    Great card, awesome fights, very well run and professional promotion…except for the unfair and suspect point deductions, especially to Robb, without any warnings…coincidently they were against Ontario fighters. Experience doesn’t necessarily mean you are qualified or educated to referee or represent the commission. Andy Social definitely damages Alberta’s credibility

  9. hasslehoff says:

    Not to mention, Social was also involved in the horrible time keeping error, resulting in overturning a fight decision between Ries/Smith, which is only another black eye against the commission

    The time keeping mistake was in a different city so has nothing to do with gp commission but besides the fact I’d agree with you the point taking Away should have been a warning first specially when it happened 9min into the fight.

  16. hasslehoff says:

    I’m guessing some of the commissions did not have a fighters complete fighting record, so they wouldn’t have known certain fighters have lost 4 or 5 in a row. Even with video footage(some available on YouTube), some fights are not listed in databases, pro and amateur. Ontario has the strictest regulations in the country, which can be good for fighter safety but bad for those attempting to run events.

  17. Cody Krahn says:

    @MMA Z, Yeah that’s 4 in a row for me :(

    I don’t wanna come across as sounding butt-hurt. But comparing the way I lose my fights to Bobby’s is kind of a low blow. I stopped taking easy pay days after I fought Shannon Ritch because I wasn’t happy I won beating some broken old man who’s just there for a paycheck.I’ve lost to some pretty legit dudes since then and I like to think that I’ve put up a pretty good fight against most of them.

    I won’t try to diminish anyone of those losses or make bullshit excuses but after my fight with Kent in february I made the realization I had really fucked around and let my personal life affect decisions I made about work as well as where and who I was training with.

    So I called up some old friends I had been meaning to get together with since we all split up after Cardinal Sports Gym closed down and started training at complete martial arts and fitness. Since that time I feel like I’ve gotten the right help I needed and really improved my game.

    Clay beat me fair and square, he was the better fighter but I still think I was close to finishing him, especially when I was able to land those elbows against the fence. I fought my heart out like every other guy who stepped into that cage that night.

    So no, I don’t see why 4 losses in a row for me should mean I need to be suspended. There’s plenty of guys I could destroy at 185 so I can pad my record but I’d rather lose fight of the night than rely on can crushing to boost my confidence. I’ll know when it’s time to call it quits. But I’m healthy and for the first time in a long time genuinely happy and in the right place both mentally and in my training.

    Thats the end of my gay little bleeding heart speech, thanks to Darren Cliffe and the crew at XFFC for the great opportunity as well as you internet people for giving two flying fucks what some bald ogre does for fun.

    I’m going to go ice my very swollen sore elbow, eat a pile of chinese food and finally catch up on a Breaking Bad marathon with my trophy girlfriend.

  23. GI Jane says:

    I also do not think that the commission should suspend cody after 4 losses. In the fight game guys like cody are indispencible and serve a purpose which is as a stepping stone to guarantee the marquee guy a guaranteed win, to take a fight on short notice or no notice to satisfy the fans of your number one ticket seller or sellers so they keep spending their money and coming back, as was the case in the ash vs special k fiasco or thank god the Westcott vs doty fight which never took place. Individuals like cody will beat your average club fighter like a hicks or a F.O.R (Fresh off the rez.) but fall short against the very good or elite fighters.

    Cody should not be suspended guys entertaining as all fuck ! also a class act, hope to see him back soon cause always enjoy his fights. He shows he has the skills to avoid beatings and is capable of fighting so there is no way that should be considered at all he comes to fight and to win unlike someone like Bobby K. Is on a tough streak but that will stop I am sure, is is losing to only high level guys.

    It’s the fight game Groove. This guy beats that guy, you win lose draw–whatever. As long as ones skills are improving and the fans know your name and want to watch you fight (and your involved in a fight of the night) what’s the problem?

    I have very little respect for guys who rip on fighters especially if they have never experienced the ups and downs a fighter goes through.

    That being said I have more respect for fighters who fight tough fights and lose, as opposed to those who fight once a year and pad their record with opponents right off the Campbell soup isle of the I.G.A, not mentioning any names. To make matters worse these individuals are then in shock n awe as too why joe silva is not breaking down their door with five figure contract in hand.

    Just wanted to say thanks first to Ryan Machan for giving me the tough fight that I expected nothing less than that from him and even more important once again showing what a true martial artist and representative of this sport should be always a pleasure stepping in the cage and also hooking up after wards as frustrating as it is to lose in a strange way it is easier to accept when you know the fighter on the other end is deserving and respectful enough to bough out to. Your team is always class (Advin, Josh, Gary) hope to see you all again soon.

    Also wanted to thank Darren for putting together a great well organized show and giving me the chance to step up and fight one of the top 170 fighters in our country.

    Can anyone give one example of a ref deducting a point from an accidental groin shot without any warning? How often do fighters get hit in the groin and when has a point ever been taken away? All points deducted this event were against Ontario fighters. Clearly bias is being shown time and time again. If they can’t win honestly, train harder.

    For putting on this show, they put on one of the best shows Alberta has ever had.

    A big thanks to Nathan Gunn for the fight,
    You sir are a stand up gentlemen and it was a Hounor to
    Be in the cage with you and share beers after,

    Hopefully promotions in alberta will continue using fighters from Ontario, these guys have such a hard time getting fights
    And there is so many great match ups for them.
    Gunn vs omic or westcott or even maxwell.
    Laprise vs Campbell or southern.

    Just my thoughts.

  41. kid lightning says:

    AJ…. you needed way more hugs growing up.

    As for the referee/point deduction issue, the refs stated in the rules meeting that they weren’t necessarily going to be looking to give warnings even if it was the first infraction. They said they would determine whether a point be deducted based on how they feel it impacted the round/fight. This was made clear to all fighters, coaches and corners. I am not saying i agree with all of the calls but just explaining why they were made.
    It’s left to the refs discretion, much like a judges decision which we dont always agree with.

    As for Gunner on the other hand… keep fighting. Theres never been a boring Nathan Gunn fight. He fights because he loves it and wants to entertain fans and test himself.
    If you only want to see “UFC calibre” fighters that “walk” through Spratt then just watch the UFC.

    Xcessive put on a great show and treated fighters very well and congrats to all the fighters.

    Slick triangle Ryan.

    Advin Omic is cute too!

    OK OJ I will bite,

    First if the highlight of my fight career involves winning a fight against Mr Pete Spratt for 9m40sec and getting punched once or winning 9m50sec against a tough opponent in Bellator before getting arm barred or being ahead on all card for 9min10sec before making a mistake and losing to Ryan Machan then you know what yes sir I can definatly look back and be some what happy with my fight “career” (as YOU called it)but just to let you know my uneducated ass is far to busy working in a pretty up there career for a living and taking care of my family to be all that concerned about what you think is my high point of my career.

    But by all means OJ what is the high point of your career?

    Now back to enjoying some fabulous beverages, please don’t keep me waiting for more entertaining posts on your behalf :)

    Aj-your 100% entitled to your opinion about reffing and point deductions, but bad mouthing or down playing Nathan Is uncalled for. Bellator will have Nathan again i’m sure. from my understanding he was winning the fight til the triangle so Gunn will be back and better then before. As for him losing to spratt, That was honestly one the best fights in canadian mma that year and Nathan was winning the fight til he got caught. EVERYONE who has fought enough has gotten caught or will get caught.
    I’m not Nathans best friend or even a guy he hangs out with out side of the limited cage time i’ve had with him, so there’s no bias with this. Just be more respectful of vetran canadian fighters who put in their time no matter where in canada they’re from
