  2. Dean Panas says:

    Two corrections for you Cody. 1) It’s Shmyr, not Shymr (I know it was misspelled by the commission). 2) Hrbac and McGowan was a split decision, not unanimous.

    Congrats to all the fighters. Thank you for an entertaining night of fights!

    Congratulation perley on winning a fight against a guy twenty pounds lighter then you. Couldn’t make weigh in and then I seen you walk out and could only imagine how much more weight you put on, next time try fighting in a weight class that heavyweight and see where it takes you.

    The Perley fight is exactly why we need to stop rewriting contracts next to the scale. I get that from a business perspective having 8 fights instead of 7 is better but you seriously put a fighter’s safety at risk.

    Also – don’t bring the “well Justin said he was okay with it…” bullshit either. A fighter fights and what Justin did is what a pro does, you get in and fight.

    A commission is suppose to be there to protect fighters not preserve a card.

    Fucking bullshit if you ask me.

    Well I was wondering the same on Matt. I heard they brought in Parwez I don’t know maybe their fighting. But what I got is Parwez put his hand out to shake Matts and Matt spit on his hand. Awesome sportsmanship if you ask me. Its one thing to talk shit to each other but bodily fluids really.Talk shit by all means sell the fight. But to spit on someone shows your character. I hope if they do fight Parwez brushes it off trains hard and gets his back in the cage. I guess Matt wants to be the bad guy of Edmonton mma.

    Just another day of Complete MMA Fighters crushing cans from non-legit MMA camps/schools in Saskatchewan LOL.

    I guess after some of their recent losses against BC and Winnipeg fighters who come from solid, legit established camps, they have decided to crush cans.

    “Cam Yallits fights guys with winning records”

    Said no one ever

    I am pretty sure Cam didn t pick who he was fighting. A couple opponants fell through (one even posted on this site why he couldn t fight) and with the hard work Cam put in to getting himself in very good shape, he was probably just happy to have the opportunity to get back in there again.

    Much respect to ALL the fighters who fought on this card and every card.

    Merry Christmas
