Canadian Rumour Mill – August 16

By:

Halfway through the slow MMA month of August. Makes it difficult for a girl like me to spread gossip when there isn’t much going on.

Very sad news about the unexpected passing of Shawn Tompkins, RIP.

  • If MMA Live holds a second show, look for it to move to a Friday or Saturday rather than the Thursday MMA Live 1 was held on. SMART!
  • Armageddon Fighting Championship will return with their next show on November 12th.
  • I’m hearing Lino Santoro (CCF) has contacted a lawyer and is threatening to take a well known member of the Alberta MMA community to court in response to supposed words said about Lino’s business practices.
  • Dan Severn vs Chris Johnson in Elite 1. Severn will be defending his World Championship.
  • Tim Hague vs Demian Decorah is not happening at Aggression “Unfinished Business”. Decorah has dropped out.
  • Matt Bagshaw of BDB will face major prospect Freddy Assuncao at Aggression MMA’s September 16th “Unfinished Business” card. Great opportunity for Calgary’s Bagshaw.
  • Steve Claveau has been denied his license to fight in Quebec.

  4. Tim Hague’s opponent has been replaced and will be announced asap. Matt Bagshaw will be representing Canada at the Fila world grappling championships on sept 29 so he opted for that opportunity. We will also have Freddy’s opponent announced shortly. Wishing Matt the best

    More bullshit from Quebec. An already-broke province pissing away tax dollars on a petty vendetta. I really hope an Ontario promotion is smart enough to get Snake a fight here. He is fun to watch and a hell of a hype man.

    Tim vs Toney Lopez! Im getting sick of hearing “no Canadians want to fight lopez” we got more than a good handful that would beat him, I would like to see it happen already. Maybe not even this card, but another.

    I dont care what promotion picks up Steve “The Snake” as long as someone does. Its been far too long since we’ve had the pleasure to see Claveau fight.
