up between Team Legion and Stephane Patry. “The Snake” has been a little vocal about Patry’s return.
- Butterbean confirmed to be at Prestige FC 3
- So haven’t heard too much out of Aggression the last few weeks on match ups and news, a couple questions I have are…. is Ryan Ford still fighting for the Aggression Welterweight title now that he’s signed to Bellator? Will TUF competitor Ryan McGillivray be able to compete on their show?
- What a messy fallout from Hope Fight Productions. The Ken Hope led card MMA card in Digby, Nova Scotia is NOT happening now. No news from the Allen Hope side of things. Trainwreck!
- It’s Robin Black’s birthday, but I’m betting CCF President Lino Santoro wasn’t on the list of people wishing him a happy birthday. Santoro’s been busy complaining and taking shots at Robin Black (oh and Top MMA News as well). LOL, well HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBIN!
- HMMM, are Hard Knocks and Cage Fighting Manitoba merging or forming some kinda of partnership/alliance (ie. Aggression & AFC)? Ari Taub (HK) just recently met with Gabriel Santos (CFM).
- Speaking of Hard Knocks, I was wrong Andrew Buckland and Keto Allen will be battling it out at Hard Knocks, not AX Combat. The fight will be for the Hard Knocks WW belt.
