Canadian Rumour Mill – November 28


Poor Keith must be sad, his beloved Blue Bombers lost the Grey Cup. Cheer up you still have the Jets.

  • Sad to see Erin McDougall lose on the weekend, I’m sure she’ll be back better than ever. And I guess Tim Skidmore retired, I didn’t even know he “fought”. :)
  • From what I can gather … Brad Cardinal’s fight against Tim Skidmore should not have happened for at least two reasons. Firstly the obvious difference in records, but secondly Brad Cardinal still needed an MRI to clear his suspension by the Ontario commission. Let’s see how this plays out and if actually accurate, how other commissions react.
  • Stephane Patry’s saying he’s the only one talking to Fedor and crew about bringing him to Quebec. In fact, Patry will be heading to Holland to talk with Fedor’s manangement in the near future.
  • Speaking of Instinct, Instinct 3 should have Phil Baroni and Jens Pulver making their appearance with the organization. Brock Larson is another name that is rumoured for the card.
  • Matt Baker and Andrew Buckland are tentatively scheduled to face off for the BFL Middleweight title at BFL 13.
  • GSP’s RUSHFIT DVD sold over 250,000 copies. WOWZERS!
  • Looks like Montreal will get their annual UFC card on March 24th.
  • Jesse Gross battles it out with Daron Cruickshank on the Meltdown show in Sarnia.
  • Ryan Jimmo may be going to Japan for New Year’s Eve.
  • So what exactly is Eric O’Keefe’s involvement with Ringside now? Lots of Ringside 2.0 talk…
  • No Kajan Johnson on the January MFC show? Show looks pretty full with 9 or so fights already talked about.

    “Ryan Jimmo may be going to Japan for New Year’s Eve.”

    Anyone else hearing anything?

  12. Robin Black says:

    No last I heard awhile back they wanted him to get a finish or 2 first.

    Tho, c’mon, the guy has won 16 in a row. If true it would be about time.

    Where are you hearin that? If true he deserves it imo.

    Hey guys,

    As for the Montreal headliner, I doubt it’d br Brock/Reem vs JDS because JDS might need surgery and that’s a very quick turnaround for the winner of Lesnar/Reem.

    Jones/Machida will be too soon. Besides if Jones wins (i doubt it) he’ll take some time off. He fought 4 times this year.

    Cruz/Faber will coach TUF. So not them.

    Shogun and hendo are out for a long time.

    Rashad vs Davis maybe?

    Whoa! Rashad might be fighting one of the Davis brothers? Which one??? :)

    He’ll be fighting the long lost Davis brother from another mother, Phil Davis! lol

    Yup, after years of padding his record better than a teen girl pads a bra, Mike Davis is stepping up and taking on Rashad. I think Rashad will have to worry about the unconventional style that Mike brings to the table.

  22. CM says:

    Probably because they can’t officially announce his fight until after tonights TUF airs.

    Erin McDougall is not a good fighter, she is just hot. Thats the cold hard truth. A standing guillotine? Who gets caught with that?

  24. Gunner says:

    Chuck i beg to differ Erin looks like she has some very decent stand up considering she has not been competing all that long and also you saying who gets caught in a standing gilly????

    well i am sure there are hundreds of examples but it is about as silly as saying who gives up there back and lets someone rear naked choke them……. it happens so does getting knocked out so does getting arm barred and the list goes on.

    On that note i think you just spoiled your friday night date night chance with her

    Of course he thinks that she looks good. It is Thursday afternoon, he has been drinking for quiet a few hours by now and all females are looking better then ever.

    I trained and sparred with Erin in Lethbridge.

    She works really hard and is dedicated.

    In sparring she was very game, never backed down, and had good technique.

    She really is pretty good and, with her work ethic, she will get better every week.

    Give her a break, its not her fault she’s hot.

  31. Robin Black says:

    Also Gunner isn’t responding cuz it’s 5:34 TBay time so he’s passed out and will only wake up at 10 pm for 15 minutes to guzzle enough hooch to wet himself. Again.

    1) chuck standing guillotines are a bad ass move.

    2) hey lorenz! how the hell have you been? hope all is well.

    3)gunner has been drunk since october 28. the day of the week doesn’t matter.

    4)erin is an mma fighter and an athlete like anyone else win or lose and the fact she has less hairy legs than many fighters and is pretty enough to sell her bath water as a post workout drink should not change the fact she is a tough bitch for stepping in the cage.

    Bobby, how dare you put me in the spot like that and by jesus, how could any gal with two of me pointing south on them even be considered unattractive.

    Mr. Lorenz plkease just come and enjoy one evening in Thunder Bay with me before that silly wagon comes to pick me up again,

    MR black I am gonna have to reread what you wrote I forget if you were for or against me on what ever it was that I was saying.

    Erin please do not get angry at me I will forget everything I just said by morning. But I still get first visual so no pulling out on that deal.

    Bobby I am even angrier at you now than when I started this rant
