Canadian Rumour Mill – July 30
Wow…. anyone catch the Arsenault vs Goodall fight over the weekend? What a tilt! I never thought Arsenault was that good, but I was sure wrong! Congrats to Richard for retaining his title and to Goodall for putting on a good scrap. You can still check it out HERE for $10!
- Eddie Alvarez will take on Patricky “Pitbull” Freire in Windsor at Bellator 76 on October 12th. This will be the final fight on Alvarez’s current Bellator contract.
- MCSC – The Manitoba Boxing Commission has changed their name to the more appropriate Manitoba Combative Sports Commission due to the emergence of MMA.
- MFC… Ring vs Cage debate seems to have been put to rest. The five roped ring is here to stay! He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not, HE LOVES ME!
- I’m hearing Will Romero will face Strikeforce vet David Douglas at SFS. What happens when a Lion meets Tarzan?
- More from The Score… unfortunately, Tristan Johnson vs Chris Horodecki will not happen at SFS. WHY?!?!?!?
- Wreck MMA’s next show is on November 9, expect to see Tariq Ismail, Randy Turner, Mark Holst. This girl suggests Randy Turner vs Tyler Davis and Mark Holst vs Nathan Gunn or Lindsey Hawkes!
- Also, after two years of animosity between Amateur MMA promoter Dan Guillemette of Hybrid and Wreck MMA Nick Castiglia rumor is they have agreed to work together. Expect some Hybrid fighters to appear on the next Wreck card. GROUP HUG!!!
- Scott Fraser is dropping to 205. Looks like he will face Chris Johnson at the next Elite 1 MMA for Johnson’s Light-Heavyweight title.
- Score fights set for August 25th: Jason Saggo vs. Eric Attard, Simon Marini vs. Elias Theodorou and Jason Meisel vs. Kyle Prepolec.
- Canada’s capital may get MMA! Groups are in early talks to put on a show in Ottawa’s JetForm Park! How about Prime Minister Harper vs whomever is running the Liberal party these days for the main event?
- Friends from The Pas tell us that CFC 8 could make its return at the OCN Arena on October 27. Maybe they overheard CFC “Godfather” Giuseppe DeNatale say “Just when I thought I was out…they pull me back in”. Those words may or may not have been spoken by Don Giuseppe DeNatale, who may or may not be a Don.
- CFC 8, if it happens, has a rumoured main event of Lee Mein vs Dan Severn, in a fight that what would be billed as Severn’s last Canadian appearance. Once again the following may or may not have been overheard… “I’m gonna make them an offer they won’t refuse. Okay? I want you to leave it all to me. Go on, go back to the party.”
- Matt Dwyer vs Ryan Chiappe for the BFL title is up next!
- Don’t be surprised if the Score moves or cancels its October date in Winnipeg. Score dates move up and down faster than a whore’s panties on payday!
- An MMA first? Ever hear of a show not having ring girls? Elite Championship Fighting had no ring girls over the weekend in The Pas. Even Invicta had ring girls!
- Mark Holst will be fighting Leo Santos in Jordan. Watch out for Flying Armbars, Mark !
- Mike Kent broke his hand again last weekend playing paper rock scissors…just joking :)
