Canadian Rumour Mill – February 4


gossipWhen I heard that Score Fighting was no more,
I was sad all the way down to my core.
Their end was a big blow to the sport,
And it left Canada one top promotion short.
I was hoping that the news was a horrible dream,
But had my week brightened when Big Foot knocked out The Reem.

On to my rumours!

  • Tyson Steele will be bringing his Hulk Smash style for MMA back to Vegas, and hopefully this time he is on NBC Sports, when he appears on World Series of Fighting 2 on March 23rd. All aboard! Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaa! Tyson Steele is going off the rails on a Gracie train! Igor?
  • Worried about MMA in Quebec, I might have some good news for you. First, Wreck MMA is kicking things off and coming back on March 28th with a much needed Quebec MMA show. It looks like even more are MMA events are on the horizon as up to four new promotions are lining up for permits with the RACJ. Finally!


  • If a D-Bomb hits in Ft Mac, is it felt in Edmonton?
  • I guess Edmonton needs more MMA promotions… Legends Training Centre will be starting up an amateur MMA promotion, Legends MMA Series. Still not really sure about whether amateur MMA is legal or not, but I guess Legends MMA Series is confident enough in the legality of this situation to go ahead with ammy MMA.
  • Avant Garde will hold a MMA show this year in Sarnia, obviously there will be no working with The Score on this one.   :(
  • You want a fun fight?  How about Syd Barnier vs Dimitri Waardenburg at the Wreck revival show. The crowd will definitely be going home happy after watching that fight!
  • Jesse Fox lost his opponent (Cory Gower) for AFC Contenders 2 and Eric Wilson lost his opponent (Sean Quinn) for Fivestar Fight League 4. So what happened? Well, someone at Aggression FC got all smart on us and decided to pair up the two lone survivors from the injury frate trane that hit the Feb 22nd fights and have the Fantastic Mr. Fox take on Eric “Le’go my leg’oh” Wilson.
  • Jose Rodriguez is out against Stephen Beaumont at AFC Contenders. Tim Jenson replaces Jose at a catchweight of 158lbs.  Anyone else wonder if Jose will ever be back in the cage?  Or anyone from Team Ringshark for that matter!

  • The “real” and unauthorized reason for Sean Quinn dropping out due to injury of the previously mentioned scrap with Eric Wilson? Quinn suffered a mid-body injury while dealing with his morning sickness from him being pregnant with his first child. His body, HIS choice!
  • The Fist of the North Star, Matt Veal, will be looking to continue his utter dominance of the Minnesota MMA scene when he takes on Nick Compton for Driller Fights on March 23rd.
  • So it looks like the competitiveness hasn’t died off in Curtis Demarce and the lack of competition has lead to a whole buncha frustration. And I quote: ” For all the “fighters” out there that play the role that they will fight anyone at any time then when they get offered a fight they say ‘no’ or come up with a excuse. One week later, they complain they can’t find a fight or nothing is going on. If it’s a tough fight, that’s what you want. If its an easy fight, well then its a win. So why be a Coward? For all the so called ‘fighters’ out there that have done this and do it, Justice will be served and I will be taking over this Featherweight Division regardless. Time to put your purse away and grab a pair and step up. You know who you are!”
  • Oh, and Will Romero, Curtis Demarce is looking at you as well. The only reason Curtis Demarce says he “is happy to see the Score closing its doors is that he hopes Will Romero comes to the AFC where he can stop ducking Demarce.” Demarce wants Tristan Johnson and John Fraser as well! Wow, the Demon’s collar is hot as hell!
  • Josh Russell submitted Mike Yackulic and Garrett Curran submitted Andrew Gummer at Submission Ace’s Super Fights. There were a ton more competitors with MMA experience competing at the tournament, but you’ll have to find that info somewhere else cuz I’m not giving it to you!
  • It looks like “Showtime” will get his shot at K-1 redemption on February 28th . Markhaile Wedderburn will be getting his 2nd shot at K-1 glory when he competes for K-1 at the Arnold Sports Festival at Battelle Grand in Columbus, Ohio. Shortly after contract negotiations where complete, “Showtime” may have been heard yelling “I live to see you eat that contract, but I hope you leave enough room for my fist because I’m going to ram it into your stomach and break your goddamn spine!”
  • Brad Blood! Brad Causey and Brad Cardinal will finally square off in a Lightweight duel at Xcessive Force Fighting Championship 1 on March 30th.  Expect, Pride Gym’s CJ Bagg and Jordan Knippelberg to be added to the list of fighters appearing on this Grande Prairie event.
  • From the Yeesh Department: Tank Abbott will take on Warpath on April 13 in the USA.

    So Teddy kuchera , maxwell , Neiss , waterhen and Buckland are all cans at the time I fought them ? Point taken i guess it should have read silva , Weidman , Belfort and bisping . I don’t come on here and pretend to be someone I am not ! I believe it was well matched ever fight I took. As for you comments of being scared , yes I am scared to fight you who is 0 – 0 , yet I’m fighting your training partner who has 20 + fights . Make sense ? Listen take some advice go to the gym , eat your vitamins and climb the ladder like everyone else ! This is all I got to say about that !
    Side note : if your ever in the edmonton area , come to complete or franks and ill be happy to let you punch my face.

  3. Cody Krahn says:

    Being called out by an ammy fighter is kinda like being challenged by the drunkest guy in the bar. Sure you could go in there and beat the living shit out of him but how proud of an accomplishment would that really be?

    You wanna fight Zach? How bout winning some fights and calling him out on the microphone like anybody else would.

    I didn’t mean 1 win and 3 loses. I meant 1-3 fights. So like, 1 or 2 or even 3 fights. Those are the guys you will be fighting.

    I’m embarrassed to be from the east coast with these two clowns Ted and mike chirping.

    Ted, I hope your not ignorant enough to think you can bang with real pros who have 10 fights after just sparring with a few in training. It’s a whole different ball game.

    Blabber would be an idiot to fight him. Fans don’t want to see it, commission would probably reject it and Zach will get slammed hard for it (like robin black is)

    But in some way I wish Zach would lay a dirty beating on Ted

    hahaha i guess ammy fighters are just a joke then ? just like drunk guys at bars that think theyre tough.. well i had to start somewhere in the sport, and i work my fuckin ass off every night and make progress each day. so wateevr me and blaber wont be fighting, but you’ll see me on cards and we’ll see what happens :)

    no disrespect to Blaber, i was just hoping he’d get pissed and take the fight still.. good luck to him with his career

  12. mike kent says:

    Glad i embarrass you and the whole east coast demitri becuase i post online about MMA. The great thing about COMPETING in MMA is that after you run your mouth you get a chance to back it up sometimes you do and in my last fight even thogh i put out a decent effort sometimes you eat your words and fists .

    Im a fighter and i will be keeping very active this year and from now on. I dont belittle or down talk my opponents , me and cody have had a few little trash talking sessions ( alot of that was egged on by the MFC wanting a fued ) but i have nothing but respect for cody as a fighter and a person and look foward to a great fight. i never trash talked chemilli or any other opponent . 90 percent of the time i get in arguements on here its talking about a issue im not involved with.

    I stand behing what i say on here and if that makes you ashamed then dont read my comments or dont watch my fight. It takes all types of personalitys to make a sport interesting . i chose my road and its landed me great opporntunities and has gotten my name out there big time. Ive made a conncious effort not to engage in battles and beefs any more becuase its not neccessary.

    Even you have to admit im quite known coast to coast for a martimes bum with no legit wins. Any publicity is good punlicity right ?

    Hi all,

    Mike’s Chest Tattoo (you know the green thing that looks like a surprised cat). Just wanted to say you guys should be nicer to Mike. Me and Neck Tattoo were talking the other day and just feel that all the negativity these days has really made it hard for people to punch each other in the face out of love.

    One love y’all.

    Let’s get together and have a fight!

    Good to see Westcott getting back in the ring and going after some tougher competitors, oh wait a minute. Can’t find the guy on Sherdog. 2-2 with barely 7 rounds of experience….

    I’m sure if Sheldon beats him he’ll be hanging from the top of the cage like he just KO’d GSP.

    Way to stay on top Westcott!!!

    So you’re saying you think you fight better guys than him? He has one questionable fight. His opponents records add up to 62 wins and 45. He has had 9 fights total.
    Haters hate because they’re insecure.

    Way to pull out stats. 65 wins and 45 losses. Lol. Thomas Denny, the most experienced and toughest guy he fought, the guy who most of the 65 wins you used in your stats, was old, over the hill, and finished fighting. I could fight and beat Mohamed Ali tomorrow, but that wouldn’t put me into contention for the HW title of the world. I’m surprised Sheldon hasn’t called out Evan Tanner
