Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – June 22, 2016

By:

Unified Ring Girl2Ladies and Gentlemen, GSP IS BACK…. I know, I know we’ve been hearing this forever but this time the words came directly”de la bouche du cheval”. Georges St. Pierre announced Monday on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani that he is ready to make his comeback and is in the midst of contract negotiations with the UFC. St. Pierre has expressed interest in bouts with both Conor McGregor and Michael Bisping!

With his loss against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson this past weekend, Rory MacDonald is officially a free agent. What’s next for Canada’s #1 Pound for Pound fighter… will we see him back in the Octagon or will “The Red King” move on to a new organization? Bendo vs. Rory anyone?

Hearing that Sabah Fadai and Jeremy Kennedy will lock horns on October 29th for BFL!

Hoping for some good news out of Red Deer this week as the guys at Havoc FC are looking towards December for their next show. Expect to see Ryan Machan, Grayson Wells and Chris Lafantaisie on the card if everything goes as planned!

Denis Puric and Will Romero will be in China this weekend and competing on a China vs The World show! Best of Luck!

Hard Knocks 51 is set for October 14 at the Markin MacPhail Centre in Calgary. Jesse Arnett and Rodney Wallace are scheduled to defend their titles against opponents to be named as well as the re-scheduled Welterweight Title fight between Champ Cody Wilson and challenger Ryan Machan.

KO Boxing 75 went down this weekend with a handful of boxers with MMA experience on the card. Adam Braidwood scored his fourth straight victory with a second round KO of Todd Stoute who was making his pro boxing debut and Craig Hudson fell short in his debut in a 4 round Unanimous Decision loss against Stan Surmacz Ahumada.

Add MMA names Tristan Connelly, Desmond Johnson and Justin Schmit to the fighters competing on the boxing show promoted by Teofista in Calgary on June 25th!
