Canadian Rumour Mill – September 3, 2013
Let’s kick off this week by congratulating Sean Quinn and his wife on the arrival of their baby boy, Aeden! Hopefully he grows up with more of Hajar’s characteristics and less of that little gnome Sean’s.

- World Series of Fighting will not be coming to Canada in October, but don’t worry guys, they are still definitely coming to The Great White North!

- Canada’s Nordine Taleb plus MFCer Dhiego Lima and former Bellator champ Lyman Good all attended TUF 19 tryouts in Indianapolis! Typing Dhiego Lima’s name made me wonder, is that guy still with MFC as it’s been a year since we’ve since him compete in the MFC ring! Cough…, Nathan Coy… cough, cough.
