  10. I’m not sure how anybody thought Harris would hang with Gagnon. He’s a damn beast at 145, no reason he wont’ dominate at 135.

    I wouldn’t want to be any of the other 135ers in Canada right now.

    Gagnon will be one of the best 135ers in Canada IMO

    Good win!

    Robin: underestimating your opponent is almost always a mistake. Underestimating Mitch Gagnon… well, that’s just craziness! You called it!
    He has:
    Legendary Heart
    Superior Skills
    Inhuman strength, speed and conditioning
    Raw Fearlessness

    And he is way too humble to agree with me on any of this!

    Should go straight to UFC. Sign him up Dana!

  21. Grasshopper says:

    I’m sure he would for the right fight. It would have to be someone with equal or higher ranking, I would think, so he can really showcase his skills.

    He was just ranked #2 Bantamweight in Canada by Fightmatrix.com. Just below Jabouin but above Menjivar, both UFC fighters. I think that increases the likelihood of being called up significantly!

    Interesting times for Gagnon, for sure….
