Canadian Rumour Mill – November 25, 2013
Hey folks! Just a reminder to vote for GSP on the UFC/EA Sports cover competition. He’s in the finals vs Alexander Gustafsson. Here is the link: http://www.ufc.com/covervote.
On to the rumours:
- Unified MMA will not be having a show this month due to their venue, the Mirage Banquet Hall, being fully booked this December. The show will now be in either February or March 2014.
- Look for either Rocky Biggs or Chase Maxwell to battle it out with Mark Drummond for the Unified MMA Welterweight belt in February/March 2014!
- Also, Matt Spisak may drop to Featherweight and take on Lenny Wheeler for Unified’s Featherweight strap on the same show!
- No Cheesecake on the TUF Finale! Sarah Moras will not be fighting on TUF Finale due to injury.
- Ricky Goodall will take on Alderic Keith at Welterweight in the main event of ECC 19 on January 25th in Halifax, NS. The bout will be a #1 contender fight.
- Ryan Machan will take on Brendan Tierney (10-5) for the Havoc FC Welterweight Title at Havoc FC 4 on January 31st in Red Deer Alberta. If you remember, Tierney last fought in March of this year on AFC 17, losing via KO to Ryan “Real Deal” Ford.
- Unified Combat League will have professional fights on their next Kamloops, BC show on February 22.
- The main event on UCL 20 will be Myles Merola taking on The Ultimate Fighter vet Richie Whitson.
- UCL 20’s co-main event will be BC native and BJJ Brown Belt Clay Davidson taking on Jordan Currie in a Middleweight contest.
- American Latoya Walker is also coming to BC to take on a Canadian at UCL 20. My hopes is that she will raise a “Ruckus” against River Jones in what would be Jones’ pro debut.
- I know the cat’s out of the bag now, but it is worth mentioning that Ryan Dickson steps in on short notice against Marcus Vinicios at WSOF 7.
- I’m not sure here, now I know that MFC is saying their January event is at the Shaw Conference Centre, but a few birdies have whispered to me that the show may actually be at the Edmonton Expo Centre… strange.
- Hearing World Series of Fighting could be in Edmonton as early as March 2014 with Ryan Ford making his WSOF debut on that card!
