Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – June 3, 2013


Gossip Queen THUMBWell…UFC Winnipeg is coming up soon. Methinks that Top MMA News should hold a get together for TMN fans during UFC 161. After all, Winnipeg is the home of Top MMA News.

  • Advin Omic is a FREE AGENT! Omic’s management and AFC worked it out and now the “Bosnian Bad Boy” is available to all promotions!
  • Congratulations to Victor Cui, CEO of One FC, who took home Man of the Year at the inaugural Asian MMA Awards, as well as his promotion winning Most Exciting Global Promotion. Check out this totally awesome promo video for the show!

  • Looking to buy a machine from the Machine? Contact Canadian MMA legend Mark Hominick who’s now an Account Manager for Xerox! 
  • BJJ Master Shane Rice is looking to get back in action and returning to MMA for a September fight for Elite 1 MMA. Don’t let his 4-3 record fool you, this guy should fight for Robin Black’s vacated Elite 1 Bantamweight title!
  • Justin Primmer is in trouble again for violent crime! I don’t like how the media associates him with the sport of MMA! He’s not a martial artist. Go away!
  • Ryan Brigham made his boxing debut but unfortunately lost via TKO at 1:59 of the first round to Cam O’Connell.

    “Canadian MMA legend Mark Hominick who’s now an Account Manager for Xerox!”

    I would have thought he’d be owning a gym, head instructor somewhere or doing something martial arts related in his retirement. Account manager doesn’t really sound like living the dream for a title contender?

    No disrespect intended, just surprises me is all.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 10 Thumb down 12

    Hominick does own a gym. He runs Adrenaline Training Center which I believe he owns with Horodecki and Stout.

  4. Robin Black says:

    Mark has a business degree and is a workaholic and loves new challenges.

    He’ll be some kind of VP within 36 months.

    And he’s still teaching at Adrenaline and still a reoccurring analyst on Showdown’s show mine n Ramdeen’s show 5 Rounds.

    And he’s the proudest dad to 2 daughters (check out his Facebook it’s all family all the time lol).

    I think he just gets bored easy.

    And he’s one of the most humble nice guys I’ve ever met. Hope he continues success in whatever he does.

    Hey, what ever happened to Ford Robertson? Kid was a hot prospect at 4-0. Beat Derek Boyle and Andrew Buckland… Where’s he been?

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 3

  9. Adam Lorenz says:

    Ford has been hard at work helping run the family business. He is the most impressive athlete I’ve ever seen, hopefully one day he’ll find the time to fight again.

    Drysdale is so good at BJJ I see him catching a few dudes in the UFC

    I predict that Drysdale will be much like Frank Mir at 205. It’ll be great to see such a solid grappler in that weight class that’s very striker heavy
