Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – February 3, 2014
Wow….10 out of 12 fights at UFC 169 went to a decision. There were 9 decisions at UFC 161 last year. Are decisions on the upswing? I hope not as I look forward to at least a few submissions and KOs every card.
- Bellator will hold a show at Casino Rama on May 9th.
- Sounds like Stuart Austin will be on that Ontario Bellator card fighting “WARDOG” Craig Hudson!
- Havoc FC 5 will be held on May 2nd!

- Congratulations go out to Chris Clements on the birth of his son, Liam!
