Canadian Rumour Mill – October 17


So Ringside’s show is coming up this week, I am curious to see how their show responds to the re-emergence of Stephane Patry and his new Instinct MMA promotion. My feelings are that this is a pivotal show for them as they obviously will want to keep their stranglehold tightly on the Quebec MMA scene. Also, come on let’s get “The Snake” back in there!

  • SHORTEST RETIREMENT EVER!?!? Lindsay Hawkes could return to competition on Hard Knocks’ Medicine Hat show against long time veteran Chris Ade, who’s coming off a long layoff. OK, I just don’t get it, first Hawkes says he’s going to fight a BILLION times before the end of the year, then he says he’s going to win a MILLION straight fights before the end of the year, he re-iterates this a few days before his September 10th fight with Chris Stranger. Then, SHOCKINGLY he announces his retirement from active competition following his loss to Stranger totally throwing his plans of MMA world domination (at least as an active competitor) into disarray. Now, I hear that his plans of world domination are back on track! PHEW, Lindsay you had me worried there… /sigh.

  • Hawkes’ WAMMA teammate, Eric Perez, is also rumoured to be on the Hard Knocks Medicine Hat card. He’s is set to fight one-legged fighter, Matt Betzold. Betzold (2-3) had to have his leg amputated due to consuming poisoned candy as a child, sad story. I really don’t see any positive in Perez fighting Betzold. He wins, everyone will criticise him for defeating a disabled fighter. If he loses, everyone will criticise him for losing to a disabled fighter. Strange…
  • With EFC’s Grande Prairie show being “postponed”, does this put a damper on their possible push into Edmonton at the end of this year?
  • Derek Boyle may be fighting Guilliame LaMarche at Instinct MMA 2.
  • Ringside has signed Heavyweight Eric Barrak away from their cross town rivals. Barrak was last seen tapping out Butterbean at Instinct MMA. Maybe now he will get to face Donald Brashear as he mentioned in his post fight interview.
  • Ringside is also talking about Steve Claveau fighting in 2012 for them in Victoriaville.
  • More Ringside, it looks like Ringside will be putting Rising Star to bed just as MFC put HeatXC to bed. There simply does not seem to be a market for debuting fights.
  • Looks like Mike Ciesnolevicz is off the Prestige FC show this week.
  • Pedro Rizzo is out of his fight with Tim Sylvia at Pro Elite. Let’s have Boyle’s favourite son, Tim Hague step in and make The Maniac crap his shorts again.

    You also say that about every organization that’s not the MFC. While i agree MFC is the biggest and best in Canada, it’s a logical fallacy that “every promotion that starts or comes near Edmonton is gonna fail, because they MFC is the best”

    Ryan Farce,

    We all think you are Pavelich. You trash the guys who pavelich does, you trash every other promotion. You hate on the guys who wont fight for MFC, the list goes on of dumb shit you have said.

    If by some chance you are not Pavelich, but a huge pavelich fan and MFC fan. You should realize your comments are only making people hate pavelich and the MFC even more than they already do. You are furthering Mr. Pavelich’s bad name, essentially leading more people to hate MFC and more fighters to stay away from MFC.

    Its already happening, fighters do not want to fight for you. Great local talent will stay clear which is unfortunate. I used to be a big MFC fan, but from what Im hearing about pavelich is that he is terrible and a terrible person to fight for. I have never ever heard one fighter defend you, that to me, says a lot. I wish you could get your act together.

    On to something worth talking about. I hope EFC comes to Edmonton and brings card full of their Champions.

    Would love to see Hague vs Sylvia although I still want to see him beat up Mike C.
