July 2011 AX 1, "lost" $3700 dollars in ticket money and was paid his show purse regardless to compete vs Ryan Hunter. An arrangement was made to fight at no cost on AX2 nov 11 2011. Devan was issued more tickets under the stipulation that he return monies weekly in exchange for more ticket money, $800 of $2000 worth of ticket money was returned.
He then proceeded to experience "concussion" symptoms during the weigh ins for the event after appearing normal for three weeks preceding the event, and also 3 weeks AFTER the alleged "event" from which he suffered the concussion.
A confrontation occurred at the weigh ins and the outstanding money both from the first event as well as the second event has STILL not been collected. There is still just under$5000 worth of money owed to AFC Calgary pertaining to Devan Garnon. He did not compete in nov.
AFC 10, June 15 2012, Jesse Nergard, Amateur fighter from Calgary Training out of MMA University, called me 5 weeks before our june 15th event and told me that revenue Canada had garnished unpaid GST payments from his "registered business" and that he was going to have to go into the oilfield in order to work and pay for his two children and wife to live. Specifically that he could not pay his rent.
I asked how much his rent was and he told me $1400, at this point jesse had also been issued $1700 worth of AFC event tickets in hopes of selling to earn a commission and have his friends and family attend. I proceeded to tell Jesse that we would pay his rent, and in exchange we would keep his commission and work out the rest after. At this point, i considered Jesse a friend.
Jesse decided to fake an injury after cashing my check, jam out of the event, and close ALL communication with me until after our event. The ticket money owed($1700) as well as the money i paid for his rent($1400) total $3100 has STILL not been repaid, no effort has been made only death threats and ramblings of a desperate man attempting to convince me that he is in fact "not dodging" me.
I would recommend any promoter steer clear of these two supposed "men". They are in fact, spineless excuses for people and both should never be given the opportunity to fight for any promotion, EVER….
heads up. its sad but true.
Love the thread by the way. These things need to be publicized.
