Canadian Rumour Mill – February 6

By:

UFC and a Madonna concert in one weekend = super awesome!

  • Josh Hill vs Eric Wilson is tentative for the Score Fighting Series. Awesome scrap! Sounds like Cory Houston may challenge Lyndon Whitlock as well.
  • Kultar Gill will be competing in his first MMA fight in over 3 ½ years in the first quarter of this year, most likely in Asia.
  • Brad Duguay, who was stripped of his Elite 1 FW belt with much drama, is not expected to see action for the next half year due to nasal surgery and having his vision corrected.
  • I’m hearing Guillaume De Lorenzi could be back in May.
  • Richard Nancoo is still looking for a scrap but it seems like he has no takers. In the meantime he’s keeping busy by joining Team Shredder as a BJJ coach.
  • Armageddon FC has signed a TV deal to be broadcast in Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • Not a solid rumour, but I hear Peter Nolan may be the next Canadian fighter to challenge Robert Drysdale at AFC.
  • So with the split between Munduruca BJJ and CFC Gym will we be seeing one of Canada’s top HWs, Rodrigo Munduruca, back in action anytime soon?  Hope so!
  • Where, oh where, is Evolution?  They are a staple in Alberta yet I don’t hear a peep about any shows.

    The fact that you are pretending to be a girl doesn’t make the Madonna part ok. In fact it makes it worse.

    I am pretty certain that Shane Rice would be willing to fight Nancoo. Which organization is Nancoo looking to fight in?

    Drysdale vs Nolan would be a wicked match up, Nolan is really underrated! I wouldn’t expect this match up as Drysdale needs higher profile fights if he intends to go to the UFC after his current contract expires.

    Shane Rice vs Nancoo sounds awesome.

    Nancoo has the edge on the feet but great match up between 2 great pioneers who’ve been outta action for a long time. Perfect match up.

    Peter Nolan is so underrated, he pretty much went to a draw with Munduruca in a grappling match, in my opinion he won the bout on a takedown out of bounds and a guard pass. Drysdale will be in for a bit of a surprise here and Nolan is going to make his mark on the Canadian 205 division.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 3

    I’ve never been a Peter North fan myself. Nothing against him as an actor but he’s always been too…. I dunno.

    WTF is a “solid” rumor? Rumors are by their nature not “solid”.

    mymmaopinion… A solid rumour would be one from a source close to the fighter/promotion/situation like maybe a training partner or friend of the fighter!

    If the rumour comes from a less credible source like, perhaps someone who said they overheard a conversation while they were at the gym or something I think that would qualify as being not a solid rumour.

    Is this a “strong” rumour or just a rumour? LOL

    Exactly, that’s what really surprised me the most about the article. 2.5 wks out and you move/”cancel” the show. OY!
