Canadian Rumour Mill – March 25
A double dosage of Aggression on Saturday night seems to have come off successfully, with both shows having exciting action and with AFC crowning Curtis Brigham as their Bantamweight champion and Razak Al-Hassan as their Light-Heavyweight champion. Also, after catching much heat and criticism for their internet streams, AFC has now had two very successful streamed shows in a row. AFC 15 from Calgary last week and AFC 17 from Edmonton this past weekend. All in all, a pretty good weekend for the Aggressors!
- Ford “Funkatron” Robertson is back at Alliance in Saskatoon and looking to scrap in May!
- Xtreme Couture will not be putting on a show in Ontario. Word is that the high cost of running a show in Ontario has killed this project!
- Congrats to Adrian Vilaca who stayed unbeaten (2-0) by defeating Kyosuke Yokoyama by unanimous decision at Big John’s in Northern Michigan.
- Elias Theodorou will take on Mike Kent at ECC on May 11 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Now that is a tasty scrap!
- Edmonton’s next Aggression Fighting Championship show will have two AFC title fights! Razak Al-Hassan will defend his newly awarded LHW belt against the man he was supposed to fight at AFC 14 in November of 2012, Victor Valimaki! Also, Ryan Ford will fight for the AFC WW strap against a to be named opponent! The way “The Real Deal” has been rolling and delivering beat downs, I would not wanna be the top be named opponent!
- Ryan Ford’s challenger for the vacant title will be decided on the AFC 18 show on May 4th in Victoria.
- Other Aggression dates:
- AFC 19 – Montreal – June TBD
- AFC 20 – Edmonton – July 5
- AFC 21 – Calgary – July 21
- Sheldon Westcott may be out of his Fivestar Fight League fight as he may be out 4-6 weeks with a possible broken ankle that happened in the first round vs Nic Herron-Webb.
- Battle for the Border will hold their second Cranbrook, British Columbia show on June 1st.
- The first Canadians have made it public that they will attend the TUF Tryouts. No surprise that stud muffin Josh Hill is heading down and cutie Erin McDougall is another after the number of pro fights for women was dropped to 1 from 3. Do you like Mexican food and also want to help Josh cover his TUF costs? Well go to Mucho Burrito on Upper James in Hamilton and tell’em Josh Hill sent ya! A portion of those sales will go to the “Gentleman” to help with his trip to TUF costs. Yummy!!!
- Boy oh Boy, Kajan Johnson sure was in a bad mood Saturday night watching AFC. He threw out quite a few insults and challenges to the likes of Mitch Clarke, Steve Beaumont, and the Westcott fight. Maybe he’s grumpy because he has not fought in nearly a year and a half? If I may suggest, I’d like less online Ragin and more in cage Ragin! If Kajan is all healed up and ready to go, someone get this big talent a fight!
- Time to hide in your D-Bomb Shelters! As first mentioned in the November 26th edition of the rumour mill, Prestige FC returns in May and Dwayne Lewis will be headlining the show!
