  3. @Rumors… That was one reason I wanted to talk to Eric O’Keefe. After talking to him, I am convinced we will see more Ringside and that is great.

  4. Eric says:

    There are a lot of rumors going around in Qc, and a lot of those rumors are starting around the same coffee cup… Yeah, we’ve been bombarded with demands for all kinds of financial statements, but at the end of the day, we have a strong promotion with great fighters, and they might slow us down, and, worse case scenario, make us skip one show (if push comes to shove) but we ain’t going nowhere, even if our competitor and the Regie sometimes seem in cahoots, I remain positive on the outcome of all this.
