Canadian Rumour Mill – December 3
Well it’s now officially the Holiday Season, but I sure don’t get that warm and fuzzy feeling when I come to Top MMA News. Boy oh Boy, there are some angry and vile remarks going back and forth recently.
Time to take a chill pill guys or else Santa will only be “gifting” you lumps of coal.
- Ryan Machan will return to the cage on Jan 25 in Calgary for Hard Knocks. Jason Gorny and Matt Krayco may possibly be squaring off on HK30.
- Mitch Fryia improved to 2-2 defeating Kelly True by 1st round submission at Rumble on the Border in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan this weekend. Two amateur fighters from Steel City MMA also competed on the card – Owen Martin (win) & Josh Deluco (loss).
- On the same card, Ho Shin Sool Martial Arts fighters went two for three – Trevor Dowhaniuk took a loss, while Dalton Macfarlane and Nick Naccarato won. Other Canadians who were victorious were David Firlotte and Kyle Custer-Jones. All in all, a very successful night for Canadians defending our Border! :)
- Alex Halkias improved to 3-0 defeating Zhang Huipeng, while Albert Cheng fell to 2-2 losing to Kleber Koike at Real Fight Championship 1 at a 65kg bout in Zhengzhou, China.
- Chase Degenhardt is writing a book on his MMA story, check out an excerpt here: https://docs.google.com/

- Mike Kent is fighting for the Middleweight Title at ECC 15 on February 16.
- After breaking his arm ground and pounding Tony Hervey, Jorge Britto has had his surgery and had his first BJJ training session last week. Jorge is already looking to get back into the cage. Hopefully he gets another chance to pound out Hervey!
- Promising Middleweight fighter KB Bhullar has signed on with Aggression Fighting Championship for three more fights.
- Krzysztof Soszynski is moving to Torrance, California to be the coach of the new UFC gym there.
- There are thoughts about Brandt Dewsbery dropping to LW for his next fight. Elias Theodorou is considering moving to WW.
- Congrats to David Lea and Team Toshido who will be moving to a new training facility. The new facility will be just under 6,000 sq/ft and have over three times the mat space of their old place and will include an octagon. Looks like it’s going well for them.
- Mike Ricci will take on Neil Magny in the semis of TUF after defeating Mike Hill via unanimous decision.
- Luke Harris is looking to sharpen up his skills for his upcoming February MFC fight with some training at Tristar MMA.
