    Since when have they allowed pros to fight as amateur?

    Elijah Richards fought pro in manitoba this year already.

    Ian Odland weighed in at 133 lbs for his fight with Sam King. How was that fight still allowed? Where was the sask commission on that?
    How in the hell is a pro fighting amateur? That’s fucked up.

  16. Let’s put Marc’s contributions to MMA out there:

    Fighter – Fought a bunch of times from 2000 on and trained with Manitoba’s best.
    Manager – Managed a bunch of fighters including a few who post here.
    Promoter – Promoted CFC with Giuseppe DeNatale
    Matchmaker – One of the better matchmakers in the country
    Journalist – Helped populate the original Sherdog Fight Finder and founded Canada’s #1 MMA web site.
    Commissioner – Consulted with the Manitoba Commission.

    I think MAD would say his status is ‘Fan’ right now. I would say he is is taking a well-earned hiatus.

    Gatlin…please fill the people in on your accomplishments with MMA in this country and your current status.

    If you don’t understand how I am or was involved in MMA why are you questioning me with this wierd passive aggressive tone?

    The current law doesn’t have amateur MMA defined, so each province or body that chooses to do amateur have varying opinions on how it works.

    manitoba doesn’t sanction amateur due it not being defined in the criminal code so amateur pro doesn’t make a big difference.

    In a place that only sanctions pros, without an amateur option, lower level pros could definitely fight as an amateur in the new year when the federal code is revamped and all the wording is agreed to.

    My question was more in relation to whether the Saskatchewan commission allows pros to fight as an amateur or not.

    Where this guy trains has no relevance to anything. Kinda like your place in MMA. You aren’t relevant and never will be.

    How exactly do I kiss up to Wamma? I trained there for a few years about 5 years ago, have known Curtis for a long time and have all the respect in the world for him, what he does for the sport, and how he runs his club, but I’ve been more affiliates with the CFC gym for th past 4 years so not sure why anybody would think I kiss up to a club I’m not a part of baffles me. I think it’s more a testament to your level of knowledge of MMA in manitoba.

    I was a founder of Top MMA news, and left when I got a job with the fight network April of 2011. It’s a site that I will always be proud of , a part of, and a place I would contribute any way I can.

    What are you trying to imply? That I made that up?

    I claim you are an idiot and should do some homework before you talk such stupidity.

    When’s your next show?

  21. Orest Zmyndak says:

    Part of the problem may be with the recordkeepers. The one that the commissions use have Elijah Richards as Eli Richard fighting pro on July 28 in The Pas as a pro and then as an amateur in Lethbridge on Oct 6. Sherdog only has him as Elijah Richards with one amateur fight in Lethbridge. The Lethbridge Commission should have caught the pro fight when they did a suspension check.

    eli isnt a pro, he wouldnt go pro his first mma fight, he fought a good fight last night, and he executed the game plan perfectly, if all this is true then gatlin is too blame, for throwing someone in there with no prior martial arts experience with a pro, and not letting eli know what could happen if he took the fight, but none of which should take anything away from his performance last night, i believe they were two evenly matched fighters, eli just hurt him first and finished, good performance and hats off to eli for the impressive victory

  26. I agree @Orest. The official record keepers at are brutal. I remember trying to look up Brad Duguay’s record one time. He was under Brad, Bradley, and Drad Duguay. I see they have at least combined Brad and Bradley now.

    In Gatlins defence, who says you cant plan a show in 24 hours… who says you cant matchmake the day of weigh ins… who says you cant trick guys into fighting for pennies and convince them they are amateurs and not pros… who says you cant matchmake the worst events in mma history… common guys who says?

    In Manitoba there is no amateur MMA!

    Jamie Micheals fight 5 years ago was considered amateur until someone cried about the entire card because they didn’t have their greasy little fingers in it.

    Elijah Edwards should be considered an amateur.

    the first CFC cards matchmaker was MAD….all winnipeg fighters won! Hmmmmmm.

    MAD manages Robin Black and got him a title fight when he had a record of 1 win 3 losses….Robin’s opponent for the title fight was???? Oh yeah I remember it was against the same fighter that he had his only win against! Did Robin ever defend that title? NOPE

    The pas card was a joke. Kids training in the basement, or in kfc parking lot and being on te card. And it’s not fair for anyone to criticize Eli. He is a good young fighter. Gatlin is clearly the Stevan Seagal of Manitoba.

    Not sure what the big deal is here…Elijah fought his FIRST fight with the understanding he was fighting another newbie in MMA…I heard Gatlin say that his bout was amateur…Elijah just started training this past summer…he was told he was fighting an amateur fight, he was not paid a penny for this “pro”fight…and he competed in two more amateur fights since then…he is an amateur fighter and will continue to fight as such as he learns the sport and gets better…don`t make a big deal out of nothing.

    WAMMA went 3-1 by my count on the night. So that’s a pretty decent result.

    That’s a douchebag comment about Oliviero. Seemed like a nice kid, that went out there and tested himself. Took a lot of punishment and kept going for subs until the end where it was just too much. Richards ground and pound looked good.

  41. Jamie Miachaels fought on an unsanctioned show 5 years ago. What are you talking about somebody not having their greasy little fingers in it?

    I agree, Elijah should be considered an amateur. But the fact is he’s currently licensed as a pro in Manitoba for 2012.

    Glad you have the history of the CFC down, only you must have missed the first show as Mark Holst defeated Dave Zuniga in the main event. I wasn’t the easiest matchmaker for our locals.

    Robin had a 1-2 record when we got the offer to fight for the title in Moncton. I had an american coming up to fight Robin on CFC 1 and we lost him with about 10 days before the event. I brought in Stephane Poirier from moncton for that bout. Robin won, and few months later they offered us a rematch they could prepare for.

    Wouldn’t that imply i’m a decent manager? :)

    Appreciate your concerns anonymous person.

  42. BJC, you are correct, the OCN band is who was putting on the show, with Gatlin Church as the promoter. I say The Pas so it wouldn’t confuse as many people.

    CBrown……not sure what you are hoping to accomplish with your comment about Wamma. It is not fair, accurate nor warranted. You have been made welcome to train at one of Curtis’ affiliate clubs and I won’t have you bash him nor any of his fighters. Curtis is a class act both personally and professionally and he does not tolerate these poor attitudes amongst his club…..and we will follow suit. Come see one of us if you wish to train any further. If you still feel this way about his fighters, I am sure he could line something up for you to prove otherwise. Eli had a win in a legitimate fight and I don’t think your comments do anything to support him in the sport. If you have any class, the next thing you should type in this forum is an apology.

    The promotor of this show (AJ Scales) didn’t trick anyone. He put on a great amateur show. There’s a debate as to whether a couple of the fighters had fought pro previously, AJ certainly didn’t “trick” anyone into going from pro to amateur.

    Hey guys,

    I want to make a few short comments in regards to the Elijah Richards bout.

    The Saskatchewan Martial Arts Association did a great job in regards to this particular situation.

    Minutes prior to the fight they were informed of the possibility that Elijah had fought pro. Coaches, promoter and SMAA were all pulled to the side to discuss the matter.

    The result was this;

    1. Elijah fought in Alberta October 7, 2012 on a Pro, AM card as a amateur.

    2. The Lethbridge commission could not find any record of Elijah fighting as a professional and licensed him to continue to fight as a amateur.

    3. There had been two MMA cards held in Manitoba near The PAS, Manitoba. Both were assumed to be Pro/AM cards.

    One for sure I know that the Manitoba Commission had brought in the SMAA to over see the amateur portion of the card.

    4. Now, its my under standing that Elijah and Coach were under the impression that Elijah is an amateur fighter and will be until he has enough experience to move to the next step. And had never been told he was fighting as a professional or received payment to fight.

    5. The SMAA did a great job on catching the fact that there was an issue and did a EXCELLENT job dealing with myself, the fighter and the coach.

    And here is a quick comment on the Sam King and Ian Oland bout. Both fighter weighed in with in a range of weight for the bout to happen.

    That’s it guys.
