    Teddy sounds like more of a douch than booboo, but not as douchy as pavelich

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 3 Thumb down 6

  2. Just thought I would put some things in perspective. Zach B messaged me asking for a 205 fight on this card. At the same time Teddy’s coach asked if we had a pro fight for Teddy. Only pro option was Zach. I took a chance and Teddy Immediately accepted. Zach’s management didnt message me for a couple of days and Teddy started some playful banter to entice Zach to accept. Zach’s management declined the fight and Carter’s opponent had dropped out so both parties accepted an amateur fight. Mad respect to Teddy for stepping up. Terick Carter is one of the most gifted athletes I have met. He played University football in the maritimes and his athletic prowess showed during the filming of “make me a fighter”. These guys just want to fight and fight they will Feb 22.

    Is someone going to explain the whole amateur sanctioning in Edmonton?

    Nope, that would require accountability.

    All I know about it is that Andy Social and Bill Mahood were overseeing the amateurs at the Make Me A Fighter finale and I assume it’ll be the same for this event.

    I could be wrong but this looks to be their website and I think it has been expanded to include Alberta (although that has not been reflected on the website).

    @Cody – As per their website:

    “MMABC works with athletes, coaches, gyms, event promoters and officials to foster a safe environment for the growth of Amateur Mixed Martial Arts in the Province of British Columbia.”
    – Their mission statement is BC specific. I don’t doubt there could be some consulting going on but as per above I don’t know that they have sanctioning ability/authority outside of BC.

    MMABC helps ensure athlete safety by also providing “3rd party regulatory oversight”.
    – This is the specific bit that talks about this but note the word ‘oversight’. This means to oversee or supervise and I don’t take that to mean ‘sanction’.

    Advice is great but from a legal perspective what protection are the Amateur fighters in Edmonton being given?

    Like I said… I don’t know much about the amateur situation in Edmonton, and the website doesn’t seem to have been updated in quite a while and I believe they just recently expanded to Edmonton with the “Make Me A Fighter” series being the first event I’ve seen Bill Mahood and the MMABC involved in!

    Nobody wants too see you fight Bodwell. For real. You will come out swinging like a crazy man, then get tapped out with ease. Learn some Jitz. And MMA. You suuuuuuck.

    UPDATE: Jesse Fox out due to knee injury, it’s unclear if Eric Wilson will remain on the card.
