Canadian Rumour Mill – April 22


Gossip Queen AssThink we have commission problems??? Hear of Wade Vierra?  Well, Wade runs Vierra’s Martial Arts – the only Cesar Gracie affiliated gym in Sacramento.  Oh yeah… he is the only one of the three judges to award the UFC on FOX 7 main event decision to the Cesar Gracie-trained Gilbert Melendez.   Now the fight was very close and many saw it going Melendez’s way, but one would think that having someone that is affiliated to the gym Melendez represents is a little bit of a conflict of interest… lol, I guess the CSAC didn’t. Hmm?!?!?!

  • “The Man of” Steele has an opponent for World Series of Fighting 3 – he’ll be facing another submission machine in Steve Carl. Carl is 19-3 with 14 of those wins coming via submission. Tyson will have to employ his Hulk Smash tactics again to win this fight!
  • The B.C. government has approved a regulation setting May 30 as the effective date for the Athletic Commissioner Act to come into force and for the BC Athletic Commissioner to begin operations. Maybe we’ll have fights in Vancouver!

  • Let me introduce you to AFC’s The Fight Fan Faction (  Through this project one can support a fighter through a paypal donation and if over $50 is donated, you’ll receive a signed AFC t-shirt as well as a poster and certificate. This seems like an Aggression specific version of what we talked about a few weeks ago in Fund a Fighter and how you could get some cool stuff by supporting/sponsoring your favourite fighter… Fund a Fighter meet your competition – Fan Faction!
  • Remember Super Channel was producing a show called ‘Fight Xchange’ ? Three Brazilian and Three Canadian fighters trained in Toronto (Evolucao Thai) and Brazil (Nova Uniao).  The three Brazilians (Felipe Olivieri, Daniel Almeida, Claudia Gadelha) fought in Canada at WRECK MMA, while the three Canadians (Nate Stark, Michael Imperato, Kara Kirsh) were supposed to fight in Brazil. Unfortunately, Imperato never fought. I can’t wait to find out the reason when the series finally premieres in May !
  • Matt Veal lost his fight in North Dakota this past weekend, losing to Cameron Ramberg (8-0) via RNC at 2:59 of the 1st round.
  • Mitch Clarke will be spending the next month and a half down at The MMA Lab (Henderson, Escudero, etc) in Arizona to help him prepare for his UFC 161 fight in Winnipeg!
  • If you’re a fan of the hit TV show Arrow, make sure you look for Paul Lazenby on this Wednesday’s episode (April 24). Lazenby will be playing Mr. Robbins and is listed as a stunt actor for the episode!

    Since Carr is so great and “almost made it into TUF” give the man a title shot against Brigham. Lets see how that works out for him.
