Rough and hectic days at Top MMA News, WAMMA and especially Rolly Delorme are sure not happy with us and what was written in the play by play of Delorme vs Arnett this past weekend. Thanks a lot, BKB!

Rumours:

  • Help Unified find an opponent for Tim Hague on Unified 25 on November 6th! Who would you guys like to see challenge Tim Hague for his Unified HW strap?
  • Hearing that Randy Turner is looking to get back in there this fall. Randy’s currently looking for a bout at Flyweight!
  • I’m no psychiatrist but I did watch a lot of Frasier and I think Lenny Wheeler hates fighting or maybe he is claustrophobic in the cage. Why else would he not have gone the distance in 12 MMA fights? He has not seen the second round since his first MMA fight seven years ago! His last three fights have all lasted well under one minute each! This weekend was no difference when he KO’d his opponent in 39 seconds. Great job, Lenny!
  • Z Promotions, the Canadian half of the promoter’s group behind Fight Night at the Corral, plan to hold at least three more events coming up with at least one in Edmonton.
  • Although not Canadian, Thiago Goncalves has fought and trained in Canada enough.  He has signed with Bellator.  Remember that Jambo beat teammate Matt Baker at WSOF 21 in one of the stranger bouts in recent memory.
  • Mike Ricci, who is most definitely Canadian, has signed with the World Series of Fighting.
  • __________________________________________________________________________


    _______________________________________________________________________

  • Come on Super Fight League, you said that SFL 42 would be on your YouTube channel the day after the show… still waiting.
  • Way to go Andrew Payne! Payne an ex-military member who’s fought ammy a few times in the past rescued two girls from drowning last week in BC!
  • Big things happening for Don Andrews! Not only did one of the good guys in the sport make his Super Fight League announcing debut on Saturday but he’s now also the Public Address announcer for the Vancouver Whitecaps of the MLS! Congrats Don!
  • The 4th Annual Shawn Tompkins Memorial Golf Tourney is ‎being held on August 23rd. Bas Rutten will be there along many other fighters.
  • Andrew McInnes’ opponent at Submission Pro in Truro will be Jason MacKay!
  • Ryan Ford’s opponent for his September 11th boxing contest will be Gary Kopas (4-10-2) out of Saskatoon. In what may seem like a lifetime ago, Kopas at the time 4-5-1 did fight Steve Franjic in 2013 unsuccessfully for the vacant Canadian Super Middleweight Title.

  1. How about Tim fighting big Ian aka The Kung fu Panda Asham, I hear the Panda owes Tim money which not only adds to the drama but makes it personal.

    Etown Wanksters has no idea what he’s talking about.
    It’s a great fight for Ford for the start of his new career. Gary’s no push over.

  8. @Apels and Oranges, no Tim got the hoof not the boot from Black Sheep MMA, I hear it was a wooly situation, and it went from Baaaaaad to worse, but sometimes you gotta do whats right grab the bull by the horns and take care of business.

    Heard Timmy got canned because of stolen money. Not that I would believe any of that without proof, Hicks isn’t exactly the most honest guy either. He does say he’ll make weight every fight…

  11. In keeping with Black Sheep terminology, tim was told to Flock Off!! Maybe his buddy valimaki will feel sorry for him and take him under his wing at the ufc gym he manages.

    Man, all this Hicks/Hague shittalk stuff is hilarious, but my god do we not have anything of substance to discuss? It’s getting really old reading the mill every week and just reading hate. Tim sucks, Hicks sucks, ok now onto the rest of the mma scene in Canada…

    Badou Jack lol of course fords not going to fight the WBC super middleweight champ, he just switched sports. Isnt this what you boxers do, fight cans to build up your records?

    Why dont you send one of your “hungry,angry, tough as nails golden gloves champs, to fight Jack?

    As for mma Ford would have smashed any ontario or quebec fighters around. (Except Rory, who we all know is a good B.C kid) the last time he fought a guy from ontario he kicked his head into the 3rd row.

    Also “Ford we are waiting. We are more than…” Whos we? You going to jump in the ring with him?

    Hague is really annoying lately. He is fighting in the bareknuckle boxing in uk then backs out for some fight in russia he is backing out of now also.

    The most hated man in canadian mma or maybe all north american mma probably wont show up nov 6th either if the opponent is half way decent or has a pulse. Tim just give up fighting and open up your hotdog stand in edmonton.

    Who cares what Tim does? No one cares, fucking drop it my god some people have nothing better to do than just rip people all day (He sucks, hes fat, whatever, who gives a shit) Let him fail and move on.

    Some real Canadian MMA news/comments

    1) Big finish by Lenny Wheeler against a solid former Bellator fighter. Whats next for him? (I hope the answer is Hakeem or a top guy like that)

    2) Looks like Michael Spoenlein is training with Wooley, Ricci, Whitlock, etc in Toronto

    3) Jebb vs Anstead? XFFC or Hard Knocks lets see it!

    Cause Tim talks to much. He sets himself up and this is an MMA website and he’s SUPPOSED to be a fighter. Any news on the Russia fight or did he set himself up to look stupid again? Good in Marcus to rid himself of that 300 pound dead weight!

  27. PEDuser says:

    Tim mailed his passport to the states to get a work visa? This sounds like a terrible idea. Russia wont happen.

  28. Good news folks I heard from a reliable source that Tim is actually fighting the Russian, but first he has to get past another fighter who goes by the name of, Clubber Lang, hence the mailing his passport to the states.

    You haters are so jealous. Jealous Tim made it into the UFC. Jealous he has a belt. Jealous he has a big international fight in Russia.

  42. johnny fever says:

    He had a big international fight in England before he jammed out, so his supposedly Russian fight means squat! and what gives, he was supposed to fight Clubber Lang before he fights the Russian, or so the script goes.

    Tim Hague take note, if after 10 years in the fight game and your back at square one fighting on the small time local circuits, maybe its time to get up in the morning, put on the steel toed boots, pack a lunch kit and welcome to the real world called working for a living! not only as a responsibility to yourself but more so for the well being and providing for your sons future. amen.
