    But are you sure he’s a middleweight?

    This guy was getting killed by Ryan Fortin in the MFC, gassed in his last fight look terrible in the third round. Joe Silva must seriously be taking drugs. Mitch Clarke then Penner, who’s next ?

    Don’t worry too much about ryan farse. Just think of reading those posts the same way you would about the cartoons in the newspaper. Just a mildly entertaining way to start the morning.

    Congrats to yet another Canuck making it to the big show!

    8 straight wins over tough guys like Chemelli, Ganshorn, Fortin and J-Rod should be enough Farse.

    By the way does any know if he’s signed as a heavyweight or a LHW?

  27. Cody Rempel says:

    He’s put in a lot of work getting down to 205 so I’d assume it’s at LHW.

    Mark P aka Ryan Farse, please stop crying and hating and pretending people dont know its you. I know you have a hard time dealing with it, but the truth is that guys go from good canadian promotions TO the UFC…sadly, you get the guys AFTER they’ve hit the prime and compete in the UFC. It’s okay, you’ve got…Jimmo…haha…keep bringing in OLD ufc guys and stop making yourself look bad on here by pretending people dont know it’s you on here. Congrats to Nick Penner and Mitch Clarke!!!

    Hey Champ, congrats on the UFC, you deserve it! I’m sooooo glad that I had a chance to meet you and Dean @ Bullys Fight Night 2. The Lethbridge fans are disappointed that you won’t be coming back to defend your Heavyweight title but are excited to watch you kick ass in the UFC. All the best!!!

    ryan farse, you’re impressive in one way, at least. The fact that you’ve gone this far without killing yourself tells me you’ve got much more strngth than any of us ever predicted. My hat goes off to you, good sir.

    LOL. Michael Bisping, despite one questionable decision in London, has an incredible resume and just went toe-to-toe with Chael Sonnen in a nip-tuck decision. He is a perennial top ten middleweight and makes more in fight purses annually than MFC makes per year in revenue. You would think someone who claims such alleged success would be above gloating schadenfreude. Enjoy your 400 person “sellouts” in hotel lobby.

    Lol. If he sucks so bad why did you hire him? You are a royal douche Pav I don’t know why anyone would sign with you and your tanking promotion.
