Canadian Rumour Mill – June 12
I’m hearing all these Justice League DC Comics movie rumours. Well when and if filming starts, Batman and Superman may have a new teammate. Nick Ring threw his name in the mix by capturing a bunch of wannabe gangsters who were roughing up a young woman outside of a Starbucks in Calgary. Although on second thought, having met “The Promise Ring”, maybe he’s better suited for a character in a rumoured Watchmen sequel. (Check out Nick’s story HERE.)
- Well I guess most fans aren’t the only people unhappy with losing Aldo and getting Faber. Urijah Faber @UrijahFaber “Not real pumped on the change either. Was really looking forward to July 4th weekend in Vegas. Oh well”
- I wonder what The Black Prince of MMA thinks about the Edmonton Commission now that it’s supposedly suspended Ft. Mac/Prestige combatants for 90 days. This very much puts his Tim Hague vs Mike Hackert HW fight in jeopardy as MFC 34 is within the 90 suspension window.
- Wishing Kajan Johnson good health and quick healing. Kajan had further facial surgery on Monday.
- MFC fighter Jamie Toney and his team is really pushing to be the next challenger to take on WW champ Nathan Coy.
- With Ricky Goodall fighting for a title on July 28, it does not look good for an August ECFP show. Hopefully he manages to do both!
- Bibiano is stating that he never signed with the UFC on his Facebook page. Apparently, ONE FC offered him a more lucrative deal.
- Yves Jabouin will take on Brad Pickett on September 29th in Nottingham, England.
- Remember when Ryan Jimmo did not want to fight Glover Texeira for the MFC Light-Heavyweight title? Sounds like Jimmo is not the only one avoiding Glover. Shogun wanted no part of him for UFC Calgary according to Dana White, using the same reasoning as Jimmo. Wanting to fight a top contender.
- Jason “The Prototype” Tatlow (12-3) is looking to get back in the Lightweight mix after a five year break to sharpen up his skills. Maybe a tune up fight, then throw out a challenge to recently crowned AFC LW champ, Stephen “Big Bad” Beaumont, who’s defeated two of Tatlow’s training partners (Andre & Phillips)

- A couple of ex-UFC fighters are having their name thrown around for separate fights on the Score Winnipeg show rumoured to be held in September. I’m hearing Jesse Bongfeldt and Joe Doerksen are in the mix for bouts for that event. Maybe Eric Perez will unretired for one fight and give the hometown Winnipeg fans one last hurrah, a girl can dream :)
- Update: It looks like Advin Omic will get a shot at Derek Medler for the AFC Welterweight title if he gets past William Sriyapai this weekend at AFC 10.
