Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – June 11, 2018


Top MMA News would like to send our best wishes to UFC veteran and former MFC and Fight Club Light-Heavyweight Champion Victor Valimaki who is in the biggest fight of his career but this time it’s outside of the cage. Valimaki recently announced that he is battling Neuromyelitis Optica which is an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis. Get well soon Victor, we’re all in your corner!

…and now for the rumours!

  • Some more good news for Canadian MMA fans as Dana White recently announced the Octagon will debut in Moncton, New Brunswick at the brand new SMG Moncton Downtown Centre on October 27 for a UFC Fight Night event. Moncton will become the 11th Canadian city to host a UFC event.
  • After focusing his attention on boxing for the last three and a half years Ryan Ford has been teasing a comeback to MMA competition. Ford and Unified President Sunny Sareen posted a picture on social media this weekend hinting at a possible return. If Forf returns to his old stomping grounds at the River Cree Resort and Casino who would you like to see him face?
  • We finally have the card for XFFC’s debut in Pentiction, BC. In the main event Matt Dwyer will take on fellow UFC veteran Dominique Steele for the Middleweight Title and in the co-main event Tom O’Connor will now meet Chris Day instead of Craig Shintani as originally announced for the Featherweight Title.



  • Some interesting BFL news as they have dropped the Welterweight division and added the Super Lightweight (165lbs) and Super Welterweight (175lbs) divisions. David Perron is now the Super-Welterweight Champion of BFL and a Super-Lightweight Champion should be coming soon.
  • Souksavanh Khampasath will return to the cage at M1 Global 94 in Orenburg, Russia on June 15 against Gegham Vardanyan.
  • Adam “Warhammer” Hunter is set to complete his 2 year USADA anti-doping suspension later this summer. It is currently unknown if he will still be with the UFC or if he will return to the regional circuit.
