Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – November 19, 2013
Congrats to Canada’s world champion Georges St-Pierre on retaining his title again. He won a close and exciting fight on Saturday. I hope GSP overcomes his personal issues and sleeps easy soon! If that was his last fight, what an exciting fight to retire on!
On to the rumours:
- And in Bizarro World … Victor Valimaki and the MFC have seemingly made up and the Matrix 2.0 will be joining the Maximum Fighting Championship. I guess the promotions former LHW champ is coming home, so to speak!
- Aiemann Zahabi will be fighting for Titan Fighting in January 2014!
- Provincial Fighting Championships is set to have a show at the Agriplex in London on March 8th. Also, it seems like Mississauga will host PFC’s third show on April 17th at the Hershey Centre.
- How weird is it that the guy that cornered Ebersole (vs Story) through the FundaFighter campaign was a Tristar guy named Colin Baikie? Rick Story and GSP both trained for their UFC 167 fights at Tristar…
- Substance Combat is looking at dates of March in Montreal and April in Toronto!
- James Mancini and Joel Powell are having a hard time finding opponents that are willing to actually take them on!
- Matt Dwyer vs Shonie Carter won’t be happening on the next BFL card due to both being injured. The fight will now take place in January.
- I’m hearing rumours that WSOF may be shown live on TSN? Now that’d be a big deal!
- Looking for a Welterweight that’s always ready? Matt MacGrath is looking for one more fight in 2013 and is available!
- Rumblings from La Belle Province are that Fundafighter will be running a show in February in Montreal, with the fights being paid for by the fans.
