    No, his opponent for PFC was injured and as far as I know he’s off the card!

    Mazany wants to smash Stephen however AFC doesn’t want to pay, cheap asses.

    Mazany would kill Stephen.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 1 Thumb down 10

  5. Cody Rempel says:

    Actually Mazany is defending his Middleweight title in Australia 2 weeks before this event so they didn’t want to risk having their co-main event miss weight or end up injured and not have time to find a suitable replacement… I’m sure Mazany will get the next shot!

  6. Dean Panas says:

    Cody is correct. Dave got a great offer while he was still in Australia to stay a few more weeks and fight again. It was a great offer financially and they treat him great in Australia.
    Aggression did not low ball him with their offer with the AFC Lightweight title shot. Moin was very understanding with the opportunity that arose for Dave and wished him the best. Evan was available and since he was a winner in the original tournament it’s a fight that makes sense.

    Maybe Westcott vs. Blaber… Westcott coming up from 170lbs, Blaber coming down from 205lbs

  9. Stephen was hoping to meet Dave Mazany in the cage. Although disappointing, hopefully they will meet one day. I really wanted to see the stare down between those two mean muggers!!!

    However, Evan Sanguin can’t be over looked. He avenged his last lost ((against Trevor Wright)which was a ref stoppage after his arm broke in a take down)in his last 5 or 6 outings.

    This should be a good fight!

    BIG BAD all the way!! Also, Stephen is 5-0 not 4-0!

  11. Guns Loaded says:

    Why does AFC post fights that are not signed?

    Drysdale isn’t fighting Victor as reported by an interview in Las Vegas recently?

    Why do these promoters post false facts?

  12. Top MMA News posted up the fight. It was talked about after AFC 8 on our radio show with AFC, but this fight remained unconfirmed and unapproved by the commission.

  15. Simon Marini is moving up to LHW. I saw him beat Alberto Crane at 155 at UCW. First Hackert and now Marini. It seems a lot of guys are moving way up in weight divisions.

  17. Robin Black says:

    Marini is a big dude that used to be obsessed with weight cutting and low body fat percentage. He always walked around close to 200 pounds between fights and was a crazzzzzy cutter. He even had a “cut 25 pounds in a week” ebook I think it was called “6 day 6 pack”.

    I think he enjoys eating and lifting more than weight cutting now. Very sensible dude.

    When Simon fought Sheldon Westcott, he looked HUGE. I dont find it too crazy that hes going to fight at 205. That should actually be a really great fight too!

    Chemelli said he was told Marini is walking around at 217lbs!

    Sheldon Wescott vs Ryan Mahan would be sweet, wescott moving up to 185 just like Ryan has and a good test for Wescott to bump him up in ranks if he wins.

    So the headline still doesn’t have an opponent?

    O same with half the card.

    I really hope the other half of the card isn’t bums.

    Fans thinking. If the opponents were worth noting they would.

    Sources say lots 3-4 of these fights won’t happen.

    I am a big supporter of Aggression, but Valimacki better not fight a bum for the title. You will lose credibility of your show if that happens. Heres an opportunity to consistantly put on better shows then MFC, make use of it

    This seems like every AFC card one sided.
    I guess TBA means Tomatoe Can.
    I wish for more from AFC but I guess what can you do a promoter is a promoter.

    Top MMA News most likely;

    Nick Dragich an Victor Valimaki won’t have opponents for this card. Which sucks cause Nick would be interesting to see an Victor is always entertaining.

    That is probably the biggest jump I have heard a local guy go through. Considering his opponent is chemelli as well… He is pretty big and strong.

  41. Demitri (trev) says:

    Excited for blabber vs buckland. Now hopefully they get an opponent for westcot! This card is shaping up to be excellent. To bad valimacki couldn’t get a good opponent for an already stacked Edmonton card

    Thumb up 3 Thumb down 1

  42. Robin Black says:

    Marini fought at 170, and walked around sometimes well over 200. (He has fought even lower).

    He was an obsessive body fat reducer and prolific weight cutter. He wrote an ebook called “6 day 6 pack”.

    He likes lifting and eating now, and he seems to feel like he cut enough weight in those last 5 or 6 fights.

    If he’s walking 217 that’s only about a dozen pounds over the weight he walked at for 170.

    He’s a bad ass at any weight.

    is that correct that heynen and bell are fighting at 145?

    Thumb up 1 Thumb down 0

  44. Sorry Josh, the fight is in the LW division. After Drysdale’s injury problems we had 2-3 very suitable opponents that would require victor to do a full training camp and with the short timeline it wasn’t feasible. Im very sorry for how late we posted the card. Injuries, date issues and fighters going awol this card was constant curveballs.

    This card seems less promoted than the Calgary show. Lots of Hype in Calgary but I didn’t realize Edmonton was having a show.

    Good luck anyways.

    Maybe hire media & promo staff , just a thought.
