Canadians in Combat – August 2020


Top MMA News will be focusing exclusively on Canadian MMA and taking a step back from posting UFC, Bellator, PFL and other fight cards unless they take place in the Great White North! With that being said at the beginning of each month we’ll be posting a list of Canadian fighters that will be competing outside Canada.

More and more MMA promotions are slowly re-starting their operations and we’ve got 9 Canadian fighters (and counting) set to throw down this month! As the fights occur we will update this post with the results and Top MMA News will remain your #1 Source for Canadian MMA News.

    A really exciting and important month for Canadian MMA. We are trending up in a huge way because of the momentum created by a bunch of our talent including Tanner Boser who is now booked to fight Arlovski. Can’t wait to watch these fights this month and truly prove we are a force to be reckoned with!
