Congrats to the Queen of Canada who is now a UFC fighter! Couldn’t have happened to a nicer lady!

  • Could the Canadian WW division be getting a shot of Brock Jardine? We need the Pink Panther on the case to see if Jardine is a Canadian boy or not…
  • I’m sure I wasn’t the only one wondering with AFC having all these shows when Aggression would go back to one of its home bases, Victoria and hold a show. Well the answer to that question seems to be May of this year.
  • Cubicle to the Cage will have its finale on March 9th on ECC 16 in Halifax. Look for Andrew Quigley vs Boyd Sharpe (CTTC), Steve Goodfellow (CTTC) vs Josh Walker.
  • Elmer Waterhen is not only training for a title fight at KOTC Monster Smash in Edmonton April 5 but he’s also a full time student at the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology, as well as running for council on his Reservation.
  • Matt Veal will challenge Cameron Ramberg (7-0) for his 145lbs belt for Dakota Fighting Championship on their 15th show on April 20th in Fargo.
  • John Alessio will return to combat sports but in the boxing ring on March 15th at the River Rock Casino in Richmond BC! Also on the card, former CFL #1 draft pick and All Star Adam Braidwood (1-0).
  • MMA in Lingerie coming to Edmonton? Rumours are Shaun Donnelly is bringing a Lingerie Fighting Championship (LFC) team to Edmonton.
  • Oops!  Rumour last week was that the Calgary Commission was being contracted to run Red Deer’s Penhold Commission.  That rumour was a swing and a miss!

    Horrible for the sport as everyone get second chances however it kind of depends on the crime. As a job won’t hire you fighting is a job but there are no guide lines that state you can’t have an outrageous criminal record to compete.

  6. fellas! fellas! fells! before you girls get your panties in a bunch Braidwood is being hired to fight, hes not being hired to run a fortune 500 company, be your investment advisor or perform open heart surgery on your dear uncle Jeb, least we forget those with worse criminal felonies and were still alowed to reform themselves through the commitment, disapline and perserverance gained through the pugilistic arts eg. iron mike tyson, bernard hopkins, montreals hilton bros,…the list goes on and on and lets not forget Mr Gdup frum da feet up!!

    I wouldn’t say most guys would have a record. In fact I don’t think anyone I train with in red deer would have a criminal record for something violent. I can only think of one guy with a record and it was a dui. Your generalizing way to many people, I disagree completely with your statement Tron.

    Dear Big Poop-ah,

    Nice examples except those guys all take it on the chin here on a regular basis. Are you suggesting that MMA should lower its morally acceptable standards cause someone is punching another person in the face as opposed to doing something societally acceptable?

    This Duck won’t.

    Adam is a big boy and knows the rules.

    He can now accept that we’ll call him a dirt bag and not support shows he fights on.


    PS – All this talk of this dip shit and not one mention of Mr. Dekkar today. Sad IMO.

  12. Donald Duck says:

    Thanks Josh, we haven’t talked in a while but you may gave seen the Duck fight. I for one not only enjoy punching people in the face but also don’t have a criminal record.

    Maybe that’s why I retired, couldn’t keep up the MMA image without a lengthy criminal record….

    Wait, that wasn’t it.

    At the gym Adam was a very polite and had absolutely no ego. I sparred with him and he even asked if I could hold pads for him a few times, he listened and took any criticism in stride. I did not know him away from the gym nor would I say we were friends. Adam had a lot of athletic ability and hit very hard. As to his criminal activity ….. I do not support it or approve of it.

  15. Dear Diddles the duck, though i do not agree with or support any of adams or any other felons criminal activity, the sad truth is that our legal system is so flawed that no matter how long you incarcerate them ,sooner rather than later these and other individuals will be set free upon the open market, and i would rather see them vent their rage and agression within the confines of the ring or octagon rather then upon the cranium of some unsuspecting young intoxicated 18year kid as hes celebrateing his coming of age party in one of our many local watering holes. Cheers! now whos your Big Poppa!!
