Canadian Rumour Mill – Halloween Edition
Congrats to Nathan Gunn in defeating Nabil Khatib and winning the Wreck MMA Welterweight Championship in one heck of a 5 round title fight. I have to say the Wreck show was very enjoyable, streamed beautifully on thescore (looked great in HD), had some great competitive fights, and good commentary. Impressed!
And well I guess Nick Diaz vs GSP is back on again! Wow! Diaz looked super impressive in beating up BJ Penn.
- Looks like the Pure FC main event is going to be Ryan Machan vs AFC champion John Salter.
- 5 time UFC vet Tim Hague will be making his boxing debut in Edmonton on December 9th. (By the way, notice that while everyone was saying Hague would fight Lashley, Gossip Queen was the one who had it right all along?)
- Has hell frozen over in Winnipeg? Sounds like CFC Gym fighters Kyle Oliveira and Travis Gervais may appear on the Cage Fighting Manitoba show. Great to see CFC and CFM talking as that can only help Winnipeg MMA. What does this say about the future of CFC as a show???
- Matchmaker Orest Zymndak and KOTC Canada have parted ways.
- Speaking of King of The Cage, Shannon Ritch got TKOd last week, I’m guessing Luke Harris will need a new opponent for his November 18th KOTC Canada fight.
- It sounds like Ringside will not go ahead with a December card in Quebec City.
- Look for Instinct MMA 3 to have at least a couple female MMA fights, with possibly Jessica Branco of BTT Canada and Steve Bosse’s partner Ariane Goyette competing in separate match ups.
- Ringside Bantamweight champion Stephane Pelletier will most likely avoid Mitch Gagnon for his next fight. I don’t blame him!
- Pavelich has been tweeting that MFC will be in the US in 2012. Will this finally be the year?
- Although Gouveia/Lewis has been announced by MFC, this fight is still dependent on Dwayne’s back holding up in training. Mark this one as 50% happening for now.
