Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – August 28, 2017


MFC 34 Ring GirlWow… did anyone else expect Conor McGregor to do as well as he did against Floyd Mayweather this weekend. What do you guys think of the fight? Will we see McGregor back in the boxing ring? Will we even see him back in the Octagon? He could easily walk away right now and be set for life! Fair play to you Mr. McGregor!

…and now on to the Rumours

  • Some huge news as Absolute Championship Berkut will make their Canadian debut October 14 in Montreal, Quebec. In the main event Yoni Sherbatov takes on UFC veteran and former Bellator Bantamweight Champion Zach Makovsky in a Flyweight contest. Also on the card will be top Canadian Heavyweight Tanner Boser.
  • Not sure how we missed this one but Josh Hill made his Fight Nights Global debut last weekend and picked up a first round rear-naked choke victory over Grachik Engibaryan.
  • Sarah Kaufman is set return to the cage at Fight Night 4 in Medicine Hat on September 9. Kaufman is expected to face Montserrat Alvarez in a Bantamweight scrap!
  • Nordine Taleb has been hired as the bodyguard for Brazilian soccer superstar Neymar who recently became the highest paid player star in the game, inking a 5-year contract that will see him earn the equivalent over $43 Million (CAD)/year



  • Dejan Kajic picked up one of the biggest wins of his career this weekend when he submitted Tim Welch by Rear-Naked Choke in the second round of their ICF 28 bout in Montana.
  • Vancouver born Christian Lee continues to rack up the finishes in ONE Championship in Asia. Lee submitted Keanu Subba by third round Armbar in Malaysia this past weekend to improve to 7-1 with the promotion.
  • Kunlun Fight 65 also went down this weekend with Will Romero defeating He Biao in by Unanimous Decision in the Kickboxing tournament reserve bout. Romero was not needed to step in to the tournament so lets hope this earns him a berth in the next tourney!

    Looks like ECSC has pulled their thumb out of their backsides and hired a firm who specializes in….. well accounting. Oh well, any movement forward is good movement right?
