    I honestly love the HK product, I just don’t understand the matchmaking…

    Ali x Gower is an awesome fight and I’m excited to see guys like Vyron Phillips, Justin Basra and Thomas Godin, but why bring in these Brazilians and Americans?

    It’s a Canadian product with a Canadian fanbase and yet you see fights like Gabriel Vian (3-1 American) versus Bruno Cesar (0-3 Brazilian) routinely.

    Why not save that money and grow your divisions by bringing in guys like:

    Shane Campbell (12-5)
    Miles Anstead (9-1)
    Josh Hill (15-2)
    Kyle Nelson (9-1)
    Gavin Tucker (9-0)
    Sergej Juskevic (15-8-2)
    Mandel Nallo (5-0)
    Michael Hill (9-4)
    Albert Cheng (8-3)
    Kyle Prepolec (9-4)

    Literally 75 other good guys the fans would rather see over Flavio Magon….

    What happened to bringing in fighters from the East? Has TKO locked up all the talent East of Winnipeg?

    Yeah I was suprised they didnt give Hill a fight after he was going to step up on short notice and fight Wilson before his injury. Also what happened to that dewsberry kid? Did he quit fighting?

    As the new matchmaker for Hardknocks just want to say we have tv deals with the USA and Brazil so we need fighters from there to accommodate those deals. We will continue to bring guys from out east in and have title fights when the guys are available. Even with doing shows every couple months hard to get everyone on. We also need to keep local fighters on the show for the crowd. Lots of dynamics to deal with but great opportunities for fighters to get fights and exposure. Note to fighters keep your medicals up to date so your ready to fight.

    Now all Hard Knocks needs to do is get rid of Ari Taub, a true cancer to Canadian mma and professional scumbag

    Lee Mein you are the fucking man so if you’re matchmaking I’m not going to question it.

    It’s just that the 3 Brazilian fighters being used combine for a 11-13 record. I can’t imagine people from Brazil are tuning into see guys that wouldn’t even cut it on their regional circuit let alone ours.

    Either way looking forward to the card and a big year for Hard Knocks
