Canadian Rumour Mill – October 1, 2013
This is how you should do it, gotta love North Dakota. This is what we got for two fighters failing to honour their contracts!
“Please suspend Jarrett Cook ID 132-627 and Benny Katso dob 4-15-1980 for 90 days from 9-13-2013 for failure to honor a signed contract. ” Who’s your daddy?!?!?
- Congrats to Mitch Gagnon who received his BJJ Purple Belt, hopefully that means more Sub of the Nights!
- This one’s interesting. People in attendance at Prestige Fight Club’s unsanctioned Weyburn show this past weekend passed along an announcement made at the event that the next show in 2014 will be broadcast on Fox. Hmm…
- By the way, no charges have been laid by police for the unsanctioned Saskatchewan show as of yet. Let’s see if fighters get suspended.
- Unfortunately, injuries have forced Hardeep Singh to retire.
- Back in the day there was this little bad ass, Chad Hamzeh, who beat the likes of Curtis Brigham and Kajan Johnson. Well that guy is back, over seven years after he last competed! Chad Hamzeh will finally return to action and face Noah Ali on December 14 at XFFC! Great to see a pioneer like him back!
- Ultimate Grudge Match Alert!!! Victor Valimaki and Marcus Hicks will finally face off at KOTC “Anger Therapy” over six years after they were originally set to meet at MFC 12 in June of 2007. Back then there was a ton of heat between the two but the fight was called off less than an hour before show time due to Hicks getting injured back stage. Well the heat hasn’t cooled off any and the two still don’t like one another! Hopefully some fists to the face will settle some of their differences on October 25th in Edmonton.
- Marc-Andre Drolet is teaming up with Ken Kupsch on the next two upcoming KOTC Canada shows. Edmonton on October 25th and Cold Lake on November 15.
- You know you missed him cuz Real recognizes Real! Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford’s arm is back to 100% and now he’s looking to give someone an E-Town Beatdown in mid-January or early February!
- I guess Lyndon Whitlock slimmed down a bit and is taking his bad mama jama self from Featherweight down to Bantamweight! I have word that this slide down in weight is official!
- Look for a bunch of Bowman’s crew to appear on KOTC Cold Lake on November 15th. Teddy Ash 185lbs, Ben Jansen 135lbs, Sarah McRann 125lbs, Ryland Coventry 125lbs, Steve Dubeck 170lbs, and Travis Cardinal 170lbs
- Rematch Time! Blake Nash and Lenard Terrance are going to go at it one more time, this time at Challenge MMA! They just wanna bang bro!
