    Maybe even joe doerkson wlll make an appearance fighting, not announcing. I do hope to see a few top level Manitoba versus Ontario match ups, other than obviously the main event

    Is Bongfeldt still training/fighting at all? He is from Kenora which is very close to Winnipeg! and possibly has a young guy that could be a package with to go along with him to fill an undercard spot.

    How far is Thunder Bay from Winnipeg? Gunn had his last fight in Winnipeg unless he has fought since

    thunder bay is pretty close. its about a 7 hour drive or 1 hour flight.

    sad that a 7 hour drive is close for us :(

    thunder bay definitely may have an interested participant or two

    winnipeg is always a crazy fun time with a great venue and even better crowds.

    Guaranteed that if my client (Matt “Kid Lightning” Veal) is on this show, he will put on fireworks like he does on EVERY SHOW he fights on.

    It’s time Canadian MMA gives this kid the credit and opportunities he deserves.

    ALWAYS makes weight.
    ALWAYS puts on a great show.
    ALWAYS fights the toughest guys.
    ALWAYS wears a thong to weigh ins.

    My question is how can you not have Kid Lightning on your Winnipeg show?

    Been outta the game for nearly 2 years but why not one last fight to end it where it all began, Letourneau vs stranger?!?!

  23. Old School Jake says:

    Now that would be an AWESOME tilt! Letourneau is one of my original (and oldest) clients from back in the day and loyal as they come. I would love an opportunity to get him this last fight even though I think he would be hanging them up way too soon :)

  24. James says:

    No offence but is WSOF not trying to market themselves with high caliber fighters? or just take the place of all the regional shows from each area?

    And not trying to jump on anyone but Letourneau is 4-2 and not around for a few years and Stranger has if I am not mistaken said he is done or just fighting for fun so the question is why? I could see for CFC or KOTC or something! Gunn has fought tough dudes and looked great in each of them but regardless in the end he lost whether it was a quick catch or not he lost the only good thing with Gunn is he has a chance to make a run if he fights more often and keeps fighting high caliber to climb back up. same with Matt Veal ? yes he is exciting and had some good performances but but he has a record of a 500 and many losses to mid range fighters from the upper MN/US

    As a fan I wanna see the WSOF bring in guys for more than just cause they are this or close or want a retirement fight, bring guys who we have at least heard of and wanting to break the big time and grow in the WSOF and who have a chance to do so

    so if you honestly ask yourself why? yes maybe Gunn vs Dickson makes sense both coming from losses and both were at one point the verge of making huge steps up the charts but otherwise lets not sink a good thing and just fill our home town card with because they are this or that or wanna finish here or there.

  25. Hat Trick says:

    Bellator is putting on show 113 and has done their best to put together a roster to make them entertaining enough to have over a million people watch them on national tv. If you look at the majority of cards, they contained mediocre .500 fighters or guy making debuts, as many events do. If the WSOF still hasn’t figured out how to get it right and put consistent quality show together, than maybe major changes are needed with those at the head of WSOF Canada….unless they have Ryan Ford fight on every card they have

  26. James says:

    Please elaborate on Bellator using 500 fighters or debut fighters?

    the top 6 to 8 fights on every card are either tournament fights or high end fights which do not include 500 or debut!!

  30. Old School Jake says:

    @James, no offence taken. I completely see your point and would want to see higher caliber fighters if you’re paying top dollar for tickets.

    With that being said, every promotion that would be considered a major league one will stack their undercards with regional/national fighters if they have the ability to sell tickets. Guys like Gunner, Letourneau and Veal always bring half the city of Thunder Bay with them when they fight, so I could see some rationale behind putting them on a card.

    I agree and would love to see a stacked card from top to bottom but if that won’t be the case, I would alternatively love to see some fun fights.

    And just to address the Veal comment, Matt is the type of guy that loves to fight. If I tell him he’s fighting the devil on Friday night, he would ask what time he had to be there. Unfortunately, that same mentality also had Matt taking some bad matchups and last minute fights which didn’t help his record. The Minnesota/Wisconsin fights are legit competition. They have some of the best wrestling pedigree in those States and breed some serious badasses. Matt has taken on some very stiff competition. I think Matt’s on the right path right now with his career and I’m glad to be back helping him with that.

  32. David Letourneau says:

    Maybe cfc is more appropriate for me to fight for as you said I’m 4-2 but you know what “James” I would be honored to fight again for cfc, M.A.D. And all of the guys associated with cfc are nothing less then a class act and if that’s all I’m good enough for I’m very ok with that. Further more every card ufc included has what you would consider lower level fighter including guys like myself and kid lightning, wsof will likely continue to grow with or without your opinion as they will with or without the likes of my 4-2 unsatisfactory record.

    @james- I’ll let you do the research from the 113 shows to prove my point and not from their tournament lineups, because what you are saying is bellator had never had sub.500 or 0-0 fighters compete. But I’ll let you prove yourself wrong. So is Canadian Craig Hudson not good enough in your eyes to fight on this show…I think not
