Who’s Next… LAMMQ 4

By:

LAMMQLAMMQ held their 4th card this past Saturday with Jonathan “District” Meunier improving his record to 5-0 with a two round shellacking of Lloyd Galindo, while other Quebec prospects continued their development with some exciting fights throughout the under card. Keep in mind, in most cases the matchups listed here are hypothetical and have not been announced or rumored to be taking place unless otherwise noted.

Let us know who you think should be up next for the big winners and the rest of the card in the comment section below.

Jonathan Meunier (5-0) vs. Francis Charbonneau (3-0)
Meunier is easily the best fighter no one has heard of in Canada. He is undefeated in professional bouts and has finished every single one of his opponents. In his last two bouts, he has finished some rather experienced fighters like Yannis Jacquet and Lloyd Galindo. At this point in his career, a step up in competition would be great to see but there is one more undefeated Welterweight coming up in Quebec so why not finish off the province before taking on the country. Charbonneau actually made his pro debut in 2011 defeating Christ Franck via unanimous decision. Since then, he has finished off Matt Parsons and long time veteran Stephane Lamarche. Two undefeated, up and coming prospects top billing a local card would be a great ticket seller in any town across La Belle Province. Charbonneau may not have as many fights but in terms of time spent training, this would be an excellent match up and would determine the top 170 lbs up and comer to come out of Quebec.

Marc-André Barriault (3-0) vs. Jason Bissonette (4-2)
Barriault was another prospect that kept his perfect record intact this past weekend with a first round TKO of OneFC veteran James Kouame that improved his record to 3-0 with three first round TKO/KO stoppages. Bissonette has been fighting professionally since 2007 and has taken on all comers during his career and though he may not be the most polished MMA fighter, he has heart for days and will not stop fighting if he’s still breathing. This match up makes perfect sense for any area of Quebec – even in the Gatineau/Ottawa area this would be a tremendous ticket seller thus any Quebec promotion Hybrid, LAMMQ and Fight4Pride could put it on. Either Barriault continues his rash of quick assaults and proves he’s the real deal or Bissonette would add another tough scalp to his mantle.  Either way, no matter how long it lasted, it would be and excellent scrap.

Alex Morgan (3-2) vs. Dan Lariviere (4-4)
Morgan was able to improve his record to above .500 with a co-main event finish over the durable Mathieu Dubois. Inconsistency has plagued Morgan throughout his career but with his win this past weekend, he has won two in a row and seems to have turned a corner in his career. Lariviere also fought this past weekend dropping a bout via submission to the debuting Justin Sanders. Like Morgan, Lariviere has also been plagued by inconsistency and adversely he has lost two in row since defeating Garret Nybakken in his WSOF debut this past February. For Morgan, this would be a great opportunity to face a known Canadian Featherweight and prove his game is up to par with the national scene while for Lariviere this would a solid step back and a chance to improve his record to over .500. Lariviere has lost some bouts via submission but possesses a solid ground game while Morgan has been subbed in both his losses so either Morgan takes the win by shoring up his jits or Lariviere gets the “W” by dominating on the mat. Either way this is a great matchup for both men who need a solid win to continue their careers down the right path.
