Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – June 23, 2014


Gossip QueenI am not sure if you have heard of this little sporting event called the World Cup, but it has given me an idea. Why not have an Ultimate Fighter World Cup? Since Bellator seems to be ditching the MMA tournament, I say steal that idea but have eight fighters, all from different nations, compete in a tournament!

Enough of my thoughts, on to the rumours!

  • Expect Joe Doerksen to appear on the KOTC Winnipeg card in September!
  • Alex Ricci has headed down to Florida to train with the Blackzilians.
  • Want to play with a Canadian fighter in the UFC EA Sports video game? Your options are limited. It appears that only Georges St-Pierre, Rory MacDonald, TJ Grant, and Sarah Kaufman are characters in the game. Hopefully, the UFC game will have updates or add ons with additional Canadians as tons were over looked!
  • Prestige Fight Club, based in the city of Weyburn, is looking to be the first promotion in Saskatchewan to put on a pro event under the new Saskatchewan Commission
  • Dan Guillemette called cops on the Heroes promotion claiming that they were running an illegal amateur show in Ottawa. Read all the drama HERE

  • Jeremy Kennedy is sure keeping busy going back and forth between Canada and Thailand and taking fights! He is fighting on July 25th for CMFC 4 (Chiang Mai Fighting Championship) in Thailand. Then he’ll be fighting Andre Silva in the main event of BFL 32 on August 23rd and possibly fighting former UFC fighter Will Chope fight in early October at Full Metal Dojo 3 in Thailand!
  • Whenever the next Invicta is announced, Charmaine Tweet will face Team Alpha Male’s Veronica Rothenhausler at Lightweight. 
  • Saskatchewan Commission news and notes:
  • It looks like Pat Fiacco will be tagged as the Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Boxing and MMA commission. Fiacco is a former Canadian and provincial boxing champion, a former mayor of Regina and served as boxing referee and judge in the 2004 Athens Olympics.
  • The Saskatchewan Commission could be ready for business as early as mid-July. Look for them to accept applications for promoter licenses and event permits. Saskatchewan could see its first event in the fall.
  • Sounds like Saskatchewan will not sanction amateur MMA once the new commission is formed. Currently, Saskatchewan is one of the few provinces to allow amateur, but it looks like it will flip flop and only sanction pro fights.
  • Titan will not be heading to Montreal.  Too bad.
  • Kyle OIiveira will be making his boxing debut on July 6th in Calgary at The Roadhouse. He is taking on also debuting Alex Rynn.
  • Teofista Boxing – Series 13 will feature MMA Fighters Behrang Yousefi and Noah Ali battling it out and Louie Grover taking on Roxie Lam on the June 26 fight card in Calgary!
  • Richard Arsenault will look to stay undefeated in boxing (3-0) when he takes on tough 5-0 undefeated boxer Nathan Millier on July 26th at Festival Arena in Shediac, NB. Three guys named Arsenault on the card, not sure if any of them are related. Interesting tidbit about Millier, he previously fought Steven Rodgers in a boxing bout that was ruled a no contest due to an unintentional headbutt.
  • Three Canadians fought at Glory 17/Last Man Standing this weekend! “Bazooka Joe” Joseph Valtellini beat Marc de Bonte by Unanimous Decision to become the Glory Welterweight champion, Gabriel Varga defeated Shane Oblonsky to win the Featherweight Contender Tournament, and Simon Marcus lost via 4th round KO to Joe Schilling!
  • Wondering where Curtis Demarce has been? Well it looks like he’s taken a break from MMA and has entered the bodybuilding/physique/modeling world! Check out some of his HOT and sexy pics!

    I’d like to see a promotion put together
    Michael Karkula 6-0 vs Kyle Nelson 6-0
    Jeremy Kennedy 4-0 vs Mike Mallot 4-0

    The record aspect of it is cool and I really like both match ups!

    Aw man! First Josh Hill now and Demarce? Come on guys! We really need to be paying our Canadian MMA fighters way more money. Curtis looks huge in those pics. He will need to loose all that fake plastic muscle if he wants to fight at 155 again.
