Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – November 30, 2017

By:

MFC 34 Ring GirlThe next season of The Ultimate Fighter will begin filming in January 2018 and they’re calling for undefeated male Featherweights, Lightweights and Welterweights with at least three fights. Canada has several great candidates including Alexander Martinez, Pat Pytlik and BFL champions Cole Smith and Chris Anderson among many others.

Here come the rumours…

  • TKO 42 takes place February 23rd and will feature a Featherweight tournament. Rumored participants are Joao Luis Noguira, Hatsu Hioki, the winner of TJ Laramie and Charles Jourdain plus the winner of Alex Morgan and Yiles Djiroun.
  • Chris Anderson was forced to pull out of his BFL 52 Middleweight Title fight against Matt Dwyer just hours before the bout and has been stripped of the Welterweight Title. This has prompted Battlefield Fight League officials to re-schedule the matchup for BFL 53 on January 13.
  • Unified MMA 34 will be March 16 in Edmonton and the first fight announced will be a battle between former Lightweight champ Tristan Connelly and former title challenger Mike Scarcello.
  • Chris Kelades won his M-1 Global debut submitting Oleg Lichkovakha via Kimura in the third round. Kelades has now won three in a row since his exit from the UFC.
  • Tyler Jackson will return from a 3 year hiatus to take on TUF 11 alum Jamie Yager at Primus FC which goes down December 12th in Oklahoma. Also on the card will be Lance Gibson Jr who will be making his professional debut.

  • Longtime amateur standout Anthony Romero made his long awaited pro debut earning unanimous decision victory over Peter San Antonio at KOTC Ultimate Mix. Also on the card Xavier Nash fell to 3-3 losing to Sean Felton by TKO in the night’s co main event.
  • Gary Mangat fell to 10-2 after suffering a quick TKO loss to Stephen Loman at Brave CG 9, his first loss in over 4 years.

  • Winnipeg’s Katie Saull will face off against Andy Nguyen at KOTC Mercenaries January 13th in Iowa.
  • Windsor native Manny Alfaro crossed the border for WXC 70 but dropped a unanimous decision to Drew Morais. The MTC alum’s record falls to 3-2
  • Ryan Ford is back in the boxing ring December 9 in Kemerova, Oblast, Russia taking on the #15 ranked Super-Middleweight in the world Fedor Chudinov (15-2) For the WBA Intercontinental Super Middleweight Title!

    So Anderson pulls out of his MW title fight and is stripped of the WW title? Now a guy who is 2-4 in his last 6, fights a guy whos 1-3 in his last 4 fight for the title? And Andy already beat both? He should have been stripped of the MW title.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 5

    Hey mmafam, it easy to make stuff sound good or bad. I won my last 2 fight in under 2 minutes and 1 of them being against a former champ.
    – only guy who ”Andy” could not finish and who submitted him twice in their grappling match.
    – I offered to fight at either WW or MW but champ is not looking to fight me again.
    The ”other guy” was 9 W and 1 loss as an amateur and former WW champ as a pro.
    If you are into this fight or don’t respect what we do maybe change you name to #mmadick or #negativenancy! #showtime #andnew

    I don’t usually engage with keyboard warriors but I earned my shot (TWICE actually). True mma fans know this is a great scrap!

    First of all Id like to apologize to both of these great warriors for bringng up their records and hurting their feelings. I sometimes forget how sensitive society is theses days and the mere use of facts and statistcs may trigger the sensitve amongst us. And thats unacceptable on my part. Your right this is a great fight and I cant wait to see who the 2nd best WW in BFL is.
