Canadian Rumour Mill – April 3
Great victory by Patrick “Predator” Cote this last weekend (watch the full fight here http://topmmanews.com/2012/04/01/fight-video-patrick-cote-wins-fourth-consecutive-by-koing-machado) over Gustavo Machado in Brazil. This should definitely help him get back to the UFC where he belongs. Congrats to the Predator!
- Sounds like Antonio Carvalho will join Mitch Gagnon on the Calgary UFC card.
- Matt Richer, Head Coach and owner of Leading Edge Gym in Thunder Bay, home of Bellator signed fighters Matt Veal and Nathan Gunn, as well as Dave Letourneau amongst others received his BJJ Black belt this past weekend from Dan Moroney. Big and well deserved congratulations to a talented coach and one of the good guys in the sport!!!
- Unfortunately Ryan Chiappe has reaggrevated an old injury and is out of his upcoming MFC contest. Surgery is booked for this week, hopefully he’ll recover quickly and be back soon.
- Who sanctioned the Amateur MMA fights at Unified in Edmonton?
- I’m just curious, why is it that a guys like Eric O’Keefe and Steve Claveau can’t get sanctioned in Quebec, but Todd Stoute does? Also on that point, why hasn’t Claveau fought outside of Quebec to stay active?
- By the way, rumour has it that Stoute missed his Instinct fight due to breaking his court mandated curfew.
- Tim Sylvia at Instinct MMA 4 is a definite possibility
- Unbeaten Elias Theodorou, not Ali Mokdad, will face Richie Lictawa at Bellator this weekend.
