    can’t wait to see the haggis basher on this list he deserves it! As a former Sarnian living and training in Alberta your career is a big inspiration and motivator for me. I hope to get the chance to train at supreme when I’m in sarnia for 3 weeks this summer not sure if you guys are down with having visitors come.

    Fraser must say you have easily one of the best Canadian nicknames. Would love to see you and Denis fight one day.

    Haggis Basher is easily one of the best P4P in Canada. He can fight and win at 135, 145, 155. That is pretty fuckin impressive!!

    way to go eric, but really, he should be above delorme, no disrespect, but he did beat him… and in my opinion he did it decisively too.

  22. MMA Scoop says:

    Don’t see anybody subbing Fraser in round one. I think Gagnon wins this though.

    And Fraser’s BJJ is far, far beyond the caliber of those two.

  25. MMA Scoop says:

    so . . . not even sure if Gagnon wants to take it to the ground against the Haggis Basher.

    I would love to fight Gagnon, I need a opponent Dec 3rd in Sarnia, on. We can fight 135 or 145.

  27. MMA Scoop says:

    Sounds good to me, winner to the UFC. If it doesn’t work out I know Wadsworth is looking for a fight around that date at 145.

  28. I thought Gagnon was under exclusive contract with Ringside?

    Maybe Fraser can fight in Ringside in December, as they have an event in Quebec City.

  31. Julian Cymbalista-Clapp says:

    Covering Ringside 12 at the Bell Centre last night, it was strongly suggested that Gagnon’s next bout will be against his original opponent, Ringside bantam champion Stephane Pelletier.

  32. booboo says:

    mma scoop i dont think fraser is that far ahead of groulx bjj , he gave gagnon ALL he could handle and had him in trouble a few times . thats the fist time ive seen gagnon in trouble even against romero he wasnt in trouble like that . gagnon and fraser is the real fight here , but i have a feeln Mitch might get the call b 4 then . hopefully hes a fuckn beast at 135 DAMN !!

  34. Grasshopper says:

    Fightmatrix.com has now ranked Gagnon #2 in Canada and #36 Overall. He is bookended by Jabouin (#1) and Menjivar (#3), 2 UFC fighters.

    He’s getting the call. It will be against an American and it will be in Canada. The when is debatable but he should keep a suitcase packed and lay off the carrot cake.

    not bad Darren , I still don’t think bibi should be on can rankings no matter who he married, pelliter should be out of top ten , and wheres fraser???hasn’t brigham had 2 fights since he returned to competiton , both excellent outings but ??? quite a leap….fissette should be there even tyler davis , eric Wilson still not out of the pic , but should drop to 25….anyhow glad you posted it

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 2

  42. Jeff Harrison says:

    Barnier version 3.0 vs Fissette or Hill ? Could be fun!

  46. hasslehoff says:

    Obviously an argument can be made for many fighters who should be ranked. 1-8 belong, but no way Pelletier and definitely not Barnier should be ranked. There are other fighter much more deserving
