Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – September 13, 2017


UFC 215 has come and gone with some disappointment as well as a little controversy. Despite the main event cancellation the UFC announced a “sell out” of 16,232 and a live gate of $2,028,307.14 USD so it sounds like a successful debut. As far as the controversy, a lot of people are upset at the stoppage in the Gavin Tucker fight and think referee Kyle Cardinal should’ve stopped it way sooner… what do you think fight fans?

We’d also like to congratulate Mitch “Danger Zone” Clarke on a great MMA career. Clarke retired following his 2nd round TKO loss to Alex White this past weekend.

And now on to the rumours!

  • Jeremy Kennedy will look to remain undefeated when he takes on once beaten Australian Alexander Volkanovski at UFC Fight Night 121
  • Also on the Fight Night 121 card will be a battle between a pair of TUF Nations veterans. Middleweight winner Elias Theodorou will take on four time Olympic judoka Dan Kelly.
  • Misha Cirkunov and Glover Teixeira will no longer meet at UFC Fight Night 119 but this is good news! Why? Because the fight has been moved to the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba for UFC on FOX 26!
  • Absolute Championship Berkut makes their Canadian debut this October and we now know that Tanner Boser will be taking on Dave Cryer. Also slated for the card will be Peter Grajcar against Imran Abaev and Xavier Alaoui taking on Edgars Skrivers.
  • As Mike Malott continues his training with Team Alpha Male in Sacramento his next bout will in nearby Jackson, California when he takes on Sal Becerra at GKO 11 on November 4.



  • After his win over Shonie Carter at Fight Night 4 in Medicine Hat this weekend Joe Riggs took aim at Ryan Machan, Michael Hill and Brendan Kornberger. Telling them all to “Pull your pussy out of your pants…” and it sounds like Ryan Machan has accepted the challenge! Stay tuned for more!
  • Micah Brakefield will return to the cage to face Johnavan Vistante at Destiny MMA in Hawaii on October 7th.
  • Ryan Ford improved to 13-0 as a pro boxer this weekend with a 5th round TKO over Joaquin Murrieta.
  • Dwayne Lewis will step back into the squared circle taking on “The Grampinator” Lee Mein at Dekada Boxing on October 14.

    Malott is super talented. Wish he would compete more often. TKO should pick this guy up for a fight or two.

    Anyone know why this guy isn’t more active?

    Marcus hicks was officially fired by the promotion TKO. Hicks is now the only professional fighter in Canada banned from EVERY SINGLE pro promotion.
