Canadian Rumour Mill – July 16
Wow. It sure has been hot in Canada this past week. It’s finally cooling off but it will heat up again in Calgary next weekend. I will be there to cheer on our Canadian boys and maybe wrestle some Cow-Town cowboys. :)
- Well, No decision has been made by Perez about a return to the cage. He could fight for AFC, SFS, or not fight at all. All depends on if Perez is willing to go through a hard training camp while training for a new career and if a promotion will make it worth his while.
- Look for the Score Fighting Series to hold an event on August 25th in Hamilton. I’m hearing Josh Hill will be on this show, with Chris Horodecki and Will Romero also possibly appearing. The Score is also looking at Nov 23, again in Hamilton. BUT this is SFS and these are just rumours, so you never know.
- Chris Stranger will return to the ring after nearly a year and appear on the Winnipeg SFS show.
- Bellator is looking to return to Canada on Saturday, Oct 6th in Windsor and Friday, Nov 2nd at Casino Rama.
- Also, it’s very probable that Ryan Ford will be in the Bellator Welterweight tournament next season. No date or opponent at this time for the Real Deal.
- Quick Freedom Fights (Oct 27th) update. Two tentative fights: Blake Nash vs Aaron Basso and Mitch Fryia vs Derek MacDonald. How bout some Craig “Wardog” Hudson or Brent Fryia, Pete Rodley?
- As of right now, Gary Mangat will not be joining Kultar Gill this time on the SFL card in India.
- Maybe The Black Prince should contact Tyson Griffin to be Spencer’s first opponent on the October MFC show.
- Is Chad Freeman still the KOTC LW champ? Regardless, Freeman is dying to get into a Canadian cage against top competition. What’s the hold up??? Opponents? Money? Location?
- Woodrow… does Meltdown in the Valley return to the RBC Centre in Sarnia on September 29th ?
- Show Stealer Lenny Wheeler made his decision to join the growing 145lbs division of Aggression FC. Hopefully we’ll see Wheeler make his AFC debut on the AFC/Unifed super show in October, or sooner…
- I’m hearing a few guys have been asked to be the first challenge to Mike Davis and his Unified Flyweight Championship. Quite a shallow pool of guys to draw from, especially if you want an opponent that’s coming off a win.
- Look for many of the AFC/Unified “Invasion” show to feature fighters from one of the promotions battling it out with fighters from the other. Some of the names being tossed around other than what’s already on Top MMA News are: Shane Campbell, Merrick Duggan, Nick Dragich, and Robbie Merrill.
- Are we going to see Kurt Southern and Dave Mazany in the AFC cage?
- A new group is planning a possible show in Brampton, Ontario on Saturday, Nov 10th.
