Happy New Year everyone.  I hope everyone has a great New Year’s Eve, finishes 2013 with KO, and welcomes 2014 with a double leg takedown.  2013 was a good year, but I hope 2014 brings us more MMA in Canada that we had this year!

On to the rumours:

  • Look for Brandt Dewsbery to take on Sergej Juskevic at Hard Knocks 34. This fight in my opinion is one of the bigger name fights in HK history!  Busy start of 2014 for Dewsbery as it was recently announced he will take on Mark Drummond at WSOF in February.
  • Honor Fight will be holding its third show, appropriately called Third Battle, on February 22nd at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon, SK. The show will be a full amateur MMA, Muay Thai, and Boxing event and sanctioned by SMAA and Sask Boxing!
  • K1 Max Quarter-Finals News: Shane Campbell continued his dominance in kickboxing/muay thai in 2013 by advancing to the Semi-Finals of K1 Max with a TKO over the highly regarded Christopher Mena in the second round of their Quarter-Final bout.  Congrats Shaolin!
  • Elmer Waterhen may have recently retired from MMA, but he’s going to make his pro Muay Thai debut on January 24th on Mike Miles’ International Muay Thai Gala!
  • CONGRATS to the MFC’s Scott Zerr who got married over the holidays!

  • Hockey Goon! Former Elite 1 champ Chris Johnson is playing in the NESHL for Tracadie. Based on the league site, he has played in a single game and has 15 penalty minutes! Wow!

What’s the Latest on Ryan Dickson?

  • Every second rumour seems to be about Ryan Dickson this past month!  I figured we needed a special section in the rumour mill just for him.
  • The latest Dickson rumour has the Ontario fighter taking on Matt MacGrath in London on March 8 at Provincial Fighting Championships 2.
  • This gave me a bit of a chuckle. Tyson Steele of Alliance Martial Arts is seemingly chasing Ryan Dickson for a fight, but Ryan will be in California at a different Alliance MMA gym (no affiliation there) training along with Josh Hill.

    @judon’t that is laughable, Tyson’s only recent loss is to the wsof champ…Tyson has more wins, bigger wins and has been on a bigger stage, yet you believe he’s not up to Dickson’s standard…wow.

    Well-loved! Thumb up 34 Thumb down 2

    Gracie is a big name, but I wouldn’t say anything on his record is close to Dickson. What I was really talking about is the fact that if Dickson wins that, he’s beat a guy coming off a loss, who is ranked 150+ spots lower then him; big deal.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 3 Thumb down 11

  5. Chris Johnson already received his first suspension. 1 gamer.
