Canadian Rumour Mill – April 29, 2013
The good news just keeps coming for TJ Grant! Big congrats to possible UFC title challenger TJ Grant who has a new baby girl, Casey Maria Grant!
- Well I guess The Godfather made him an offer he couldn’t refuse as Joe Doerksen will headline CFC 8 on September 13th! CFC Fighting Center fighters Agostino DeNatale, Jon Henderson, Travis Gervais, David Quangvan, and more are scheduled to fight on the card as well. Another rumoured fighter ‘The Black Wolf‘ was heard asking how the Italian food is at Winnipeg Convention Centre? Good. Try the veal, it’s the best in the city!
- Tasty Bantamweight rumour! Aggression Fighting Championship is waiting to announce that Josh Hill will challenge AFC Bantamweight King Curtis Brigham if Hill does not make the cut for The Ultimate Fighter 18. This is a potential AFC champion vs Aggression MMA champion unification bout.
- You won’t believe some of the real life drama on FightXchange that debuts on Superchannel on May 3rd at 8:30pm ET. As we mentioned last week, Mike Imperato didn’t fight on the series. It turns out that his issues started following some comments he made to a fellow fighter/teammate that did not go over well. You’ll have to watch the TV series to find out what went down.
- Andrew Cseh will take on Jordan Espinosa (2-0) at Rocktagon MMA on May 4th in Cleveland, Ohio! Andrew will have many places to check out when he visits Cleveland as advertised in this “official” tourism video. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZzgAjjuqZM).
- So we have Adrian Woolley and Randy Turner battling it out at Flyweight for Substance Cage Combat on June 29th, well I’m also hearing possibly Alex Ricci, Vanja Vojvodic, Elias Theodorou, Todd Stoute, Jason Meisel, and Malcolm Gordon! Grant Bros are involved in a good looking show!
- Charmaine Tweet will be fighting Amanda Bell at Battle at the Border 2 on June 1st in beautiful Cranbrook, BC!
- The Moncton Boxing & Wrestling Commission is really a family affair. Roger Doiron refs, Paul Doiron judges, and Ray Doiron is a recording secretary. Oh yeah…Gerry Doiron was the chairman of the MBWC for over 20 years before his retirement.
- Allen Hope is taking MMA back to his hometown of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Hope Fighting Championship will have an event at the Mariner Centre on July 6th. I’m hearing Jeremy Henry, Dave Henry, Adam Assenza, Jeremiah Bernard, Joel Jacquard, Ryan Potter, Cory Comeau and Mitch Muise are among the fighters committed to the card.
- ECC is still looking for opponents for Gavin Tucker and Mike Malott for their May 11th show. Only 2 weeks out though, that’s tough!
- Two young studs will battle it out during Stampede Days in Calgary! Keegan Oliver will make his pro Flyweight debut at AFC 20 against Kyle Oliveira at 125lbs!
- Elite 1 may be doing their next show the same weekend as the CFL game in Moncton between Montreal and Hamilton on September 21st! Although both events won’t occur concurrently, this is still a big event to compete against on the same day!
- Circle May 24 on your calendar! That is the tentative date for Bill S-209 to be voted on for the third and final time in the House of Commons. Third time is the charm for a bill to become law !
