Canadian Rumour Mill – May 13, 2013

Well, we ALMOST had “Ragin” Kajan Johnson back to action. Kajan, who’s been out of action since MFC 31 in October of 2011, had accepted to fight UFC vet Jason Dent on June 1st. But Dent seemingly was not as eager to take on Johnson and seemingly decided to go a different route. Where does that leave us? With one of Canada’s best Lightweight talents sitting on the shelf waiting for a fight, sigh!

  • Speaking of long layoffs, how about nearly three years! Good news, wait no longer as Ryan “The Lion” Diaz is finally back in action as he takes on Yusup Saadulaev at One FC 9 on May 31st in the Philippines!
  • Former boxing world champion Ricardo Mayorga’s win over Canadian Wesley Tiffer has been taken away.  The Nicaraguan MMA commission has overturned the decision to a No Contest and suspended Mayorga.
  • Anna Barone will compete in Florida for Championship Fighting Alliance on May 24th taking on Ashlee Evans-Smith (1-0).
  • Canada’s MMA Amazing Race’s is moving on from Ontario and its next stop is Vancouver, British Columbia. This untapped MMA hotbed is about to become open for professional MMA business by the end of May once the provincial commission starts up. Top MMA News has heard that both AFC and the MFC are looking into putting on summer shows in Vancouver and we imagine that Battlefield Fight League’s Jay Golshani must be knocking on the commission’s door as well. Who will be first? 


  • The inaugural Challenge MMA event was a success, so promoter Gary Chartrand will be holding Challenge MMA 2 on August 17 ​​at the Centre Pierre Charbonneau in Montreal. Look for Olivier Aubin-Mercier, who had Theo Toney pull out late from their Challenge MMA 1 fight, and Aiemann Zahabi to be on the card.
  • When Metallica comes to town Nothing Else Matters and that is why Xcessive Force Fighting Championship (XFFC) will push their second show up a week to July 20 as to not compete with the legendary band.
  • Sheldon Westcott’s next fight will most likely be at Middleweight and probably for Aggression. Two weight cuts in two months is enough so Westcott will give his body a break and fight at 185. Having seen Sheldon Westcott in action, I’m sure he’ll still be in sexy shape for his 185lbs bout.
  • Jon Henderson knocked out his opponent, Gustavo Rodriguez, in the 2nd round at Road 2 Glory USA this past weekend.

    Thoughts, by Donald P. Duck.

    1. This may mark the first time the word ‘whomever’ has been correctly used in an MMA forum.

    2. Hague was a fat mess in the Wardog fight but he did KO Craig in the first round.

    3. Sean Quinn is adorable.

    PS – The P stands for Pendergast.

    OK guys…enough Hague bashing…the rematch be tween Craig and Tim will happen if Tim wins his next 2 fights and then wins in Aug. In Five star against opponent…. And Craig defeats Peck in October…also Tim and I had discussed it …so if it all goes the way we plan and Tim plans that rematch could be in winter or early spring…depending on Fivestar…So get of Tims back…at least he made it to the UFC… Most if not all of the fighters that come on here have not!

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 10

    Oops ment to thumb you down BTP!!!! I do some Tim Bashing on here but just cause Wardog has a belt don’t let it get to your head. If Tim gets 3 more wins if I was him would go for a bigger name the Craig he already knocked Craig out. What does that fight do for him 3 more wins from now??? Wish I could give you 10 Thumbs down for that.
