Canadian Rumour Mill – August 16
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.
