For people who were looking forward to seeing some live MMA this holiday season in Halifax will be in for a tough break. Extreme Cage Combat 15: Carnage, which was scheduled to take place December 8th at Olympic Hall, has been pushed back to February. Top MMA News received a message from promoter Peter Martell stating the following

“I have been forced to reschedule ECC: Carnage to February. We had 14 fighters pulled due to injuries, concussions, medicals etc. My apologies to the athletes and supporters. I am looking forward to February.”

The event had seven scheduled fights on the card including a main event that featured up and comer Gavin Tucker against Bellator veteran Jesse Gross for the promotion’s vacant featherweight title along with Ricky Goodall facing Iraj Hadin. No word on a specific date at this time or if any of the fights will be moved over to the next event

    Bush league…Jesse wins a big fight and then the streak of bad luck continues right after. Need to get Jesse a fight since he is so exciting to watch. What’s Brad Cardinal doing? I would pay to see that. Any word on what is next for SFS after last Friday?

    Cameron. Bush league? 14 cards to date. Pioneers of MMA on the East Coast. Have you any idea what goes into putting on a show? The card will happen in a short time. Have some respect for guys that go through the stress of putting on shows.

    ECC was a much better product when Rob Walker was in charge. You have at most 7 fights booked and expect the fans to pay a high price for your product. Pioneer or not if you product is lacking then you will not sell tickets. Why should a fight fan shell out their money for seven announced fights? You should always book extra fights and expect some of them to fall through. I feel for Jesse who has been training and dieting very hard for this fight. You can call me at 519 200 4080 to discuss. I dealt with Rob in the early days of ECC when Mark Pavelich, him and I had a good working relationship.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 6

    This has nothing to do with Mr.Walker (who did a good job) I am just an observer who also supports. As previously stated call my number.

    This is not the norm for ECC, I think this might be the second time in what 6-7 years they have had to pull a card. Sucks that it happened but hopefully they can fill a card foe Feb.

    Way to wait until 2 weeks out to inform the guys who have been working their butts off to fight on the card. Very unprofessional and shows lack of respect for the athletes.

    ECC is a decent organization no doubt, but this isn’t a good sign of things to com. If I were these fighters I’d look to fight on a different card. That’s it

    I love the way Snyper handles business. Its too bad the card couldn’t take place in Dec, but shit happens. I can’t wait for this card to go down. I will be fight, I just need an opponent who won’t back out last minute again. I’m so glad my boy Mike Kent will be fighting on the card. You know it will be a packed house between him and Goodall (I’m assuming Ricky will be on the card). From the sounds of it, it will be a stacked card: Kent, Tucker, Goodall, Pat Carroll, Me (Mike Malott), Etc. Don’t miss it!
