Canadian Rumour Mill – August 21
Ugh! I guess it wasn’t a good night for Sarah Kaufman. Just wasn’t her night, but I’m sure she’ll come back better and stronger than ever. Still the Queen of Canada!
- A rumour coming from Ontario is that Manitoba’s Executive Director may become the Deputy Director of Ontario.
- The Score Fighting Series have cancelled any plans for their rumoured Winnipeg event.
- I’m hearing Steve Beaumont is out of the Unified/AFC supershow.
- Also hearing that Chad Freeman and Jose Rodriguez may have been offered a shot at Shane Campbell on the show.
- Mike Ricci has made TUF 16. Congrats!
- KOTC Canada returns after taking the summer off with a show in Edmonton on November 16th.
- Spike TV and K1 have reached a deal to broadcast their events in North America. One of the events they will be streaming live on Spike.com is the September 8th card in Los Angeles in which Showtime Wedderburn will take on Jeremiah Metcalf and Spike.com will have the entire card including the prelims.
- Sounds like Gary Mangat will fight for Battlefield Fight League in Penticton in November.
- Chris Horodecki has signed to fight in Sarnia in October. This will not be a Meltdown in the Valley card.
- Depending on the outcome of their Score fights this week: John Fraser and Jesse Ronson could be on that same Sarnia show. If he gets past Alex Ricci, how about Ronson vs John Alessio?
- There is a good chance that the next Instinct headlined by Brandon Thatch vs Evangelista Cyborg will be Instinct’s first international event.
- People are asking me about Ryan Ford and here is the latest….no opponent yet, but look for Ford on the Rama card. With a win, he should make the Spike TV Welterweight tourney in 2013.
- Bad for the Sport News: Supposedly this alleged murderer is a known mixed martial artist. http://www.edmontonsun.com/2012/08/09/accused-mma-trained-killer-appears-in-edmonton-court http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Trevor-Toews-20879
