Canadian Rumour Mill – August 29


What does the Gossip Queen have for you this week?

MMA season is starting back up after summer time.  Rumours seem to be coming in stronger!

  • So I’m hearing Marcus Davis vs Chris Clements will fight on the Score Fight Series.  This one should be very exciting!  Looks like Clements will be the first of the Adrenaline crew to fight after the untimely death of Shawn Tompkins.  My heart is behind Chris in this one.  Good luck to Menace and good luck making 165!
  • Bellator will be coming back to Canada on November 12.  Look for Ryan Ford to make his debut for the promotion in their  return to Casino Rama.
  • AFC moving to November 5th. Smart move as their original date had them competing against the UFC on Fox debut and Pacquiao vs Marquez.
  • Pure Fighting will have a private show for 400 on September 24.  Look for Ryan Machan to take on Josh Powell at the event that should feature several pro and amateur fights.
  • The folks who have run Battle at the Border in Michigan since 2007 are looking to put on an event in Sarnia in early December.  If John Fraser is not in the UFC by then, you gotta believe he will main event in his hometown!
  • Also it looks like Travis Quesnel will be fighting in his own promotion, EFC, in October.  Can be risky fighting in your own promotion, just ask Allen Hope.
  • Rumour has it Travis Briere is taking on Ryan Machan as well as Josh Machan vs Layne McTaggert on EFC.
  • Speaking of Hope, he and his partner are looking to stage a MMA show in Grande Prairie, those two are all over the place.
  • MMA Live will not be holding a show this fall as previously expected.
  • Looks like Score dates are firming up.  October 14 in Mississauga and the Thunder Bay show is moving to November 18.  Sorry Sault Ste. Marie, your show is scrubbed for now.
  • Kurt Southern has picked up a groin injury and is, unfortunately, out of his much anticipated Ringside title fight with Mike Ricci.  Too bad for Kurt!  Who will step up to the plate against Mike Ricci now?

    Travis Quesnel, PLEASE fight me again! if ur finally gonna fight again lets make it happen! I know you have been asked for this fight atleast 2 or 3 times from many promoters around Alberta! Beat me once should be easy to do it twice?

    whatever weight you want….

    i dont think he beat me so handily! he faked a groin shot and i got video proof to back that up! He told me hed fight me a 170. i said ok lets do it! i could make 170 easily in a few weeks! Weather or not he does fight me again, i know and he knows id beat him!

    anyway thats all im going to say about it.

    Hey Trent, if Travis doesn’t want you I would step up, looking for an opponent for the efc card. All my boys are fighting up there I’ll be super jealous just cornering. Let the promotion know, if you’re up for it! Thanks.

    Instead of seeing trent fight a guy with 1 fight, I would rather watch him fight Omic. Make that happen Travis!

    I dunno man I like to make $$$ n no offense to kotc but I’ve heard efc is paying good! That’s what I’m about. Hopefully Travis will be nice enough to set it up! Just throwing it out there. Thx.
