Canadian MMA Rumour Mill – November 28, 2019


With less than a month to go until Christmas what Canadian fights are on your wish list this Holiday season? It’s hard not to go with the obvious and hope for GSP vs. McGregor sometime in 2019!

…and now for the Rumours! 

  • Matt Dwyer will look for his fourth straight victory since his release from the UFC when he challenges Joe Riggs for the Fight Night Middleweight Title on January 25 in Lethbridge.
  • Tristan Connelly will defend his CageSport Lightweight Title against Tyrone Henderson at CageSport 54 in Tacoma, Washington on December 15.
  • Shane Campbell is heading to Russia for his next bout when he takes on Magomedsaygid Alibekov at Russian Cagefighting Championship on December 15.
  • Alex Martinez will return to the cage at Brave CF 19 in South Africa on December 12 when he takes on Hanru Botha in a Lightweight bout.
  • With both of their respective opponents off the Unified 35 card, Garret Nybakken and Nick Hrabec will now face off in a rematch of their 2015 bout.



  • Huge fight in the works as Kultar Gill comes out of retirement to take on UFC veteran Dennis Hallman in the main event of Mamba Fight Night 6 on March 8 in Abbotsford, BC.
  • Tyler Wilson is set to challenge Cole Smith for his Bantamweight Title in the main event of Battlefield Fight League 59 in Coquitlam on January 12.
  • Anastasia Nikolakakos will make her Invicta FC debut on December 15 when she takes on Ashley Medina in an Atomweight bout.
  • Kyle Nelson defeated Morteza Rezaei via bloody TKO at RXF 32 in Romania last weekend pushing his win streak to 6 in a row including 5 finishes. Nelson is now 12-1 and pushing for a UFC contract! Gabe Sagman also picked up a Unanimous Decision victory on the same card.
  • Congrats to Jett Grande who went 4-0 with three Unanimous and one Majority decision in Bahrain to claim the Amateur Welterweight Junior World Championship

    @mmafan just based on experience it is not likely…. Diesel would not take tough fights like that outside A level promotions. In A promotions he is likely to make at least 20/20 which for him would most likely be overseas and he is looking for a win to get back over there
    He has been scheduled three times on fight night/been on poster 3 times for fight night yet only showed up when he had shonie carter as an opponent… (a fight in which he was heavily favoured in)
    By no means am i trying to put the fight night promotion down…. i Just dont see Diesel stepping in the cage for this fight especially at 185 We have talked to Joe about many fights in the past and he has always been nice and respectful and smart in picking the matchups he wants…. this matchup against Matt imo is very unlikely… i guess we will see in the upcoming weeks

    Jay he’s had two Canadian fight night cards one against Cody McKenzie and one against shonie… idk where you get your information from but you sound butt hurt or something or possibly do your research…
    I’ll bet 100$ too your +500 bet of him showing if this bout is official !

    Who down votes Ronson going back to the UFC..? Whether you like him or not is irrelevant. the guys a stud, double champ in TKO and has never ducked anyone.

    The guy took Kevin Lee to a split decision lol.

    Oh neat.

    Wilson gets to piss people off even more when he doesn’t make weight.

    At least needing to change the bout to catchweight 24 hours before the fight will keep everyone on their toes.
