Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – October 22, 2013
Let’s start things off with a big congrats to Bibiano Fernandes for unifying the ONE FC titles and bringing them back to British Columbia!
As for this week’s rumours, I am starting to heare who might have made TUF Nations, some XFFC news, some WSOF clarifications, and I even fit in a little MMA/Porn news.
- I’m guessing Luke Harris will not be fighting for an MFC belt any time soon, as it sounds like he may have made TUF Nations!
- Derek Boyle will take on Paulo Azambuja at XFFC 3 in Grande Prairie on December 14th at 170lbs.
- Robin Black will be back in the cage at XFFC 3: Out Cold in a rematch with Matt Knysh. Last fight was an ear popping good time, so caution to those with cageside seats, this could get messy!
- Battlefield Fight League is back at it December 7th in Coquitlam, BC! BFL 26 will be headlined by Matt Dwyer defending his Welterweight Title. Andre da Silva makes his pro debut and the pro/am show will feature three more title fights!
- Chris Horodecki will now be fighting Frank Caraballo at PFC this weekend since Jason Dent pulled out.
- Kara Kirsh, from Fight Xchange, was scheduled to battle it out with Randa Markos on the PFC card, but the Ontario Commission in all its wisdom (what is the sarcasm emoticon, I am not good with those), did not approve this fight.
- Despite reports of a Gerald Harris versus Sheldon Westcott matchup on the WSOF 7 card, that fight will not be on the Dec 7 card.
- I’m hearing there will be 6 WSOF events in Canada, not the original 10 that was bandied about.
- A new Tristar gym is opening up in Gatineau, Quebec!
- Trent House lost a short notice bout to Koa Ramos via triangle choke in the first round of their bout on KOTC “Double Impact” in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho on October 4th. Ramos (7-5) was on a 4 fight losing streak prior to defeating “Slaughter” House.
- Go learn from UFC vet, Team Alpha Male Head Coach & 2013 MMA Coach of the Year, Duane “Bang” Ludwig at Champions Creed on November 9 & 10!
- Elvis Vukaj will be making his pro boxing debut against fellow MMA fighter Layne McTaggart at Teofista Boxing Series 11 in Calgary on November 9th.
- Lance Gibson appeared on Arrow as a truck driver this past week, he joins Paul Lazenby (15 appearances) as the second Canadian MMA personality to appear on the show!
- Check out DJ KSOS’ (Krzysztof Soszynski) first soundcloud upload at https://soundcloud.com/k-sos/
- Harvey Panesar lost his bid to be elected to Edmonton City Council amidst rumours that he signed contracts to produce pornography. The former promoter came in third place in Ward 11.
