    First of all, I want to thank Steve Bergeron, Mike Banin, Kyle Vivian and Jordan Preston for helping out Wreck when we needed it. I thought I’d share how the last couple days have been so you get an idea of what happened.

    It has been a huge struggle the last week to make sure we were able to keep Turner on the card. Banin is Turner’s third opponent in about a week and Banin was not confirmed until 1:30am last night.

    Turner’s original opponent could not get his passport and had to be scratched on short (but not unmanageable) notice. His next opponent came from one of the most unprofessional teams I’ve ever dealt with. They decided it was the professional thing to bail from a commitment when someone came with a better offer, without even giving us a chance to do anything about it.

    Then came Antonio Banuelos as we announced. But then without going into details, Banuelos basically changed his mind and pulled out.

    Then after wasting a lot of time, we had a member of Team Quest willing to jump in on short notice. I thank Paul Webb for the willingness to fight but unfortunately he did everything in his power to fight but it wasn’t meant to be this time. I was not made aware that Webb was not on the plane on Wednesday until 6pm yesterday.

    So in a panic, we decided that the best potential option at this point was Mike Banin. Banin accepted a fight with Jordan Preston on short notice and was already travelling to Ottawa. But, we could not leave Preston without a fight, so I made a phone call and Kyle Vivian agreed to fight if we wanted. Without hesitation, Kyle drove in overnight on Tuesday and weighed in today. Call him crazy, but Kyle just loves to fight and was willing to help us out and make sure someone who trained hard for a fight could fight. Preston stepped up to fight Kyle at 140 when his fight with Banin was supposed to be at 130.

    After a long few hours, when Banin’s plane landed at around 11pm yesterday and when his coach arrived to the hotel, I took his coach Steve Bergeron aside and explained the situation. After talking to his fighter, Steve told me that Banin would take the fight and that Mike wanted the fight more than anything. He wanted to test himself against a top fighter from the east. Steve and his fighter Mike stepped up when we really needed it and I really appreciate it. At the same time, it’s a huge fight for Banin and he can get himself noticed at 125.

    Ideally, we would have loved to have the Banuelos fight. I think it would have been a really exciting fight and a great test for Randy. But, I love when fighters like Banin are willing to step up. He is in a no lose situation and it’s a risky fight for Turner. And the fact Banin wanted the fight this bad confirms that he is going to come out looking for the win. Whatever happens, I expect two guys to punch each other in the face and that’s always fun. :)

    I’m sorry, but is this really surprising from the promotion? Go on their website. Who do you see, a pic of two guys that fought over a year ago! Weigh in results? Nope. Updated fight card? Nope. You get what you get.
    Hopefully there will be some good fights.

    Blade Banin will last maybe 2 mins and Kyle Vivian…really? These promoter could have gotten real fighters, but because of their grudges and lack of knowledge, this event will probably be the last for wreck…again

    @ Obviously ….give your head a shake !!! Not to many people in the sport that are more respectful than adrain wooley….when people on the site were taking shots at turner for ducking him he asked people to stop….But I and many others on this site who follow the sport know why turners management didn’t want wooley….but that aside…best of luck to turner
