Canadian Rumour Mill – September 10
Well it sure looks like Canadian MMA has finished its summer break and really starting back up strong. FIVE shows this coming weekend and Mike Hill and Mike Ricci on TUF 14! (http://topmmanews.com/
- Fast rising Jason Saggo’s next bout will be against Eric Moon for Score Fighting Series in Sarnia.
- As well SFS – Sarnia will debut the first Ontario flyweight (125lbs) fight since MMA was legalized in that province; Malcolm Gordon will take on Tyler Kirk at that event.
- And… Brad Cardinal has signed with SFS. I’m curious if the much delayed possible bout with David Letourneau will ever happen?
- Speaking of AFC, look for Paul Cheng to take on Ryan Hunter in a HW match up at the November AFC 12 show.
- I’m hearing more and more that AFC may be the only show held in Winnipeg this year… NO CFM? NO CFC? NO SFS? :(
- There’s been some WRECK MMA chatter on the site this last week, so here’s some stuff for you guys…
- Look for Nathan Gunn to take on Mark Holst
- Randy Turner could take on UFC vet Joseph Sandoval.
- Also, we have seen a couple of OAMA fighters fight for UK based Cage Warriors (Jordan and Ukraine shows). Now rumours are out there that WRECK and Cage Warriors are talking. Could this lead to the first Cage Warriors show in Canada in the future?
- So Mike Schiavello said that Mike Kent had retired due to repeated broken hands. No word if this is true or a mistake by The Voice. My thoughts are that The Voice is wrongo!
- Shane Campbell is in need of high level opponent for his October 5th Unified MMA bout.
- Tristar Fights may debut as early as November 30th with Alex Garcia making his return from injury on the card!
- Who will fight Advin Omic for the 170 lb AFC title at the Calgary AFC show in November?
- The next Aggression show in Edmonton will be November 23rd.
- Kurt Southern will not be appearing on the first World Series of Fighting card. He’s pencilled in for the second WSOF card tentatively scheduled for January. Hopefully Southern gets a fight in before that, it’s already been over a year since his last fight!
- Smealinho Rama has been signed for MFC 35.
- K-1 Results: Gabriel Varga defeated Lerdsila Chumpairtour by unanimous decision, while the on weight Markhaile “Showtime” Wedderburn was defeated by Jeremiah Metcalf via KO (knee to the body).
